However, his bid was unsuccessful.
The "Moneyball" actor had bid for the episode viewing with the show's star during a silent auction at Sean Penn's annual gala for Haiti, at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California, on January 6 but ultimately lost out to a higher offer.
Other celebrities who attended Saturday night's festivities included the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Susan Sarandon, Lena Dunham, Kit Harrington, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tobey Maguire. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out "Is the King of the North here?!" The bid started at USD20,000 (RM79,750) and Pitt's fanboy instincts led him straight in with a USD80,000 (RM319,000) offer and then increased his bid to USD90,000 (RM358,875).
The bidding started at USA $20,000 but quickly rose and hit the $120,000 mark when Harington said he would also sit in on the episode with the victor. And that's when Pitt raised his own bid to $120,000.
It's no surprise that nearly everyone on the planet is obsessed with Game of Thrones, but that doesn't mean it's not still interesting to discover just how into it some of our favourite celebrities are, and how far they are willing to go to get up close and personal with the cast. The acclaimed actor scored a consolation National Basketball Association weekend experience with the San Antonio Spurs, which included a flight with the team, tickets to a game, and VIP seats for a team practice, and all for just $40,000.
