Update On The ScarJo Sale

Update On The ScarJo Sale

Oxfam is all about celeb date auctions. They just sold Scarlett Johansson.

You may have remembered that Scarlett Johansson put herself up for auction for Oxfam. In order to be successful, she only had to beat out Colin Firth’s $9,300. Which she did, by a margin of 4-to-1. Some British dude is paying $40,100 for an evening with ScarJo which includes: tickets to He’s Just Not That Into You, meet and greet with ScarJo, limo service to the premier, and hair and makeup. We’re relatively sure that it was not Woody Allen making the purchase, but who knows? It’s funny that an American bought the Colin Firth date and a Brit ScarJo. The grass is always greener on the other side of the pond.

The purchaser has bought a bevy of items this year including Pumas (the shoes, not the large cat) and a Corvette headlight. Check out The Superficial for a rundown of his purchases and a guess at his mystery item. It’s a very good guess.

Is this guy going to be incredibly disappointed when he doesn’t get any action out of this? Maybe he’s still holding out for second base. OMFG, what if it was Colin Firth? Do you think he'd have a chance to score? Yeah, probably not. Ryan Reynolds really has it all.
