Brad Pitt loses $160,000 bid to watch 'Game of Thrones' with Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington

Even when you're Brad Pitt, you can't have it all.

Pitt lost out on the chance to watch "Game of Thrones" with the show's biggest stars even after he bid US$120,000 (S$159,672).

Variety reports that the "War Machine" actor was at an annual silent auction in Los Angeles hosted by Sean Penn. Proceeds of the charity gala go to J/P HRO & Disaster Relief Organisations to aid Haiti.

It was announced that the chance to watch an episode of "Game of Thrones" with star Emilia Clarke was up for grabs. She and co-star Kit Harington were in attendance, though in separate tables.

Bids started at US$20,000 and immediately shot up. Pitt put in his bid at US$80,000 and placed US$90,000 to outbid himself.

When the auctioneer shouted, "Is the King of the North here?" Harington was in the restroom. When he returned, he said he was willing to be part of the episode viewing.

Pitt then bid US$120,000. Unfortunately, another attendee won with US$160,000.

Other personalities in the room were Leonardo DiCaprio, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel, Lena Dunham, producer Mark Burnett and Amazon chief Jeff Bezos.

DiCaprio bid US$80,000 on a painting by Josh Smith, which Clarke ended up taking home for US$90,000. DiCaprio eventually won another Smith painting.

Just halfway through the gala, US$3 million was raised.
