When a woman offered $40,000 to pay for Thanksgiving dinners for the homeless at a 2003 Hollywood charity event, the Basic Instinct star upped the ante by offering her lip service if the bid went up to a cool $50,000.

While raising money for GLAAD at the LGBT-rights group's media awards on March 24 in New York City, John Stamos and Glee costars Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera all smooched for a good cause – at $5,000 apiece – in a simultaneous three-couple liplock.
Supermodel Moss earned some cold hard cash for a London children's hospital in 2009 by auctioning off a kiss – while she wore a police uniform. After the smooch, the winner later remarked that Moss "tastes as good as she looks." No harassing the officer, sir!
