Titanic stars Leo, Kate and Billy reunited by icebergs
AN ICEBERG proved to be poor Leonardo DiCaprio’s undoing in 1997 film Titanic — but yesterday it was icebergs that brought Leo back together with two of his co-stars.
Kate Winslet and Billy Zane — who played Rose and her malevolent fiancé Cal opposite Leo’s Jack — both turned out for a charity gala event in aid of the Hollywood heartthrob’s environmental foundation.
And Billy couldn’t help seeing the irony, posting a picture on Instagram of the threesome, with a caption that read: ‘Gangs [sic] back together. Now we’re saving icebergs. Go figure.’
Kate and Billy weren’t Leo’s only guests, however. Madonna and Lenny Kravitz also helped boost the charity’s coffers by $30million (£23m) in a single night with their performances.
After hers, the Material Girl posted on Instagram: ‘Such an honor to be here supporting Leo’s foundation and doing what we can to save Planet Earth!’
Also in the audience were Madonna’s ex Sean Penn, Uma Thurman, Jared Leto, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Tobey Maguire, Edward Norton and Tom Hanks.
Leo spoke passionately about his foundation at the start of the night, saying: ‘The health of our planet is grave, this crisis is real.
‘What we seem to lose sight of is that we are part of nature, in fact we depend on nature for our very survival.’
The auction continues online, with bidding opening on August 10
