The lucky winner will not only get the part as an extra but will meet the actors and the director, as well as attend the film’s world premiere.
DiCaprio and De Niro announced the news yesterday (April 15) in a joint video, with DiCaprio explaining that the money raised will “help make sure every family in need gets access to food at this critical time”.
