Anne Hathaway & Aaron Sorkin Co-Host Fundraising Party For Barack Obama
"The Dark Knight Rises" star Anne Hathaway and "The Newsroom" creator Aaron Sorkin co-hosted a re-election fundraiser for President Barack Obama at filmmaker Harvey Weinstein's Westport, Connecticut, home on Monday night.
Weinstein recently compared Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney to films he made.
Weinstein said, "I spent the exact same amount on both movies. One movie was called 'The King's Speech.' It grossed $140 million, won a few Oscars including best picture, and did sensational based on its budget.
"The other picture was called 'Our Idiot Brother'... and it grossed $25 million. To me Romney is Our Idiot Brother, and Obama is The King's Speech. You can spend all the money in the world. If you've got a bad product, it doesn't matter."
Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood has publicly endorsed the Republican presidential nominee. Robert Duvall is also a Romney supporter. He is holding a campaign fundraiser for the presidential candidate in September at his Virginia home.
