Bidder Pays $40,000 for a Date With Scarlett Johansson

Posted on March 13, 2008

One lucky bidder won a dream date with actress Scarlett Johannson. The British winner bid in a charity auction which benefited Oxfam.
Scarlett Johansson's offer of a dream date with her has fetched nearly �20,000 at auction.

The chance to spend a night with the 23-year-old Hollywood beauty sparked a bidding frenzy among eager suitors on eBay. Bidding began at just 50p but soared upwards with 170 offers made in all. The highest bid was �19,680 and the lucky winner, who is from the UK, will now join the sexy blonde at the premiere of her film He's Just Not That Into You in Los Angeles or New York next July.

He will be ferried to the glittering event in a chauffeur-driven limousine and will join the star on the red carpet. He can take a friend along - but might prefer to keep Scarlett all to himself.
That's $39,972 at today's conversion rates. Still, he gets a date with Scarlett and that's not easy to come by. We're assuming they'll run some kind of background check to make sure he's not a serial killer or anything. Or at least provide her with a bodyguard/chaperone for the evening.
