One million pounds for space flight with Leonardo DiCaprio

A TRIP into space with Leonardo DiCaprio has sold for almost one million pounds.

A seat beside the 'Great Gatsby' actor on Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space flight attracted the huge bid at amfAR's annual gala and auction at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Seats on similar flights - which Richard hopes will begin to launch from New Mexico by the end of 2013 - usually sell for £132,406 although a pair of tickets on Leonardo's shuttle sold for £1.19 million at the auction.

A bumper lot containing two tickets to the premiere and afterparty of Leonardo's 'Wolf on Wall Street' and an Oscar package including accommodation at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a Chopard watch, tickets to the Weinstein, Sir Elton John's and Vanity Fair's parties sold for £1.5 million, according to E! News.

Leonardo, 38, is currently partying in Cannes but was left disappointed this week when model Cara Delevingne rejected his invitation to attend a private celebration.

A source said: "Normally all Leo has to do is look at a girl and they fall at his feet. Though Cara was having none of it.

"He spent the night chasing after her and essentially she blew him out.

"They spoke and he was pretty forward inviting her to a party back at his suite. They swapped numbers but that was it."

The British beauty is said to have turned down Leonardo - who has previously dated models including Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli and Erin Heatherton - because she felt the 18-year age gap between them was too much.

The source added: "He tried every trick in the book and apparently kept lunging for her but she kept dodging them.

"Everyone is howling at the fact she actually knocked back the biggest actor in the world.

"She thought he was too forward and too old."
