(Newser) – Scarlett Johansson is proving that even Hollywood glamour-pusses can be gross. The actress thinks her flem would make a nice fan memento, so she’s auctioned off a used tissue to raise money for a hunger charity. Bidding on eBay has already topped $2,000, the New York Daily News reports. Johansson alerted the world to the auction on Leno, telling him that she caught a cold from co-star Samuel L. Jackson while filming The Spirit.
