Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Will Reunite to Auction Off a Dinner With Themselves for Charity
By Jackie Willis
Titanic fans may want to get out their checkbooks, because Rose has once again invited Jack to dinner.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are auctioning off a private dinner with the two of them and one lucky fan who can afford it at this year's auction gala put on by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. The event will take place in St. Tropez, France, on July 26, while the dinner of a lifetime with the Titanic and Revolutionary Road co-stars will occur in either October or November at a restaurant of the highest bidder's choosing in New York City.
Proceeds from the gala and auction go to DiCaprio's foundation, which offers grants to environmental causes. The dinner itself will also benefit a GoFundMe campaign that Winslet supports, which is helping a young mother in the U.K. pay for her cancer treatment.
Winslet and DiCaprio have been inspiring friendship goals ever since they starred in the 1997 blockbuster, and have supported one another during some big milestones in their careers. Just as DiCaprio was on hand when Winslet won both a Golden Globe and an Oscar in 2009, the 41-year-old actress was thrilled to watch her longtime friend win his first Academy Award last year for his role in The Revenant.
"The sense of good will behind Leo is the thing that's touching me the most," Winslet gushed to ET on the Oscars red carpet ahead of DiCaprio's big win. "I mean, literally, people in the street go, 'Hey Kate, you know it's Leo's year,' and I'm like, 'Hip, yeah! I think it really might be!'"
