Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story included a reported $10 million in aid. A source close to DiCaprio has since denied the veracity of that claim to The AP. His grandmother did also not have ties to Ukraine.

Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly donated money to help people in Ukraine.

The good people of Ukraine are currently fighting like hell to beat back a Russian invasion, and both sides appear to have taken heavy losses. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Now, DiCaprio has reportedly stepped up to help.

According to The Associated Press, the Hollywood superstar has donated an unknown amount to CARE, International Rescue Committee, the United Nation’s High Commissioner for Refugees and Save the Children to help those struggling in Ukraine.

The Daily Mail previously reported that the Polish News reported that he donated $10 million and that his grandmother had roots in Ukraine. Neither is believed to be true, according to the AP.

There are a lot of people who like to talk about standing with Ukraine or any other cause. Very few people actually step up and do anything.

DiCaprio is actually doing something to help.

There are a lot of innocent people suffering ever since Putin decided to cross the border and invade Ukraine with his military forces.

It’s a brutal and horrifying situation, and DiCaprio is reportedly doing what he can to help. At the very least, he deserves to be applauded.
