Twenty years since it first came to the big screen, the epic romance-disaster film “Titanic” remains as one of the most iconic movies ever made.

The biggest stars of the Oscar-winning film recently held a mini-reunion, with the trio of Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Billy Zane appearing for an annual charity auction in the town of Saint-Tropez, located at the southeastern region of France.

Zane captured the rare moment on Instagram and joked about how the gang is now “saving the icebergs,” 20 years removed from the events of the film.

“Gangs back together. Now we’re saving icebergs. Go figure,” he captioned the photo on Instagram, referring to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gala’s cause of raising money for environmental projects.

The foundation hosts a star-studded gala every summer which rewards auctioneers a chance to win dinner dates with their favorite stars, according to the London Evening Standard.

This year, two lucky individuals won a private dinner with DiCaprio and Winslet at a New York restaurant in October, with the proceeds going to Winslet’s GoFundMe campaign for young mothers with cancer.

In 2016, the gala raised an impressive $45 million for various environmental charities and a total of $80 million since its inception in 2010. Khristian Ibarrola/JB
