DiCaprio's Jeans

So how much would you pay to get into Leonardo DiCaprio's jeans?

In Japan, there is a mad Internet bidding war over a pair of denims signed by the movie star -- bidding has passed $30,000 and there's no end in sight. But this dickering over Leo's pants is all for a good cause. Money raised for DiCaprio's well-worn trousers, as well as jeans once owned by Sharon Stone, Antonio Banderas, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. So far, Leo is hands down the top bid-getter.

You might say the Japanese have a real yen for Leo.
