Brad Pitt Bid $120000 to Watch 'Game of Thrones' With Emilia Clarke

Posted January 09, 2018

BRAD Pitt paid $120,000 to watch "Game of Thrones" (GoT) with Emilia Clarke - but was outbid. The event brought in $4 million for J/P Hatian Relief Organization and its nonprofit partner organizations, the Associated Press reports.

During the night's charity auction, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with Clarke, who plays the role of one of the show's main characters, Daenerys Targaryen.

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.

Meanwhile, Emilia outbid Leonardo DiCaprio - who was honoured at the gala for his work combating climate change - for a painting by Josh Smith, paying $90,000 to trump his $80,000 offering for the artwork.

Clarke's co-star Kit Harington was present, but had stepped out to the restroom. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out "Is the King of the North here?!"

Another gala attendee told Us Weekly that the 54-year-old was all laughs despite losing the chance to watch Game of Thrones with Clarke and Harrington. However, Pitt's bid proved to be unsuccessful after an unidentified individual outbid him to claim the prize for $160,000. When he returned, he said he was willing to be part of the episode viewing. DiCaprio eventually won another Smith painting.
