The date with Scarlett Johansson works out to cost 1,000 a minute
A Scarlett Johansson fan has paid 20,000 for a 20-minute date with the Hollywood actress in an online auction for charity Oxfam.

The star will be accompanied by the winning bidder at the world premiere of her new film He's Just Not That Into You in the US in July.

The UK-based bidder has not been identified, but goes by the nickname Bossnour on eBay.

An Oxfam spokesperson said the money raised to help poverty was "fantastic".

The fan will also have their hair and make-up done for the evening before being chauffeured to the event with a guest.

Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Anniston, Jennifer Connelly and Ben Affleck also star in the romantic comedy, which is based on the popular self-help book of the same title.

Make-over

The Oxfam spokesperson said: "To get 20,000 for a 20-minute date and a pair of tickets to help us fight poverty is fantastic.

"All of this money will be used to help us fight poverty in countries all over the world."

Meanwhile, Oxfam is offering a similar auction to meet actress Kristin Davis a the Sex and the City movie premiere in New York in May.

The winner will also get a make-over and a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes.

Davis said: "The great thing about this auction is that 100% proceeds will go directly to Oxfam, a charity that I love very much and I've travelled with a lot."
