Daniel Craig, Hugh Grant and Robbie Coltrane raised £19,000 when a kiss with the threesome was sold at a charity auction on Tuesday night (17.06.08).
The James Bond actor, 'Bridget Jones' Diary' star and 'Harry Potter' actor all puckered up to kiss 'Casino Royale' producer Barbara Broccoli, who paid the staggering sum for the smooch.
Other items sold at the auction to raise money for The National Film and Television School included the dinner jacket worn by Daniel in the most recent Bond film 'Casino Royale', which sold for £9,500, and a signed proof of the J.K. Rowling's 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', which fetched £18,000.
Daniel and Hugh competed in a bidding war over a set of 'Harry Potter' memorabilia, which Daniel eventually won and paid £18,000 for.
Hugh was unlucky again when he put in a bid for two walk-on roles in a Working Title movie, but failed to match the winning £18,000 sum.
The evening - which was hosted by Jonathan Ross and also attended by Rowan Atkinson, Anne Robison, Richard Curtis and Lord Richard Attenborough - raised £400,000 for the school, double the £200,000 they expected to make.
