Brad Pitt was willing to throw down $120,000 to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with two of the show's stars, but in the end it wasn't enough. The film star was on the losing end of a bidding war that took place during Sean Penn's annual charity gala for Haiti in Los Angeles on Saturday night, Variety reports. Pitt was willing to go as high as $90,000 to watch an episode of the HBO show with Emilia Clarke, and then raised his bid to $120,000 when Clarke's co-star Kit Harington offered to join the viewing party. But the dream date was not to be, as another attendee topped the bidding at $160,000.

Pitt was also unsuccessful in his quest for a painting, getting outbid by Arnold Schwarzenegger by $10,000, WTOP reports. But that doesn't mean Pitt went home empty-handed from the $15,000-a-plate affair. In the end, he won himself an exclusive experience with the San Antonio Spurs for $40,000. Meanwhile, the gala's guest of honor, Leonardo DiCaprio, who was being celebrated for his environmental work, threw down $80,000 for a painting. At the end of the night, more than $3.5 million had been raised for the J/P Haitian Relief organization. (More Brad Pitt stories.)
