  • Kit Harington emerges with co-star Emilia Clarke after being kicked out of New York bar

Few people have had the honor of watching Game of Thrones with the Mother of Dragons herself - and despite his best efforts, Brad Pitt won't be joining their ranks just yet. Lena Dunham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel, Connie Britton, Patricia Arquette, Mark Burnett and Leonardo DiCaprio were also in attendance.

During the night's charity auction, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with Clarke, who plays the role of one of the show's main characters, Daenerys Targaryen.

The auction started at $20,000 but quickly jumped up as the bidding war heated up.


Clarke's co-star Kit Harington was present, but had stepped out to the restroom. According to Variety, at one point during the auction, the auctioneer also asked if the "King of the North" was in the room. The actor reportedly offered $80,000, before outbidding himself with $90,000. When he returned, he offered to join in on the viewing with Clarke and the victor, prompting Pitt to raise his own bid, once again, to $120,000. Pitt first bid $80,000, then upped his amount to $90,000, and when Clarke's costar Kit Harrington offered to join the viewing party, Pitt went to all the way to $120,000.

Pitt was out when the bid reached $150,000. There was a second Smith painting available and in the end both, DiCaprio and Clarke ended up walking away with artwork.
