Brad Pitt Bids Big Money To Watch Game Of Thrones With Show's Star

Brad Pitt put up some big money for the chance to view a Game of Thrones episode with Emilia Clarke at a charity auction last Saturday.

January 6th was the 7th Annual Sean Penn & Friends Haiti Rising Gala benefiting J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Which is quite a mouthful so we’ll shorten it to Sean Penn’s annual celebrity charity to help Haiti, a country always in need of some help, whether it be from natural disaster, poor governance, or global warming.

Even though the topic is certainly serious, the charity tends to be a gathering of Hollywood’s elite for a night of fun at a silent auction. All the big names were there, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well one of the biggest names of all: Brad Pitt.

One of the items up for grabs at the silent auction was watching a Game of Thrones episode with actress Emilia Clarke - and just in case you’re a heathen and don’t actually read the end credits of each episode, she plays Daenerys Targaryen in the show.

Pitt was either drunk or not paying attention since even though he held the top bid for a time he then outbid himself and brought it up to $90,000. Then Kit Harrington, the actor who plays Jon Snow, came back from the bathroom and cajoled Pitt into upping his bid to $120,000.

“Just because it’s Brad Pitt doesn’t mean that you can’t bid against him,” shouted the auctioneer, which then brought the bidding north of $150,000 and beyond Pitt’s reach. Well, probably not his reach, but certainly his desire as that’s when he stopped bidding. The prize ultimately went to a husband and wife who were way more into Game of Thrones for $160,000.

All in all, the night raised $4 million for Haiti.
