The final bid at the silent auction at Sean Penn's annual gala for Haiti was United States dollars 160,000.

The identity of the victor bidder, who paid $160,000 to watch a Game of Thrones episode with Clarke, was not mentioned in the report. 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 last night, Variety reports.

The memo also protected states from federal prosecution under the controlled substance act. Still, the Justice Department, under President Barack Obama, took a hands-off approach.

During the charity gala, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode with Clarke, who was in attendance with her 'Game of Thrones' co-star Kit Harington.

According to Us Weekly, Pitt seemed bored at the beginning of the auction, but perked up when the chance to geek out with Clarke went up for bidding. Then, when Kit Harington came back from the toilet and offered to join in the popcorn party prize, Pitt upped the stakes to his final bid of $152,000 ($US120,000). And that's when Pitt raised his own bid to $120,000. Other times up for bid included a painting by abstract artist Josh Smith, which ended up being won by both Leonardo DiCaprio and Emilia Clarke.

Sydney set to swelter following hottest day in 80 years
Australia's largest city recorded its hottest day since 1939 as the mercury rose to 47.3C in the western suburb of Penrith. It was a relatively warm start to the day even at dawn as the mercury failed to dip below 22 in Sydney overnight.

That's a pretty big win for the J/P HRO & Disaster Relief Organisations, who were the beneficiaries of the auction, and who will put the millions raised at the auction towards the relief effort in Haiti.
