Elkann on Thursday celebrated an auction prize by planting a kiss on auction host Uma Thurman. Her representative shares that the act was sheer opportunism, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Her representative said: "It is opportunism at it's worst. She wasn't complicit in it...It looks like she was happy to have it happen, but it was not consensual."
Elkann won the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show experience, which includes two tickets to the 2016 show as well as two tickets to the exclusive after party.
The actress attended the event, established to raise funds for the fight against AIDS, in Cannes in a floor-sweeping gown.
