Leonardo DiCaprio put his money where his mouth is at Saturday's GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.

Not only was The Great Gatsby star on hand to help honor top entertainment attorney Steve Warren, but he also donated a whopping $61,000 to the gay rights group.

During a pledge drive conducted by actor Wilson Cruz, DiCaprio went in for $25,000! Later in the evening during the live auction, he placed the winning bid of $22,000 for an African safari from Micato Safaris.

The four-night, five-day safari not only includes two round-trip business elite tickets from Delta but also accommodations at the posh Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti.

DiCaprio paid another $14,000 in the silent auction for a photo of Marilyn Monroe from L.A.'s Andrew Weiss gallery.

The GLAAD Awards which took place at the J.W. Marriott in downtown Los Angeles, also honored Bill Clinton as well as The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The New Normal, American Horror Story: Asylum, Raising Hope and Oprah Winfrey's Next Chapter for its episode about Neil Patrick Harris, his fiancé David Burtka and their 2-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper. E!'s Marc Malkin was a cochair of the gala.
