Determined Bidder Pays $1 Million for Trip to Moon with Leonardo DiCaprio

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Remember when you were in elementary school and you had to write an essay entitled: “If I Could Meet One Famous Person It Would Be….” – or some variation of the sort. Most of the selections were Martin Luther King Jr., the President of the United States, etc. Fast-forward twenty years and you’re rich – who would you pay a million dollars to go to the moon with?

According to reports, actor Leonardo DiCaprio offered himself (and a trip to the moon) to one lucky bidder at a star-studded gala and auction in Cannes, France. The event was held for amFAR, the International non-profit foundation that supports AIDS research. The event, hosted by Sharon Stone, raised $38 million for the foundation.

As for Leo, it was the second straight year he offered a trip to the moon to one lucky bidder. The winning big was $1 million, but the winner remained anonymous. Looks like Mr. DiCaprio is going to be awfully busy with trips to the moon shortly. Last year, the winning bid was $1.5 million.

As for the transportation, the Virgin Galactic private reusable space plane is still being tested. Right now, it can only make it 70,000 feet – only 168,000 feet short of the moon.
