What Book Got Scarlett Johansson Hooked?

August 13th, 2008 by Diane N. ·

Sure, she’s an acclaimed actress and international movie star, but what we really want to know is what came before all that: what kept Scarlett Johansson up all night reading under the covers?

“One of the first books that ignited my passion for reading was The Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. My sister read it to me when I was 8 years old. Every night she would read me a new chapter. I loved it so much that I made her start all over again right after we completed it!”

Fellow fox lovers can look forward to the animated movie.  It’s set to release in November 2009, is voiced by (get ready) George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Anjelica Huston – and directed by The Fantastic Mr. Wes Anderson.

Scarlett on Jay Leno

Johansson tissue sells for $5,300

Scarlett Johansson's eBay listing

The tissue is being auctioned by US chat show Tonight with Jay Leno

A tissue used by Scarlett Johansson has been sold for $5,300 (£3,600) on auction website eBay.

The actress was appearing on US talk show Tonight when host Jay Leno handed her a tissue after the star said she had caught a cold.

Johansson blew her nose twice, leaving some lipstick and mucus behind, before putting it in a bag and signing it.

Proceeds from the sale are going to hunger charity USA Harvest, the charity of Scarlett Johansson’s choice.

The actress appeared on Tonight to promote her latest movie, The Spirit, in which she stars in alongside Samuel L Jackson.

Johansson told Leno she had caught a cold from him and thought her illness had more “value” as it had been passed from one celebrity to another.

It is not the first time the Lost In Translation star has used eBay to raise money for charity.

In March a fan paid £20,000, which went to Oxfam, for a 20-minute date with the Hollywood actress.

The Spirit will be released in UK cinemas on 1 January.
