    Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman have raised 7,000 dollars for charity—by auctioning off their sweaty stage vests on Broadway.

    After the pair were given a standing ovation for their performance in A Steady Rain at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Tuesday night, they offered to sell the vests off their backs for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.

    After receiving 3,000-dollar and 4,000-dollar offers, Daniel and Hugh decided to sign each of their vests and agreed to sell them to the two women bidders for 3,500 dollars each.

    At one point, a female audience member screamed “how much for the pants?”, to which Hugh responded: “By pants, we are talking about the trousers right?”

    After laughter from the audience, Hugh considered losing his trousers but came up with the agreement for the two vests instead to increase the amount raised to 7,000 dollars.

    The pair also offered to meet audience members backstage and pose for pictures if they stumped up 2,000 dollars.

    After the show, signed programmes were also on sale to punters for 60 dollars, as well as signed posters for 300 dollars.
