The "World War Z" star bid twice on a private "Game of Thrones" viewing party with the Queen of Dragons, Emilia Clarke - offering up to $120,000 at the Saturday night charity auction.

Pitt was ready to cough up six figures to watch an episode of the epic HBO series with Clarke.

Kit Harrington was also in attendance.
