(Newser) – Charlize Theron threw a smooch into the bargain to revive a flagging charity auction last night—and didn’t back down when a woman made the highest bid. The actress was selling a trip to South Africa, but bidding stalled at $37,000—after Jeremy Piven raised $280,000. Annoyed, she told the crowd, “There is no way I am leaving here with Jeremy Piven getting a higher bid. I've got tits for God's sake."

Theron also threw in a 7-second kiss for a minimum $130,000 bid. "Swine flu is going around. This is high risk kissing!" she joked. Men bid $130,000, then $135,000—before a woman topped them and pitched in $140,000 for OneXOne, US Weekly reports. The pair locked lips for 20 seconds as the audience counted down.
