Leonardo DiCaprio has a big date coming up, with an old married guy: Bill Clinton. The one-on-one get-together with the former president was auctioned off at a gala for Sean Penn's Haiti charity Saturday, and DiCaprio bid as much as $100,000 but was still outbid. So he proposed a team-up with his rival, turning the "date" into a double date for four people, StarPulse reports. He and an unknown woman ended up paying $200,000 each to win the day, OMG! reports. All in all, the bash raised $2.25 million for Penn's charity. (More Leonardo DiCaprio stories.)
