  • Brad Pitt attends charity auction

The 54-year-old actor was among the A-listers who attended Sean Penn's annual "Steadying the Storm" gala for Haiti in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, Jan. 7.

Brad Pitt bid $120,000 at Sean Penn's charity gala to watch "Game of Thrones" with the show's star, Emilia Clarke, but was outbid.

Of course, the event was all for charity, with proceeds going towards the J/P HRO & Disaster Relief Organizations.

Later during the auction, DiCaprio bid $80,000 on a painting by artist Josh Smith but was outbid by Clarke for $90,000. Clarke was also among the gala's attendees but did not share a table with her Game of Thrones co-star Harrington. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out "Is the King of the North here?!" Harington was in the restroom. Later, Pitt raised his own bid to $120,000.


"He did everything he could to pirate episodes that hadn't even been shot yet", Lively revealed in a previous interview.

After all that, the actor was outbid by another attendee who offered $160,000.

Other celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Lean Dunham, Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Segel were also in attendance and by the end of the evening, an enormous $37 million was raised for the people of Haiti.

However, later during the auction, a second painting by the artist was put up for grabs, and this time around, the "Wolf of Wall Street" star was successful.
