“Titanic” co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are helping the last survivor of the real Titanic’s sinking.
You know, I just realized no one ever talks about a “Titanic” sequel. I wonder why …
Anyway, the New York Daily News reports the actors are supporting a fund that would pay Millvina Dean’s nursing home fees.
Dean was only two months old when the ocean liner sank in the North Atlantic on April 14, 1912.
She’s lived in a nursing home in the English city of Southampton since breaking her hip about three years ago, but apparently has struggled to pay her bills. She has sold several Titanic mementos to raise money.
DiCaprio and Winslet released a joint statement saying they hoped the 102-year-old could rest easier knowing her future was secure. The Millvina Fund was launched Monday in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
