Kevin Hart, Chris Young donate to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts
Kevin Hart and Chris Young have announced their plans to donate money to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts as they ask others to help pledge their support as well.

"I think we've participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, come meaningless, but we've all done them," Hart said in a video posted onto Instagram Sunday where he says he will donate $25,000 to the Red Cross.

The comedian also challenges his celebrity friends including Dwayne Johnson, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Harvey and Justin Timberlake to "follow his lead" and do the same.

"At this point I'm going to start a real challenge," he continues about his Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge.

Young, meanwhile, states in a video on Twitter that he is donating $100,000 to the Red Cross as part of a GoFundMe page he helped set up for those hit by Hurricane Harvey.

"In times like these, you turn to your friends to help those in need and that's exactly what I'm doing," the country star says in the clip. The GoFundMe campaign has so far raised an addiotnal $45,000.

Rapper Drake on Monday shared a photo of Texas on Instagram where said he would also be helping with relief efforts alongside his collaborator, Future the Prince.

"We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused," Drake wrote.

"I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible," he continued.

"I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way."

Outside of donations, Randy Quaid stated on Twitter that he would retweet anyone's address and location who needed help.

"Was born in Harris county TX, know it!If you need help, in danger, will RT your address and location," he wrote.

Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio quote 'Titanic' lines to each other
Kate Winslet says she and Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio still quote lines from the 1996 movie to each other.

The 41-year-old British actress discussed her longtime friendship with the 42-year-old American actor in an interview for the October issue of Glamour U.K.

"You don't even want to know the last conversation we had, because it was so funny and made me laugh so much. We found ourselves saying to each other, 'Can you imagine if the world really knew the stupid things we say?'" Winslet told the magazine.

"I'm not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we're very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny," she confessed.

Winslet and DiCaprio played ill-fated lovers Rose Bukater and Jack Dawson in Titanic, with Billy Zane as Rose's villainous fiancé, Cal Hockley. The trio reunited at DiCaprio's annual Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation dinner in July.

"Gangs back together. Now we're saving icebergs. Go figure," Zane joked of the event, which raised funds for environmental causes.

Winslet and DiCaprio also co-starred in the 2008 drama Revolutionary Road. The actress said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February 2016 that fan enthusiasm for their films has been "lovely."

"People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which, you know, at the end of the day, that's so lovely, isn't it?," she said. "It's been 20 years [since Titanic]."

"It's really quite endearing," the star added. "And we do laugh about it. We were giggling about it last night. People still get so overwhelmed with the Jack and Rose thing."

Winslet will next star in The Mountain Between Us with Idris Elba.
