A bidder at the 2014 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala paid $1 million to go to the moon with none other than Leonardo DiCaprio.

The star-studded gala and event, held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France, raised a record-breaking $35 million+ to support AIDS research.

DiCaprio's The Quick and the Dead co-star Sharon Stone served as the auctioneer for the gale, highlighting items such as a 1967 Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe, a Picasso from 1968 and a special piece by Damien Hirst featuring a 10,000-year mammoth fossil in steel.

The bidder, who has not yet been revealed, joins the likes of Russian real estate mogul Vasily Klyukin, who paid $1.5 million last year for a trip with DiCaprio on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceshipTwo, which takes real people more than 76 miles about Earth's surface. The once-in-a-lifetime trip is slated to take place sometime in 2015.

The Wolf of Wall Street star, whose out-of-this-world adventure helped to raise money for amfAR, is known for his philanthropic efforts. The actor's Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation raised more than $38.8 million to fund global conservation.
