Brad Pitt tried to pay a huge $120,000 to spend an hour with Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, it’s being reported.
The Fight Club actor was at Sean Penn’s annual relief event in Hollywood, when one of the items in the charity silent auction came up, which was watching an episode of Game of Thrones with Ms Clarke herself.
According to reports, Kit Harington, who plays John Snow in the HBO series was looking on and seemed ‘intent on getting in on the action if Brad ended up the highest bidder’.
Emilia watched on as the bidding started at a casual $20k but ‘quickly soared at the hands of Brad to $80k’, writes TMZ.
Harington had reportedly been in the bathroom when the bidding started and when he returned, Brad had put a bid in of $90k.
Kit apparently said he’d sit in for the viewing and so Brad then upped his bid again to $120k.
Yet it wasn’t to be, because an unknown bidder won the prize, for a staggering $160k.
According to the same reports, Harington got so drunk he was later thrown out of a bar in New York.

TMZ said 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 added:
Kit was not in his right mind and started banging on the table, grabbing at pool cues and getting in peoples’ faces.
