Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows ever made, and there aren't many men who would pass up the opportunity to watch an episode with Khaleesi herself. Apparently, one of the men on that list is none other than legendary actor Brad Pitt, 54.

On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Emilia Clarke, 31, talked about how there was once an auction for charity in which one of the "experiences" included the chance to watch the show with Clarke.

"The person whose table I was on was a friend, and he was being very kind and put the paddle up and I was like, 'Thanks very much, that's very sweet. That'll be that,'" she said. "And then, someone else's paddle went up across the room…and suddenly it was sort of becoming a bit of money. And I was kind of thinking, 'Oh this is absolutely mental.' And someone went, 'It's Brad Pitt,' and I was like, 'LOL.' And I look over to the room and he's got his paddle up."

Sadly, Pitt was outbid by Clarke's friend, but she still described it as the best night of her life.

"I just kind of looked over with the most insane emoji heart eyes being like, 'This is just the greatest moment of my life.'"

Since Clarke, in the same show, casually dropped that she's single, and Pitt is still seemingly unattached following his acrimonious split from Angelina Jolie, the Internet now has a favorite potential Hollywood match (after Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o, of course).

You can watch Clarke tell the story herself, blushing like a schoolgirl, in the video below:
