During the actor’s charity gala, held at the famous St. Tropez last Wednesday, many of the “Catch Me If You Can” star’s friends attended the event.

Through concerted efforts, DiCaprio and his friends were able to raise a whopping $45 million for the actor’s environmental foundation.

According to reports, a portion of the $45 million will be used to help victims of the Nice attack in France. Amounts will be donated to families of the victims.

The event was akin to the Oscar’s where you will see famous celebrities in a single location. Some of the famous Hollywood celebs who graced the event include Mariah Carey, Chris Rock, Tobey Maguire, Robert De Niro, Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson and Kevin Spacey.

Guests would have been overwhelmed by the star-studded event might have rushed into getting their smartphone’s out to have their selfies taken with the stars.

In one post made by Chris Rock, he and Mariah Carey were together, to which Rock included the caption “new couple alert.” Of course, it was all a joke as everyone knew that Carey is about to marry James Packer, the billionaire, who also happened to be at the event.

The St. Tropez event wouldn’t be complete without a good relaxing entertainment from famous artists. Andrea Bocelli, Lana del Rey and The Weeknd all entertained DiCaprio’s guests with world-class performances.

Some items that were auctioned off included the Rolex watch of DiCaprio and a diamond cufflinks pair which he used when he got the Oscar’s award for “The Revenant.”
