Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Rescue Last Titanic Survivor

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have teamed up for yet another project. But this particular one won’t be on the big screen.

Leo, Kate, and director James Cameron have made a considerable donation to 98-year-old Milvana Dean, the lone survivor of the real Titanic.

Dean’s nursing home bills have piled up so much that she’s resorted to selling her autograph to pay them off.

She was just nine weeks old when the ship crashed in 1912, and miraculously survived. Now she needs money for her care, and the stars felt compelled to help her.

Leo, Kate, and Cameron have contributed $30,000 to a fund for Dean to ensure she’d be financially secure for the rest of her life. How sweet is that?!

Leo is always one to put other people first, and this is a perfect example. They know that movie couldn’t have grossed $1 billion without the true story behind it!
