Daniel Craig, Quantum of Solace

Sony Pictures

The ultimate Bond girl just got a license to kiss two of Britain's hottest stars.

The longtime producer of the 007 franchise, Barbara Broccoli, laid down a winning $38,000 bid at a London fund-raiser Tuesday for the chance to lock lips with current superspy Daniel Craig, big-screen bumbler extraordinaire Hugh Grant and Harry Potter half-giant Robbie Coltrane.

Well, ever since the casting couch was rendered illegal, the producers have to get their action from somewhere.

The smooches were auctioned off at the star-studded Great British Movie Event, proceeds from which went to the National Film and Television School.

In addition to puckering up, Craig also paid up, shelling out $36,000—after a heated bidding war with Grant, no less—for an uncorrected proof of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, published in the U.K. as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Grant struck out again later in the night when he was outbid over two walk-on parts in a Working Title film, a production company that frequently bankrolls his acting endeavors. Unfortunately, his $32,000 bid for the prize didn't quite cut it.

Meanwhile, Craig's golden touch was all over the event, as a tuxedo worn by the blond Bond also managed to bank some big ones for the charity, selling for $19,000.
