Charlize Theron kissed a girl, Thursday night October 22. The kiss was really expensive, totaling at $140,000.

Both the kiss and the cash were part of a charity event held in San Francisco supporting the OneXOne Foundation, an organization committed to helping children in developing regions, to bring soccer fields and clean water to the children of South Africa by 2010, in time for the World Cup.

Charlize was on stage to auction off a prize that included a two-week trip to her native South Africa to watch soccer’s World Cup in summer 2010, a safari, and a meet-and-greet with Nelson Mandela.

The winning bidder, a woman, received an extra item for her $140,000 donation, a 7-second kiss with Theron, who had tossed in the offer of a kiss to increase bidding when the offers plateaued at $37,000.

“My boyfriend is not here tonight,” she joked during the auction.
