Actor Leonardo DiCaprio will host a charity fundraiser in St Tropez later this month.
The Wolf of Wall Street actor will stage the inaugural Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation St Tropez Gala on July 23 to support environmental causes, reports contactmusic.com. (Also read: Leonardo DiCaprio Denies Birthday Girl a Photo-Op?)
The event is set to be one of the “most glamorous, talked-about and exclusive events” of the summer.
An email asking people to buy tickets reportedly read, “By attending and supporting this event you will not only be part of what will without a doubt be the most glamorous, talked-about and exclusive event of the summer, but even more importantly, your support will go directly to saving the earth.”
The event will be held at the Domaine Bertaud Belieu rosé winery.
Leonardo DiCaprio suits up while speaking onstage during the second and the final day of the Our Ocean Conference on Tuesday (June 17) at the State Department in Washington, DC.
The 39-year-old actor was on hand to donate $7 million to ocean conservation. Watch the video below of him speaking at the conference!
“It’s the Wild West on the high seas,” Leo shared at the conference. “These last remaining underwater bio gems are being destroyed because there isn’t proper enforcement or sufficient cooperation among governments to protect them.”
A would-be astronaut has paid $1.1 million to sit alongside Leonardo DiCaprio on a trip to outer space.
The seat went up for grabs at the annual American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR) fundraising event – an auction, dinner and after-party that for many is the highlight of the Cannes Film Festival.
The once-in-a-lifetime trip on Richard Branson’s 2015 Virgin Galacic flight reportedly sold for £700,000 ($1.1 million). Leonardo auctioned off an identical flight at last year’s amFAR event for $1.7 million.
The charitable event, which takes place a stone’s throw away at the five-star Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes every year, raised a record $35 million for AIDS research.
Sharon Stone hosted the event which also included a 10,000-year-old wooly-mammoth skeleton coated in steel by Damien Hirst that sold for $17.5 million, a 1967 Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe that sold for $550,000 and a 1968 Picasso painting which fetched $600,000.
Leonardo DiCaprio gave a $1 million donation to help save elephants at the Sundown Gala in Malibu on Saturday.
The event benefited the Elephant Crisis Fund and was co-hosted by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation with Mark Wahlberg and the Wildlife Conservation Network.
Supporters included Pierce Brosnan, Cindy Crawford, Rory Kennedy, Behati Prinsloo, writer Erica Beeney and director Rupert Wyatt. Barbra Streisand was also spotted at the event, which raised over $2 million.
Leonardo DiCaprio has just closed on a $10 million apartment at the green Delos building in Greenwich Village.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” star has purchased a two-bedroom, 2 ¹/₂-bath apartment on the fourth floor of the building at 66 E. 11th St., under the corporation name of Malibu Colony PCH Property, LLC, sources tell Page Six.
The “WELL Certified” building includes amenities such as vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, a circulated aromatherapy air supply, posture-supportive heat reflexology flooring and “dawn simulation” provided by a circadian lighting design. Donna Karan’s Urban Zen is even providing a “wellness concierge to curate and coordinate your daily wellness experience.”
We’re told Leo — who owns a $100,000 Fisker Karma hybrid car — can even use a $1 million parking spot, the first at that price, which comes with another of the building’s units, an 8,000-square-foot duplex penthouse, until the apartment is sold. Broker Dolly Lenz and a spokesman for DiCaprio both declined to comment. Leo last month picked up an $8 million unit adjacent to a $4 million apartment he owns at the eco-friendly 2 River Terrace in Battery Park City.

Leonardo DiCaprio will star as a fur trapper who is left for dead in the wilderness of early 19th century North America in the period revenge thriller The Revenant, directed by the Oscar nominee Alejandro González Iñárritu, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film will be DiCaprio’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed but controversial Martin Scorsese black comedy The Wolf of Wall Street.
The Revenant, based on Michael Punke’s 2002 novel, The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge, has been a twinkle in Iñárritu’s eye since 2011, but has been in development for more than a decade in total. It now has a screenplay by the director and Mark L Smith, the writer of Vacany and The Hole.
Punke’s book is set in 1823 in the areas of North America that now make up North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska. It centres on 36-year-old Hugh Glass, a real-life figure, who joins the Rocky Mountain Fur Co on a journey into the wild. After being mauled by a bear, he is left at the mercy of two would-be rescuers who later steal his belongings and abandon him when their camp is attacked by Native American raiders. Glass must then travel the 350-mile journey back to civilisation through perilous territory. Iñárritu, who directed Amores Perros and Babel, plans a September shoot for the film adaptation, and is aiming for an autumn 2015 release date.
DiCaprio enjoyed critical acclaim for The Wolf of Wall Street. Scorsese’s highest-grossing film was nominated for five Oscars in January, including best actor for DiCaprio, best film and best director. But the film-makers emerged empty handed from the Dolby theatre in Los Angeles last month, a disappointment that some observers blamed on the controversies surrounding the film. DiCaprio was beaten to what would have been his first Oscar win by The Dallas Buyers Club’s Matthew McConaughey.
It’s an endlessly entertaining movie, but clearly a cautionary tale as well. It may not have brought home any Oscar gold a few weeks ago, but The Wolf of Wall Street is absolutely worth checking out when it arrives on Digital HD today (and on Blu-ray and DVD on March 25).
Parade is proud to premiere this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray release’s bonus material, which features director Martin Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio discussing just what made them want to tell Jordan Belfort’s infamous story while we’re treated to some great behind-the-scenes footage. It also does a fine job addressing some of the controversy about film’s morality that arose during its theatrical release.
