President Barack Obama thinks Anne Hathaway "was the best thing" in The Dark Knight Rises.
He spoke about the film during a campaign fundraiser at producer Harvey Weinstein's Connecticut home on Monday. The political leader said that Anne was "spectacular" in the film.
"I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That's just my personal opinion," he said.
Anne, who laughed at Obama's flattery, was in attendance as one of the evening's co-hosts, along with Joanne Woodward, Aaron Sorkin and Weinstein. Also at the $35,800-per-plate dinner was Jerry Springer and American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Morgan Freeman has donated $1 million to Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
The Dark Knight Rises actor joins the likes of Bill Maher and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffery Katzenberg in delivering millions of dollars to the operation, and Morgan has praised the Democrat president's history of working on "tolerance."
"He ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the health care of every American. He has led our nation to be more tolerant and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court. In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources. I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him. Priorities USA Action is doing a great job of protecting the values I believe in. I am happy to help them and I hope others will join me."
Brad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt has "Christian" views on abortion and gay marriage.
The showbiz matriarch - whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood - has written a letter to her local newspaper the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a "family man with high morals."
She also hits out at President Barack Obama because he supports the "killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."
"I am ... a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," she wrote.
Gwen Stefani is to host a fundraiser with Michelle Obama.
The No Doubt singer will stage a "Family Day" with the First Lady at Gwen's Beverly Hills home on August 12 and a family of four can join the party for $1,000. A $5,000 donation gets the family extra time with Gwen and Michelle, wife of President Barack Obama. It is not known whether Gwen's sons, Kingston, six, and three-year-old Zuma, or Michelle's daughters, Malia, 14, and 11-year-old Sasha, will be at the event.
Celebrities have praised Barack Obama after he announced he supports gay marriage. The president revealed in a new interview that he had changed his mind about same-sex couples legally commiting.
"There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we're talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn't dawn on them that somehow their friends' parents would be treated differently. It doesn't make sense to them and frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective," he said in an interview with ABC News.

George had previously warned that if action were not taken in the next few months "we're going to have a real humanitarian disaster.
