    No good deed goes unnoticed!

    Kristen Stewart raised a cool $500,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief when she met with a Middle Eastern prince for 15 minutes.

    That's right, folks, 15 minutes of her time cost a young royal half a million dollars.

    Harvey Weinstein spilled the details while promoting his latest project, a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert called 12.12.12, at the Toronto Film Festival Monday.

    While he didn't reveal the prince's identity, he did explain how the situation came about. Weinstein admitted that the he was approached by the prince's people to make a hefty donation, but that he had to do a little sweet talking to get the actress on board with the plan.

    K.Stew apparently asked how much the prince would pay for the meet and greet, to which he responded with the whopping donation amount.

    And just to be clear, Weinstein added that he paid in advance (in cash) before sitting down with the Twilight star.

    It looks like the brunette actress isn't the only one who raised funds for the natural disaster.

    Lady Gaga donated $1 million to the American Red Cross back in November 2012.

    "If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," she posted on her Little Monsters blog at the time. "New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."

    It was also revealed in July of this year that Jon Bon Jovi donated $1 million to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

    The 51-year-old singer joined New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the rocker's hometown of Sayreville over the summer to announce the donation, the money from which will go to assisting various nonprofits involved in home repairs and rebuilding projects in various communities.

    "This is bittersweet," he said of the donation. "It's heartbreaking to see our fellow New Jerseyans so affected by the ravages of Hurricane Sandy but we're happy to make the donation and offer real, substantial help to the residents of Sayreville and the nearby, low-lying communities as they rebuild their homes and lives."
