Los Angeles - Leonardo DiCaprio spent $3m on champagne at his birthday party according to In Touch Weekly magazine.

The Wolf Of Wall Street actor celebrated his 38th birthday party last month at The Darby restaurant in New York and blew a huge amount on alcohol for his friends.

A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "He and his crew spent $3m on Armand de Brignac. They ordered 18 cases, then requested more bottles!''

While Leonardo may have spent the huge amount, his party which was attended by stars including Beyonce Knowles and her husband Jay-Z, Robert De Niro and Cameron Diaz, was in aid of a good cause.

Money raised for Hurricane Sandy victims

The charitable star used the occasion to raise money for the Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy by adding a fee to every bottle sold to be donated for charity.

Leonardo raised a total of $500 000 for American Red Cross, and all other donations went to charities supported by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

Guests, who also included Mark Ruffalo, Emma Watson, Chris Rock, and Miranda Kerr, were entertained by live performances from Django Reinhardt, Gary Clark Jr. and Eric Lewis.
