Lots of love for Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio!
My heart will go on and on and on for these talented and generous stars!
According to WENN, Winslet and DiCaprio donated $30,000 to help the last remaining survivor from the doomed ship pay her nursing home fees.
Aw...that's super sweet!
But what about Celine Dion? I heard that she still have yet to donate money! What are you waiting for Miss Celine?
Here's the complete article to brighten your day
Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have proved their generosity is of Titanic proportions - after donating $30,000 (£20,000) to help the last remaining survivor from the doomed ship.
The pair, who starred as tragic lovers in the 1997 blockbuster, along with the movie's director James Cameron, handed over the cash to ensure 98-year-old Millvina Dean can pay her nursing home fees, reports Access Hollywood.
Dean was the ship's youngest passenger at nine months old when the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank en-route to New York in 1912. She is the ship's only living survivor.
Photographer Don Mullan made an appeal to help raise money for Dean in the Sunday edition of the Irish Independent newspaper, and also reached out to Winslet, DiCaprio and Cameron in a bid to raise awareness.
Mullan has already set up an exhibition to raise funds.
He explains to the publication, "I figured that if the edition sold out, it would secure Millvina for a full year. My plan, however, was to double the impact and thereby secure her for two years.
"I decided, therefore, at the opening of the exhibition, to publicly challenge James Cameron, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, 20th Century Fox and Celine to match me dollar for dollar."
According to reports, Mullan is still waiting to be contacted by Celine Dion, who won an Oscar for the movie's theme song My Heart Will Go On.

Remember the 1980 cult horror pic "Mother's Day" from Troma Films (I love all their cheesy, campy classics, by the way)? It's getting a remake makeover courtesy of our friends who brought us the "Saw" franchise!
So this one will be bloodier, more violent, more bone-crushing than the original!
Darren Lynn Bousman (he directed the second, third, and fourth "Saw" flicks) is set to helm. The story is about a ragtag of vicious, violent family, with a sadistic mother who instructs her sons to do all the killings. What a sweet momma
Brett Ratner's Rat Entertainment company is set to co-produce, and the director of the original film, Charles Kaufman will co-exec produce.
When can you see it? Mother's Day of 2010! Take your mother to see the film, or...maybe not...
Meanwhile, let's re-live the gory days of the original with this trailer!

Hammer Films, one of the U.K.'s oldest production companies, has been reinvigorated and they want their king, Christopher Lee!
The iconic actor, synonymous with Hammer Films, joins the cast of "Invasion of Privacy" alongside Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The film will mark Antti J. Jokinsen's directorial debut.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie details the story of a woman who, after separating from her husband, moves into a loft apartment in Brooklyn, New York and finds herself at the center of some unwanted attention.
Hhhmmmm, could it be that Mister Lee will play the one showering Swank some unwanted attention?
Meanwhile, let's take a look back at Lee's long, fruitful, and scare-licious relationship with Hammer Films. I remember watching all of these films when I was a kid, so yeah, I'm excited to see "Invasion of Privacy" when it comes out.
