A Saudi prince paid half a million dollars to meet ‘Twilight’ actress Kristen Stewart for 15 minutes, according to media reports in the US.

The actress, who shot to fame playing the character Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ vampire movie franchise, agreed to meet the unnamed royal at Madison Square Garden in New York last December and in return he agreed to make a donation of $500,000 to a Hurricane Sandy charity fund, the New York Post reported.

The meeting was negotiated by movie studio boss Harvey Weinsten, who told reporters at the Toronto Film Festival he was approached by the Saudi prince eager to meet the 23-year-old star.
