AceShowbiz - Was Brad Pitt trying to score a date with Emilia Clarke? The 54-year-old actor recently attended Sean Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization gala where he bid twice on a private "Game of Thrones" viewing party with the Mother of Dragons herself, but sadly lost.
The "Moneyball" actor offered up to $120,000 at the charity auction held on Saturday night, January 6, which was also attended by Clarke, Leonardo DiCaprio and Arnold Schwarzenegger among others. Unfortunately for Pitt, an unidentified individual outbid him and put up $160,000 to watch "Game of Thrones" with Clarke and her co-star Kit Harington.
"During the first auction, Brad was on his phone. When the auction announced Emilia Clarke, they called her out in the crowd and Brad literally turned his whole neck to find and look at her and enthusiastically clap," a witness tells Us Weekly. "He offered $80,000 in the auction to watch 'Game of Thrones' with Emilia."
"Emilia was covering her mouth and giggling. Leo [DiCaprio] enthusiastically watched the whole auction, turning his head back and forth between Brad and Emilia," the onlooker adds. "[Pitt] later offered $120,000 and raised his arms in excitement but was out at 150,000. He laughed hysterically when he gave up and they called him out for it."
Pitt also lost out on another lot, a painting that Schwarzenegger won with $70,000. He, however, won a Hoop Dreams experience, which included an opportunity to travel with the San Antonio Spurs, attending two games and a practice, for $40,000.
Clarke, meanwhile, beat out DiCaprio on an abstract painting by Josh Smith. Her bid of $80,000 bested the Oscar-winning actor's. But it turned out there were two copies up for sale, and "The Revenant" actor snapped up the second one.
The fund-raiser which was held at the Milk Studio L.A. benefited Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization which helps relief efforts after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Other guests at the charity gala included Harington, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams and Tobey Maguire.
