Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, 35, has joked that she still hasn’t forgiven her friend after they scuppered her opportunity to spend a night alone with Brad Pitt, 58. The actress spoke about the incident when she chatted to Vernon Kay on BBC Radio Two’s Breakfast Show on Friday.
Vernon quizzed Emilia on when she knew she had made it big following her role as Daenerys Targaryen.
The host then referred to when Brad Pitt bid hundreds of thousands of dollars at a charity silent auction to spend a night with her.
He teased: “When you have got Brad Pitt bidding over $100,000 to watch an episode of Game Of Thrones with you, I mean, that’s alright isn’t it.
Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke ‘never forgiven’ friend after incident with Brad Pitt
“I guess you would spend more time, I know I would, staring at him than the screen!”
Emilia chuckled: “I mean that was genuinely the most surreal moment of my entire life.
“I remember I was wearing a red outfit, and I was red head-to-toe.
“I think I stopped breathing, I didn’t know what was going on, I called everyone in my phone book.”
Vernon pressed: “Did he actually win? Apparently, a friend of yours outbid him?”
Emilia’s tone changed as she angrily quipped: “Yes! Cor, I’ve never forgiven him.”
The star previously spoke about the comical situation during a 2018 appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
She said that she was “petrified” that nobody would bid on her at the star-studded event so her friend offered to put his paddle up to save her any embarrassment.
Emilia told Graham: “The person whose table I was on is a friend and he was being very kind and put his paddle up… then someone else’s paddle went up across the room and then suddenly it was becoming quite a bit of money, it was absolutely mental.
