Sarah Jessica Parker
President Barack Obama cozied up to a few dozen of NYC’s elite this week at a fundraising event at Sarah Jessica Parker’s house. The “Sex and the City” star hosted 50 guests, who each paid $40,000 per person for the chance to dine with the Commander in Chief and first lady Michelle. Altogether, the campaign stop banked $2 million, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Speaking in an art-filled room, Obama told the A-list crowd, including Meryl Streep, Aretha Franklin, Michael Kors and Anna Wintour, “You’re the tie-breaker. You’re the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes.” Parker’s husband Matthew Broderick, who is currently starring in Broadway’s “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” was noticeably absent due to a performance.
Lionsgate's "The Hunger Games," which begins competing in theaters on Thursday, has already generated more than $15 million in advance ticket sales.
