"Je ne sais qui c'est, je ne lui ai jamais prêté beaucoup d'attention alors que ma fille donnerait n'importe quoi juste pour un sourire"

I've just received a translation from my Canadian's penpal :

"Je ne sais pas qui c'est, je ne l'ai jamais vu de ma vie mais ma fille donnerait n'importe quoi pour un sourire de lui"

To clap eyes on something/somebody = voir qch/qqun
Eyeteeth = les canines supérieures
To give one's eyeteeth for something = Etre prêt à donner n'importe quoi pour obtenir quelque chose

Thanks, chrisg, for your translation.
