Washington D.C., Aug. 21 (ANI): After Leonardo DiCaprio bowed out of hosting a fundraiser for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, his buddy Justin Timberlake took his place.

As per reports, " Leonardo DiCaprio was scheduled to host a fundraiser with Hillary Clinton at his home in L.A. Unfortunately, Leo is stuck in New York until Wednesday to finish his current project," reports The People magazine.

"Not wanting to leave Hillary hanging, Leo called his friends Justin and Jessica Biel and asked if they would host for him. They immediately agreed to fill in as hosts and moved the event to their home for Tuesday," the report further read.

The 41-year-old 'The Great Gatsby' star is presently producing a documentary 'Before the Flood'.

The film that is most likely to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9 focuses on the effects of climate change on endangered species, ecosystems and native communities.

It will feature President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Pope Francis. (ANI)
