Story highlights

  • DiCaprio held star-studded charity event
  • Mariah Carey and Chris Rock among the guests

(CNN)Not surprisingly, Leonardo DiCaprio has some wealthy, famous friends. As it turns out, they're also generous.

DiCaprio and his pals raised $45 million for his environmental foundation at the actor's third-annual charity gala in St. Tropez on Wednesday night. DiCaprio will also donate a portion of the money raised to families of the victims and survivors of the terrorist attack in Nice, France last week.
    Mariah Carey and Chris Rock were in attendance. Rock posted a photo on Instagram captioned, "new couple alert." Clearly a joke considering Carey is engaged to billionaire James Packer, who was also at the party.

    In true DiCaprio fashion, the gala was also attended by a bevy of beauties. Model Doutzen Kroes shared a photo from the party with several long-legged friends in tow. But you can't player-hate on a man when he's partying with a purpose.
