Meanwhile, Pitt bid $80,000 to watch an episode of "GOT" with Clarke. However, his bid was unsuccessful. When another "Game of Thrones" star, Kit Harington - who had been seated at a separate table to Emilia - returned to the room after a bathroom break, he also offered to sit in on the episode viewing, prompting the 54-year-old actor to again raise his bid to $120,000.
During the silent auction at fellow actor and philanthropist Sean Penn's annual gala for Haiti in Los Angeles, Pitt offered to pay the steep six-figure price to watch the show with Emilia Clarke, who was also in attendance at the star-studded event, Variety reports.
The auction to watch the episode with Clarke started at $20,000, but the race quickly escalated. However, Harrington had just stepped out to use the washroom.
Brad Pitt must be a very big Game of Thrones fanboy, or more specifically the Mother of Dragons.
The bidding started at U.S. $20,000 but quickly rose and hit the $120,000 mark when Harington said he would also sit in on the episode with the victor. The network recently confirmed that Season 8 of the HBO series will arrive next year. The acclaimed actor scored a consolation National Basketball Association weekend experience with the San Antonio Spurs, which included a flight with the team, tickets to a game, and VIP seats for a team practice, and all for just $40,000.
Clarke also picked up a prize at the auction after engaging in a little bidding war with DiCaprio over the same Josh Smith painting.
