Kit Harington's wild weekend: Bar fracas, Brad Pitt schmoozing, Golden Globes

Kit Harington's wild weekend: Bar fracas, Brad Pitt schmoozing, Golden Globes

Last week Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt bid a cool $120,000 for the chance to watch HBO hit Game of Thrones with the TV superstar and Kit Harrington.

The Game of Thrones star was joined by his co-star Emilia Clarke at Sean Penn's charity gala raising money for Haiti, the day after the fracas that saw him ejected from a boozer over a fight over a pool table. 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).

Brad Pitt is a huge Game of Thrones fan.

Emilia Clarke's "Game of Thrones" co-star Kit Harington said he'd watch the show with the victor as well.

It comes after the Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 for failing to test quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 10. Newton took a shot to the head area from Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata midway through the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately for Brad, he was outbid by someone else for $180K United States dollars when Kit Harington was then added to the prize.

Pitt was outbid by another gala-goer who ended the auction at $160,000.

So does the 54-year-old actor have a thing for the 31-year-old Clarke?

Kit, who plays Jon Snow in the fantasy show, was with his Game of Thrones co-star and onscreen lover Emilia, who is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Lena Dunham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel, Connie Britton, Patricia Arquette, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Leonardo DiCaprio, who was honored for his work fighting climate change, were also at the event. 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.
