Adrien Brody - Adrien Brody Still Waiting To Take Tea With Gerard Butler After Auction Win

Oscar winner Adrien Brody is still waiting to take tea with Gerard Butler after winning the 'date' at a charity auction.
The Pianist star bid $15,000 (£9,400) for the odd item last year (Nov11) at a fundraiser to build a school in Haiti - and he's still waiting for a call from the 300 star.
Brody says, "I attended a charity function for Artists for Peace & Justice and one of the things they were auctioning off was tea with Gerry Butler, which I thought was really interesting, so I thought, 'Why not?' I had the winning bid and I've yet to have tea with Gerry Butler. He has not fulfilled his obligation... I paid thousands and thousands of dollars... It was, like, 15 grand."
Brody made sure he honoured his own auction item - he chatted to a fan over champagne minutes after she won the bidding: "We pull out a bottle of champagne and people bid. We got $17,000. I had champagne with that woman that night. She didn't realise it meant that night... Her husband, I don't think, really appreciated it. He had to cut the cheque too, which is really terrible."
