Johansson's Tissue Wipes Up $5,300 At Auction
A tissue used by sniffling actress Scarlett Johansson has wiped up $5,300 (GBP3,580) at auction.
Johansson claimed she caught a cold from her The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson during an appearance on America's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday (17Dec08).
The valiant host handed the shameless actress a tissue, who gave it a good blow before joking the snotty cloth could have some value.
And Johansson proved she wasn't kidding when she put it on the auction block via eBay.com the next day, with proceeds benefiting food-gathering charity USA Harvest.
The online bidder who coughed up the sum will be announced on Leno's show on Tuesday (23Dec08).
