Sexy Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson is auctioning herself off on eBay. The star is offering the highest bidder a chance to spend the evening with her at the premiere of one of her movies. Also included in the eBay package is two tickets to the premier of her upcoming summer flick He's Just Not That Into You which also stars Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Ben Affleck. The winner will receive a chauffeured car service to the premiere and their hair and makeup done by Prive. There will be two tickets to the world premiere of the movie in July in either Los Angeles or New York - and some one on one time with Johansson herself ... Proceeds will benefit Oxfam America, an international development and relief agency which delivers development programs and emergency relief services, and also campaigns for change in global practices and policies that keep people in poverty. The eBay listing states: "Scarlett Johansson is a passionate and committed advocate and fundraiser and has been involved with Oxfam since 2005. In 2007 she traveled to Sri Lanka and India to meet young girls who have a chance to go to school against great prejudice and poverty, and she also met families affected by the Tsunami on the coastline of southern Sri Lanka. Now you can take part in this special experience with Scarlett and support a great cause! The winning bidder will receive: Two tickets to the world premiere of He's Just Not That Into You. The premiere location has not yet been determined but will be in either Los Angeles or New York this July. Chauffeured car service to the premiere. Hair and makeup for one by Prive. A meet and greet with Scarlett Johansson at the premiere." The bidding is listed to end on March 12 2008 - and so far there have been a total of eight bids with the highest bid being $205.
Here is a short video of Scarlett explaining the auction in her own words:
At the time of posting, the highest bid is in at $16,200.00. Yeah, I think I'll take a pass and wait until someone more enticing goes on the auction block. I wonder if Ryan Reynolds will be available sometime soon. [Source, Source]
