Winter is officially here for Brad Pitt.
Pitt offered to pay $120,000 to watch an episode of “Game of Thrones” with Emilia Clarke — but he was outbid.
Pitt bid six figures to watch a “Game of Thrones” episode with Clarke on Saturday night during a silent auction at Sean Penn’s annual gala for Haiti, held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California.
During the charity gala, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode with Clarke, who was in attendance at the A-list event, along with her “Game of Thrones” co-star Kit Harington, though the cast members were seated at separate tables.
The auction to watch the episode with Clarke started at $20,000, but the race quickly escalated. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out “Is the King of the North here?!” But as it turned out, Harington had stepped out of the gala to go to the restroom.
Meanwhile, Pitt bid $80,000 to watch an episode of “GOT” with Clarke. Then he outbid himself to $90,000. When Harington came back into the room, the actor offered to also sit in on the episode viewing. And that’s when Pitt raised his own bid to $120,000.
In the end, Pitt was outbid by a gala-goer who ended the auction at $160,000.

The charity event to benefit the J/P HRO & Disaster Relief Organizations was hosted by Penn, CAA’s Bryan Lourd and Sean and Alexandra Parker. Also in attendance were Lena Dunham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel, Connie Britton, Patricia Arquette, Mark Burnett and Leonardo DiCaprio, who was honored for his work combating climate change.
“The biggest challenge now is to make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake,” DiCaprio said of the dangers of climate change during his speech onstage at the gala. Referring to President Donald Trump, DiCaprio continued, “But how can we do this when we have a president who, just this week, proposed a massive increase in offshore drilling?” Garnering laughter from the room, DiCaprio quipped, “Their denial of so much of the scientific proof and evidence belongs in ‘the Earth is flat’ chapter of human history.”
During his speech, DiCaprio applauded Penn for being a role model with his philanthropic work with Haiti. By the midway point of the gala, more than $3 million had been raised to support the efforts in Haiti, though the fundraising continued throughout the night toward what will amount to a larger number in the millions.
“These are obviously incredibly turbulent and scary times,” DiCaprio said during his speech. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that has.”
Later during the auction, DiCaprio bid $80,000 on a painting by artist Josh Smith, but was outbid by Clarke herself for $90,000 — but, there was a second Smith painting available, so in the end, both DiCaprio and Clarke ended up walking away with artwork.
So Emilia outbid Leonardo DiCaprio and bought a painting at 90k and then Brad Pitt bid 120k to watch an episode with her but was outbid for someone who offered 160k… she costs more than art AND helped raise 250k for charity.
Can we declare this as Emilia Clarke week please? ? pic.twitter.com/I20wGF3rsJ

Kit Harington Kicked Out Of Bar For Being Drunk And Aggressive
Kit Harington aka Jon Snow was Game of Thrown out of a New York bar on Friday night for causing a ruckus worthy of Westeros.
The King in the North actor and star of BBC drama Gunpowder apparently caused explosive scenes in New York City venue Barfly, approaching a pool table and being a general nuisance around him after a few too many drinks.
In footage obtained by TMZ Kit can be seen wobbling on his ankles and getting on the nerves of customers of the bar in a style reminiscent of Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Pirates of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow.
TMZ said that an eye witness told them ‘Kit was asked to leave and did, but came back and finally had to be physically removed … dragged out of the bar.’
The celebrity gossip site said:
Kit was not in his right mind, and started banging on the table, grabbing at pool cues, and getting in peoples’ faces.
It appears Kit’s celebrity status afforded him some decency from the venue staff who appear to treat the actor with more patience they’d give the average bloke on the street after one sherry too many, but as a big name in the big city he falls to the mercy of a sharp-fingered member of the public who has captured the incident and shared it with the media.
Which we’re now writing about. To the old gods and the new, you really can’t win, can you.
It’s not exactly how we were planning on seeing Kit on our screens after HBO announced we will have to wait until 2019 for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.
