Steven Spielberg outbid for Bono's artwork by wife Kate Capshaw

From WENN.com

The Jaws moviemaker and his partner Kate Capshaw attended the Irish premiere of his critically-acclaimed movie Lincoln on Sunday (20Jan13), and the event featured an all-star sale.

The U2 star offered up a set of etchings as a prize, and bidding was fierce for the pieces - until Capshaw trumped her husband with a bid of $57,452 (£36,229).

Spielberg had also donated a number of props from his new movie to the auction, and the event raised a total of $336,000 (£210,000) for Ireland's Wicklow Hospice Foundation.

Lincoln star Daniel Day-Lewis is a patron of the organisation, and he is delighted the sale generated such a large total for the cause.

The star tells RTE TEN, ""To raise some money for something like the hospice, that is a great thing.""
