BURBANK, Calif., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A tissue used by cold-suffering U.S. film star Scarlett Johansson is being sold on eBay to raise money for charity, NBC announced.

Johansson blew her nose in the tissue while promoting her new movie "The Spirit" on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Wednesday.

Johansson explained she caught the cold from Samuel L. Jackson, her co-star in the film, and joked that the mild illness had special value since it was the convergence of two big stars.

The tissue was placed on eBay and all proceeds of the sale will benefit the charity of Johansson's choice, USA Harvest, NBC said.

As of 3:30 p.m. ET Thursday, 64 people had placed bids on the used tissue and the price was up to $2,151. The auction is to end Monday.
