The “Fate of the Furious” actress, Jackie Chan and Naomi Campbell attended amfAR’s charity auction in Hong Kong
Charlize Theron is no cheap date.
The South African actress auctioned off four tickets to her upcoming “The Fate of the Furious” premiere for $200,000 at amfAR’s charity gala in Hong Kong over the weekend. Theron, who stars as an evil genius in the first “Fast and Furious” installment to air since Paul Walker’s death, sweetened the deal by promising to do shots with the highest bidders at the film’s after party.
The Studio 54-themed dinner raised $3.6 million for AIDS-related research. The star-studded affair was attended by celebs like supermodel Naomi Campbell, actors Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh, celebrity DJ Mark Ronson and fashion designer Kenneth Cole, who chairs amfAR’s board. The most lucrative prize was a cameo role in Chan’s upcoming action movie with Sylvester Stallone—widely rumored to be the fourth installment of “The Expendables”—which went for $300,000.
Other big ticket items included an Andy Warhol print of Elizabeth Taylor ($130,000), a weeklong stay at Leonardo DiCaprio’s southern California retreat ($100,000) and most importantly, a Moët & Chandon vending machine containing 315 mini bottles of champagne ($80,000).
