“Titanic” actor Leonardo DiCaprio is set to host Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Los Angeles for a fundraiser later this month when Hillary make her next visit at the second largest city in the United States.

The event, which is scheduled on August 23 is priced at $33,400 per person and is billed as a “Conversation with Hillary”, according to a report in variety.com.

The first $2,700 will go to the Clinton campaign, and the remainder will go to the Democratic National Committee and state and local parties.

Sources said plans were in the works for the event to take place at DiCaprio’s home, but they were still being finalised.

This will be Clinton’s first visit to Los Angeles since the Democratic National Convention. Invites to a series of events began to go out in recent days.

DiCaprio attended a Clinton fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s home in New York in June.
