Nobody loves Game of Thrones as much as Brad Pitt

You may think you're a Game of Thrones fan, but are you even on Brad Pitt's level? Probably not. Pitt was fully ready to throw down $120,000 to be able to watch an episode of the HBO series with its stars, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, until he got outbid by some even bigger fan.

This all happened during a star-studded silent auction held at Sean Penn's annual gala to raise money for charitable efforts in Haiti. Clarke originally offered up the chance to watch the episode with just her, but Harington, who was also at the event, agreed to make an appearance once bidding started to take off.

Bidding started at $20,000, but that amount reportedly grew quickly. Pitt entered the bidding at $80,000, then offered up $90,000. That's when Harington, who had been on a bathroom break, reentered the gala and offered to join the viewing party, causing Pitt to up his bid to $120,000.

Pitt didn't win, though — an unnamed participant in the auction put up $160,000, which means he or she will be enjoying the company of Clarke and Harington sometime during Game of Thrones' final season.

That's a pretty big sum of cash going to the J/P HRO and Disaster Relief Organizations, who benefit from Penn's yearly event. This year's guest list included Jeff Bezos, Lena Dunham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel, Connie Britton, Patricia Arquette, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Leonardo DiCaprio, who was honored for his work combating climate change worldwide. DiCaprio also got outbid during the auction — he offered $80,000 for a painting, but was actually outbid by Clarke, who took it home for $90,000.
