Brad Pitt has wracked up his fair share of wonga over the years, but he was still outbid in his quest to watch Game of Thrones with Kit Harrington and Emila Clarke.
Bidding at Sean Penn's Haitian relief charity dinner gala in Milk Studios, Los Angeles last Saturday, the beautiful thespian was engaged in a rather amusing bidding war with an unnamed bidder as fellow A-listers watched on with sheer amusement.
Speaking to People, an onlooker revealed, “During the first auction, Brad was on his phone. When the auction announced Emilia Clarke, they called her out in the crowd and Brad literally turned his whole neck to find and look at her and enthusiastically clap. He offered $80,000 in the auction to watch Game of Thrones with Emilia.”
Sharing the dreams of many GOTH obsessives, the eligible bachelor was visibly delighted at the prospect of watching the show with Clarke, who rose to fame playing the dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the hit show.
However, it soon transpired that Pitt wasn't willing to pay over the odds for the experience. “Emilia was covering her mouth and giggling. Leo [DiCaprio] enthusiastically watched the whole auction, turning his head back and forth between Brad and Emilia,” the onlooker added. “[Pitt] later offered $120,000 and raised his arms in excitement but was out at 150,000. He laughed hysterically when he gave up and they called him out for it.”
No doubt a tad annoyed that she wouldn't be watching the show with the dreamboat, Clarke can at least sleep easy at the prospect Pitt was willing to part with $150,000 to spend time with her.
