While promoting the upcoming Hurricaine Sandy benefit film "12.12.12" Harvey Weinstein let the world in on how he and Kristen Stewart raised a cool $500,000 for effort.

All she had to do was sit with an unnamed middle eastern Prince during the benefit.

Here's what happened, according to the NY Times:

“How much?” Ms. Stewart asked, according to Mr. Weinstein.

He checked with the prince, who proposed a figure, which Mr. Weinstein promptly raised to $500,000.

The money was delivered in advance, in cash, Mr. Weinstein said.

Mr. Dolan [James Dolan, the chairman of Madison Square Garden] locked it up in Madison Square Garden, he said. “And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes.”

Weinstein was at the Toronto Film Festival promoting the film of the benefit concert.
