Salma Hayek's husband François-Henri Pinault and his family have pledged to donate approximately $113 million to the rebuilding of the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral after the devastating fire.

"My father [François Pinault] and I have decided to release as of now from the funds of Artemis a sum of 100 million euros to participate in the effort that will be necessary for the complete reconstruction of Notre Dame," François-Henri said in a statement, according to French journalist William Plummer.

Salma, who played Esmeralda in Disney’s 1997 film "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," quickly reacted to the cathedral’s destruction :

"As many others I’m in deep shock and sadness to witness the beauty of Notre-Dame turn into smoke. I love you Paris," Hayek said on Instagram, posting an image of the cathedral ablaze.

But the Pinaults weren't the only billionaires who decided to help.

The AP reported that Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH, said his company will donate about $226 million and Apple, one of the world's richest and most valuable companies, has also pledged its support.
