DiCaprio and De Niro join forces to fight COVID-19
Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro have started the #AllInChallenge, which aims to rally fellow Hollywood A-listers to raise money to fight the coronavirus.
Both actors are set to star in 'Killers of the Flower Moon' – one of next year's most hotly anticipated movies – directed by Martin Scorsese. They are offering one lucky donator the chance to be in the film.
"If you ever wondered what it was like to be able to work with the great Martin Scorsese, this is your chance," said DiCaprio in an Instagram video Wednesday.
The randomly selected winner will also have lunch with the stars and the director, as well as attend the premiere.
The initiative is part of the #AllInChallenge, which sees celebrities and sports stars auction or donate a 'once-in-a-lifetime fan experience," and challenge their famous mates to do the same.
Opportunities include having Justin Bieber fly to your house for a private show, watch the Los Angeles Lakers with Magic Johnson, or play golf with Rob Lowe.
So far, the charity has collected US$4 million, but the organizers hope to get past the US$100 million marks.
DiCaprio challenged Ellen DeGeneres, who responded with the chance to co-host her chat show. She nominated Matthew McConaughey, who invited a donor to join him in his private box to watch an American football game in Texas.
