Actress Charlize Theron auctioned off a kiss to a lucky lady at a charity event for the low, low price of $140,000.

But wait. There's more.

In addition to the 20-second smooch-fest, the winning bidder got a South Africa travel package that included 2010 World Cup tickets, a safari and a meeting with Nelson Mandela, US Weekly reported.

The kiss was an impromptu addition to the travel package after bidding stalled at $37,000 at the Thursday night auction, US Weekly reported.

Earlier in the night, Jeremy Piven raised a whopping $280,000 for charity OneXOne. Theron was determined not to be outdone.

"For f*** sake. You can do better," Theron told the crowd. "There is no way I am leaving here with Jeremy Piven getting a higher bid. I've got t*** for God's sake."

The kiss offer started at 7 seconds for $130,000. Eventually, a woman upped the price to $140,000, and gala goers counted up to 20 as the two shared a kiss.

OneXOne was founded in 2005 by Diesel Canada President, Joelle Berdugo Adler, and has raised more than $7 million for children around the world since that time, according to the group's website.
