How much would you pay for meal with ur fave star?
I was just reading this in my local Sydney Morning Herald, that a man who bid for lunch with Jessica Biel at a fundraiser paid $30,000 for the prize! That's alot of money for a meal with a major star!! How much would you have paid, if money was not a problem for you?

From SMH/ People magazine

An American man who bid $US30,000 ($40,000) to have lunch with actress Jessica Biel, Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive", sealed the deal on Friday.

The man, identified only as John, was dressed in a white suit with a blue shirt and striped tie when he lunched with the actress at Denver's Palm restaurant, said publicist Jeanne Lee.

Biel, a star on television's 7th Heaven, and the film Elizabethtown, agreed to have lunch with the highest bidder as part of a fundraiser for Molly Bloom, an 18-year-old woman who lost a leg in a May 13 accident.

The charity event dubbed "Mollypalooza" raised $US44,000 ($58,000) to help cover Bloom's medical expenses.

Though wishing to remain anonymous, "John" told reporters earlier he is a senior vice-president for an oil and gas company in Denver.

No-one is thinking about the awkward-ness of this scenario. First off, if they have to be paid ALOT to have lunch with you, than the whole time you guys are doing your thing you should be thinking about how they don't want to be with you, they're there becuase you paid them.

I wouldn't go. It just wouldn't feel right.

If money wasn't an issue why not make it 100 million.

No. Money has to be an issue. Me £200 tops. Any more than that is just grovelling. Plus depending on the star/actor/actress they quite rightly wouldn't want to be chowing down with a perfect stranger anyway. Generally you try to go out for a meal with people you know. They, in return, know you. Nothing worse than being in the company of those who are either a) obliged to be there or b) you don't give a toss about.

Whoever it was that paid $30 for a sit with Jessica Biel has either more money than hair or he needs his head testing. As this was for charity I have to believe it's the former option.

I think most stars would be too concerned about you ending up a Rupert Pupkin, so wouldn't do something like that even if they wanted to.

that's funny as hell cause i'm watching King Of Comedy!

I wouldn't pay at all except help paying the bid because I would only have lunch with them if I got to know them well

Money is always an issue.  Its always an issue.  However if I could pick one person to have a meal with  I would have to be "Kathy Griffin".  She is funny!  Besides I know she loves this one mexican food place and I love that place too.  

How much would I pay?  Well I would buy the dinner.
