20 Years After 'Titanic,' Leonardo DiCaprio And Kate Winslet Are Reuniting For A Good Cause

One lucky person will join them for dinner.

Leonardo DiCaprio are having dinner together nearly 20 years after Titanic premiered — and they're giving the highest bidder a chance to join them.

It's part of an annual auction hosted by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, the actor's charity dedicated to environmental causes. According to People, the star-studded gala takes place today in St. Tropez, France, and will also honor Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo for "making Paris a model for sustainable urban living and design." Last year's auction raised $45 million.


DiCaprio and Winslet, who remain good friends since Titanic and also starred together in 2008's Revolutionary Road, will welcome their dinner guest in October or November of this year at a place of the winner's choosing in New York City. And while you may not have the funds (or the plane ticket to France) to bid on it yourself, you can feel better knowing that all the money raised will go to good causes.

In addition to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation — which has awarded over $80 million in grants since 2010 to address issues such as ocean conservation, climate change, and indigenous rights — part of the proceeds will reportedly go to a GoFundMe campaign close to Winslet's heart. The fundraiser benefits a young mother in the U.K. named Gemma Nuttall who is fighting cancer.

"I have been in communication with Gemma and her lovely mum Helen, for a while now," reads a message from Winslet on the GoFundMe page. "And we are all so thrilled that we were able to send Gemma off to the Hallwang [a clinic in Germany] for her first round of treatment. I will continue to assist with her costs, but we do still badly need your donations."

It's not the first time DiCaprio has offered the chance to dine with him for charity. Last year, he was part of a campaign in which fans could donate to help Scotland's homeless while entering to win lunch with the Oscar winner. Winslet, meanwhile, co-founded the Golden Hat Foundation, which provides support to people with autism.

We're always happy to see these two reunite, and it's even better that they're doing it for charity.
