Kristen Stewart auctioned off her time to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims

Kristen Stewart has raised 500,000 dollars for charity by spending just 15 minutes with a Middle Eastern prince.

The Twilight star helped the Hurricane Sandy fundraising effort by agreeing to the deal which was brokered by Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, according to the Daily Mail.

The unnamed prince paid the bill upfront to spend just 15 minutes to sit and talk with Kristen, 23, at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Harvey gathered together many of his high-profile friends to raise money for the relief effort at the benefit concert last summer, including The Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Sir Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Sir Mick Jagger and Bruce Springsteen.

The event raised 65 million dollars for the Robin Hood Foundation which benefited victims of the storm.

Harvey revealed the story about Kristen at a screening of a documentary about the concert, which was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival.
