Wannabe auctioneer Sharon Stone can whip up a pile of money for charity - even when she's a little intoxicated, as she proved at pal SIR Elton John's post-Oscars party in Hollywood last night (25FEB07). The actress, who has become famous for taking charge of celebrity auctions of late, took to the stage of the bash to help sell off prizes and raise cash for John's AIDS Foundation, but she admitted she was a little drunk. Slurring Stone told the celebrity revellers, "I've been sitting at my table with P Diddy and Jon Bon Jovi, and I'm a little messed up." But that didn't stop her from making a cash splash - at one point she managed to land two $250,000 (GBP128,200) bids for tickets to John's upcoming 60th birthday party. Stone helped the singer raise $4.2 million (GBP2.15 million) for charity at the party.
