I think it was last week when I posted about Scarlett Johansson auctioning off a "date" with herself for the charity Oxfam. Now Oxfam is a great charity, but the "date" was only guaranteed to be a handwritten note from the actress. If you were lucky you might get a handshake for your date. Well some person named "bossnour" ponied up $40,000 for that note and handshake.
I'm glad the money is going to charity, but if he just wants her signature he probably could have got it off Ebay for about $100. In contrast, Colin Firth auctioned off himself for the night and the winning bidder only had to pay $8600, and Colin has promised to hang out with that person. Spending the evening with Colin Firth sounds a hell of a lot more fun than sitting around waiting for some PR hack to come find you and bring you the note Scarlett managed to scribble out in the limo on the way to the premiere. Hell, it might even be something the PR person just wrote themselves and had Scarlett sign.
I hope bossnour doesn't have any delusions of grandeur about what his "date" is going to entail and that he is going to get the chance to wine and dine Scarlett or even hang out in the VIP area at the after party.
On the other hand, I'm sure if he really has some fantasy about getting it on with Scarlett, I'm sure that Ashley Dupre would be willing to throw a wig on and pretend to be whoever the hell you want her to be for $40,000.
