The superstar took time out from the Cannes Film Festival to help auction off 10 lavish gifts, including a gold-plated bottle of Dom Perignon champagne, a day with former president Bill Clinton, and a flight in a fighter jet. Lopez was joined by celebrities in the audience including Paris Hilton, Naomi Watts, Mick Jagger and Naomi Campbell.
Meanwhile, Mary J. Blige and Patti Smith provided the music and Russell Crowe helped lead the bids. During the show, actress Michelle Williams helped sell off the champagne bottle, which eventually fetched $80,000 , while each seat at the event cost $6,000.
And the stars' efforts paid off - The Cinema Against AIDS benefit raised $6.7 million in total.
