Brad Pitt outbid on GoT screening

Brad Pitt outbid on GoT screening

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 bidding started at $20,000 and escalated quickly.

But what's even more impressive than that is the fact that he got outbid! Brad Pitt, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington all sitting in the living room with blankets and hot chocolates watching some good GOT... would have been incredible.

Other celebrities who attended Saturday night's festivities included the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Susan Sarandon, Lena Dunham, Kit Harrington, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tobey Maguire.

When the auctioneer shouted, "Is the King of the North here?" Pitt put in his bid at US$80,000 and placed US$90,000 to outbid himself.

Brad Pitt is serious about "Game of Thrones" fandom - at least when there's philanthropy involved.

"He offered $80,000 in the auction to watch Game of Thrones with Emilia", the source continued. At this point, Clarke's co-star Harington offered to join the viewing, at which point Pitt raised the stakes to $120,000.

Pitt was out when the bid reached $150,000.

Beyoncé was outed as a massive fan when Clarke stated that she could not take home her own character's dragon eggs because, apparently, rapper Jay-Z bought one for his wife.
