Kristen Stewart is surprisingly charitable

By Marie Blake,

Despite Kristen Stewart's grumpy expressions, the star gives back to charities often.

Recently, producer Harry Weinstein told the NY Times how Stewart received $500,000 from a Middle Eastern prince on the condition that he could speak to her. The money would go towards Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Stewart sat with the prince for 15 minutes in Madison Square Garden after receiving the money in advance, in cash.

Since the start of her career, Stewart has been donating her time and money to different charities, notes Yahoo! Omg.

In 2010's Welcome to the Riley's, Stewart plays a teenage prostitute given the chance to change her life. While researching the role, Stewart was inspired to help young sex workers and wants to open halfway houses for runaways of slave trade.

Stewart also donated autographed Keds and jewelry she wore to different organizations that fight child prostitution.

In an interview with Vogue in 2011, Stewart explained how the wealthy should keep giving.

"Anytime that I hear that somebody's really rich," Stewart said, "The first question is 'Do you do anything with it? Or do you, like, chill? You just sit on it?'"

Stewart may also be making anonymous donations, proving that her stern expressions and stature don't say anything about the size of her heart.
