The President of the United States had kind words for the actress at the campaign fundraiser she co-hosted in Connecticut with Aaron Sorkin, Harvey Weinstein and Joanne Woodward.
While speaking to the 50 guests who each paid $35,800 to attend, Obama praised her performance in The Dark Knight Rises and said:

While business billionaires are busy throwing money at Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, Barack Obama is once again turning to Hollywood for financial support.
George Clooney, Ryan Murphy, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwen Stefani and Morgan Freeman have already done their fair share for the President's re-election campaign, but now a few more Hollywood heavyweights are stepping up to the plate too.

Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to violence on film since he's produced all of Quentin Tarantino's movies, but after the tragic Dark Knight Rises shooting, the movie mogul is the first to admit it's time to talk about it.
While speaking with sources about a host of issues, Weinstein admitted that he wrestles with the use of violence in productions he is involved with, saying:

Anna Wintour is really serious about getting President Barack Obama reelected!
The First Lady of Vogue will be hosting another fundraiser, this time with producer Harvey Weinstein.
Last year, the duo held a benefit dinner at Weinstein and Georgina Chapman’s townhouse, but there’s no word on where it will be held this year.
No date has been set, but we do know that it will cost $35,800 for a ticket!
Earlier this summer, Wintour co-hosted a Presidential benefit dinner at Sarah Jessica Parker’s NYC home.
Hopefully they'll give away a couple of tickets to the plebs like last time!

Remember the time Alec Baldwin called one of the most powerful people in Hollywood “a f*cking douchebag”??
He’s calling take backsies!!
When Harvey Weinstein refused to appear in Alec’s Cannes documentary last week, the star of 30 Rock became vocally irate at the Calvin Klein party they were both attending!
After Alec sobered up, he probably realized it wasn’t a great idea to publicly humiliate one of the few industry titans who could squash his career like an overripe tomato.
Thursday, Alec stepped down as auction leader of a Weinstein hosted benefit for AIDS research so as not distract from the charitable cause.
He attended as a guest and later sent this note to Harvey:

Alec Baldwin doesn't hold back!
The actor is FURIOUS at Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein because he refused to participate in a documentary about film financing that he's currently shooting at the Cannes Film Festival.
Alec arrived at the Calvin Klein IFP party on May 17 with fiancée Hilaria Thomas and immediately started bashing the Oscar-winning producer. He reportedly yelled out:

This is the last type of film we'd expect to receive a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival, but now that it has, it sounds like we may have our first huge break-out hit of the season!
The Sapphires tells the story of four Aboriginal sisters and cousins who form an all-girl singing group and wind up leaving the Australian outback to entertain the troops in Vietnam in 1968, and apparently, when it was screened out of competition over the weekend, the comedy received such a warm reception that even producer Harvey Weinstein is predicting that it's going to be a full-on smash!
