Brad Pitt Just Bid $150k To Watch GoT With Khaleesi
Brad Pitt loves his children, loves acting, and as we’ve come to learn today - LOVES Game of Thrones.
Further to that, he loves experiences, much like a typical Aussie to a beer-tasting Red Balloon experience, Pitt is keen on experiences that are out of the ordinary.
Take his weekend purchase for example.
The actor bid a cool $150,000 to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington during Sean Penn’s annual gala for Haiti in LA on the weekend.
Pitt first bid $US80,000 ($A101,000) to watch an episode of the hit show with its star Emila Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, or Khaleesi.
Kit Harrington was also there, and when he said he’d also watch the episode with them, the bidding intensified.
Pitt upped his bid to $120,000 ($A152,000) but lost out to another attendee who ended up paying $160,000 ($A203,000) for the experience. He didn’t go home empty-handed, though.
He paid $US40,000 ($A50,000) for an exclusive experience with NBA team, the San Antonio Spurs.
The annual event was also attended by other Hollywood heavyweights, including Susan Sarandon, Tobey Maguire, Patricia Arquette, Lena Dunham and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Leonardo DiCaprio was the guest of honour at the $US15,000-a-plate ($19,000) dinner which raised more than $3.5 million ($A4.4 million) for Penn’s Haitian Relief Organisation and its non-profit partners.
He was recognised for 20 years of supporting environmental causes through his namesake foundation.
