Colin Firth, one of the most sought after British Cine stars will auction himself for Oxfam America, a charity dedicated to ending poverty.

His fans can now bid on a chance to meet him at the Hollywood premiere of his new movie through an auction to raise money for Oxfam.

The winning bidder will receive two passes to the December 6 premiere of the Colin Firth starer ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ based on the best selling novel by John le Carre.
