The Educated Man's Guide to Renting Scarlett Johansson

(Photo: eBay)

By S.T. VanAirsdale

I love charity, especially when objects of unspeakable male desire conscientious young ladies like Scarlett Johansson avail themselves as the top prize. And while the stakes fueling her new Oxfam fundraising jaunt -- a limo ride to the premiere of Johansson's upcoming He's Just Not That Into You, plus hair and makeup (?), two tickets to the screening and what promises to be a heavily guarded, Plexiglas-and-latex-glove meet-and-greet with the actress herself (plus something signed: a thank-you card? A restraining order?) -- are presently a little too rich for my blood, you might have the budget flexibility to want to play ball.

As such, Oxfam and eBay have outlined a few frequently asked questions to help you decide if this write-off is for you:

Q: Is Scarlett Johansson answering emails through this auction? A: Scarlett Johansson is not able to check emails sent to her through this auction.

Q: How long will the meet and greet last?
A: There is no set amount of time but it is estimated to be a brief visit due to Scarlett’s schedule that evening.

Q. Are travel and accommodations included?
A. Chauffeured car service to the premiere included. All other arrangements (including hotel, flight, additional ground transportation, etc.) are not included and are the responsibility of the winning bidder.

Bidding ends March 12 and is up to $12,100 as of this writing, which reliably narrows your competition field to Woody Allen, Josh Hartnett and Roger Friedman. You're on your own to deduce timing strategies and credit-limit upgrades. Best of luck!
