He is a huge fan of Game of Thrones and the leading lady of the series Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen.
And so much so that Brad Pitt pledged $120,000 (£88,400) to watch the HBO show alongside the actress when he attended the Sean Penn’s JP HRO Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The Fight Club actor, 54, sadly lost the bidding battle, which opened at $20,000 (£15,000), to an unknown attendee at the star-studded occasion.
Snatch star Brad showed his interest by offering up $80,000 (£59,000) before upping the stakes to $90,000 (£66,000).
The auctioneer reportedly shouted ‘Is the King of the North here?’ when GoT star Kit Harington returned from the toilet.
Famed for his role as Jon Snow, who becomes the on-screen lover of the Mother of Dragons in season seven, it is no surprise Kit put himself forward to join Emilia and the lucky winner in the private screening.
Unable to believe his luck, Brad put forward his largest sum $120,000 (£88,400) but the Hollywood actor still lost out in the bidding war.
The winner of the envy-inducing prize secured their victory by putting down an impressive $160,000 (£117,899)
Sean Penn’s JP HRO Gala was hosted for a whole host of stars in the showbiz circuit including the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It is an exciting time for the great and the good of the celebrity world, with the hottest events on the calendar fastly approaching.
The gala came after the revelation fans will have a long time to wait as Game of Thrones won’t return to the small screen until 2019.
It will come as a disappointment for followers after Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, had told Variety that production on Season 8 began in October, with producers hoping to air the show in the middle of 2018.
Pushing back GOT’s screen time will give author George R.R. Martin more time to release the next book in his hit A Song Of Ice And Fire series, The Winds Of Winter, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Season seven was the highest-rated yet, watched by 16,500,000 viewers including fans who watched the show as it aired and night-time streams.
