Clooney sells his kiss for $350,000!

Perennial bachelor George Clooney's girlfriends must really be lucky, for they get for free what some women have to cough up 350,000 dollars for - a kiss.

Actress Sharon Stone put the actor, as well as his Ocean's Thirteen co-stars on the auction block recently to raise money for AIDS research. As the cast auctioned off a seven-day Mediterranean getaway on a private boat, Sharon announced that the highest bidder would win a kiss from the star of their choice. The winner was Clooney, whose kiss sold for 350,00 dollars.

"If you bid, one of these guys will come down and touch you. And you can choose which one," People quoted her, as saying. As the actor landed one on the girlfriend of the bidder, Clooney's co-star Ellen Barkin then quipped that she would pay 500,000 dollars for a kiss. He obliged and she paid up.

The auction, which also saw 300,000 dollars being shelved out by Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Eva Mendes, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell for two songs by Kylie Minogue, raised a record seven million dollars for the Foundation for AIDS Research.
