Just When You Thought You Didn't Like Kristen Stewart Much, She Does THIS.

If you're not a Twilight fan, it's difficult to really like Kristen Stewart. "Oh, Kristen Stewart is really really good in that cool drama," said nobody, ever. But for all the moody expressions and bad movies, it seems Stewart really does have the little people at heart.

According to the New York Times, big-shot producer Harvey Weinstein persuaded Stewart to do her bit for charity following Hurricane Sandy. You may remember Weinstein helped organize 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief and he was at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday (September 9, 2013) to screen the accompanying documentary.

The concert reportedly helped raise $50 million in storm relief money for those affection on the East Coast, though Twilight actress Stewart actually contributed a considerable chunk of that.

At the discussion  following the screening this week, Weinstein revealed how he had persuaded Stewart to accept an offer from an unnamed Prince, who said he'd donate a massive amount of cash to talk with the actress for 15 minutes. 

Stewart seemed open to the idea so Weinstein went to work on the Prince and negotiated $500,000 for just 15 minutes work. The money was delivered in advance and was locked up in Madison Square Garden by venue Chairman James Dolan.

"And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes," Weinstein said. Good money if you can get it.

Stewart is currently shooting Olivier Assayas's new movie Sils Maria, with Chloë Grace Moretz and Juliette Binoche.

Harvey Weinstein has several movies gunning for the major prizes during awards' season, most notably August: Osage County, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Lee Daniels' The Butler and Fruitvale Station.
