LOS ANGELES (RushPRnews)12/08/08-How much does a date with Anne Hathaway cost? Oh, about $12,000, give or take. That’s the price three fans paid for drinks with the Rachel Getting Married actress at the Cracked X-mas Fundraiser in Los Angeles Sunday night.
“I’m not usually very forward, but I thought if there was ever a crowd for me to do something like this, this is my crowd so I would like to auction myself off,” Hathaway announced, “for drinks somewhere fabulous and basically get you totally s— faced. Tell me what I’m worth.”
The proceeds for the night went to benefit the Trevor Project, a crisis helpline for LGBT youth. Hathaway, 26, was embarrassed when her price kept going up. “I’m blushing,” Hathaway said during the bidding process. “Wow, I feel really good right now.”
The actress returned to the stage later to present Sigourney Weaver with an award. “God you’re sexy!” Hathaway said after watching a highlights reel of Weaver’s career.
Also in attendance was newly out Wanda Sykes, who performed stand up for the crowd.
“Come on, it ain’t like you never seen a black lesbian before!” she said as she walked on stage, then launched into a 12-minute routine about everything from gay marriage to the Obamas.
“This is the first time the First Lady can drop it like it’s hot!”
