Bidder pays $1.5M for space trip with Leonardo DiCaprio

Washington, May 24: One fan of Leonardo DiCaprio has paid 1.5 million dollars for a trip into space with the actor, during a charity auction at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the winning bidder will get the chance to travel into space orbit on a Virgin Galactic spaceship in a seat next to DiCaprio, Us magazine reported.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go toward the AmFAR Cinema Against AIDS charity.

A second pair of seats was also auctioned off on Thursday for a whopping 2.3 million dollars.

Initially, the trip was listed in the auction booklet as a “once-in-a-lifetime trip to space with a mystery guest,” but Harvey Weinstein later revealed that the guest was DiCaprio himself. (ANI)
