Kristin Davis is more popular than Scarlett Johansson.
The 'Sex and the City' star auctioned off the chance to meet her at the world premiere of the film
version of the hit US TV show on eBay to raise money for money for charity Oxfam America.
The winning bid was a staggering $52,100, and easily surpassed the $42,000 Scarlett raised when she offered a similar experience earlier this month to meet her at the premiere of her latest movie 'He's Just Not That Into You'.
The winner of Kristin's auction, identified only as 'superiorlotus912', will be driven to the New York premiere on May 27 in a chauffeured car where they will meet the actress and receive a pair of Jimmy Choo 'Felix'-style shoes in their size.
Other celebrities who have auctioned off meet-and-greets to raise money for the international poverty relief agency include Colin Firth and Charlize Theron, while 'The Blood Diamond' star Djimon Hounsou is currently offering a fan the chance to accompany him to the press junket and premiere of his new film 'Push'.
Oxfam America is a Boston-based branch of Oxfam International. It offers development programmes and emergency relief services, and campaigns for change in global practices and policies that keep people in poverty.
