Robert Downey Jr.’s chewing gum, which he was famously seen chewing during his Hollywood Walk of Fame appearance last month, is currently going on a high-profile auction. An eBay user claimed on the platform that he possesses the very same chewing gum that the Iron Man actor chewed at the event. As per the eBay listing, Robert Downey Jr.’s chewing is currently up for a starting bid of $40,147.47, or approximately Rs. 32 lakhs. 

Furthermore, the listing adds that chewing gum can be verified via a DNA test. The highest bidder, as usual, will get to claim the infamous white chewing, which famously impressed upon the Gold star at Jon Favreau’s honouring. The eBay user explained that he was in the area when the Due Date star was in attendance at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was able to take it. He adds that the chewing gum still retains the same condition it had when he received it. 

“During the event, Robert Downey Jr himself put his gum on the Star and presumably left it there, which I was able to snag,” said the eBay user in the listing. He added, “I’m selling it in the same condition I got it in and it can be tested for his DNA. Will be shipped with tracked shipping and contained in a plastic container.” The listing reportedly ended on April 1.
