The auction is closed, the bidding war has come to an end, and it is reported that Scarlett Johansson's used tissue has been sold for $5,300. Identity of the winning bidder is kept under wrap and the money will be donated to the hunger relief charity USA Harvest.
Scarlett's used tissue was put on auction on eBay on Wednesday, December 17, during her appearance on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to promote her new movie, "The Spirit". The auction ended at 21:35:00 PST Monday, December 22.
During the interview, Scarlett Johansson complained to have caught a cold from co-star Samuel L. Jackson. She, however, told talk show host Jay Leno that her illness had value because it had been passed down from one celebrity to another. That was the reason why she decided to auction a tissue, which Jay handed her, on eBay after blowing twice and depositing some lipstick.
Scarlett Johansson's "The Spirit," meanwhile, will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25. The action-adventure flick itself tells the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the SPIRIT to fight crime from the shadows of Central City.
