Winter is officially here for Brad Pitt.

Pitt offered to pay US$120,000 to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with Emilia Clarke - but he was outbid.

Pitt bid six figures to watch a Game of Thrones episode with Clarke on Saturday night during a silent auction at Sean Penn's annual gala for Haiti, held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California.

During the charity gala, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode with Clarke, who was in attendance at the A-list event, along with her Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington, though the cast members were seated at separate tables.

The auction to watch the episode with Clarke started at US$20,000, but the race quickly escalated. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out "Is the King of the North here?!" But as it turned out, Harington had stepped out of the gala to go to the restroom.

Meanwhile, Pitt bid US$80,000 to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with Clarke. Then he outbid himself to US$90,000. When Harington came back into the room, the actor offered to also sit in on the episode viewing. And that's when Pitt raised his own bid to US$120,000.

In the end, Pitt was outbid by a gala-goer who ended the auction at US$160,000.
