In addition to opening up a hell of a lot of closet space in the Disney house, the auctions will also benefit each company's charities, so it's warm and fuzzy all around. On the Disney side, proceeds will go into the coffers of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, while the Weinstein brothers will use the auction as a chance to kick off their new Max Family Foundation, named in honor of their father.
Among the items up for grabs (at eBay and Premiereprops.com) are one of Renée Zellweger's size -4 dresses from Chicago and Michael Meyer's mask from Halloween H20, as well as some bits from Spy Kids, Shakespeare in Love, and The Cider House Rules. Get clicking, kids. Just keep telling yourself it's for a good cause - that makes it ok to spend, spend, spend!
