The lavish dinner was catered by Wolfgang Puck himself, and is expected to raise up to $15 million in donations for Obama's campaign, which officially makes this one of the biggest presidential fundraisers in US history, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

After dinner the Prez gave a speech, and revealed that his famed Hope poster from the 2008 campaign was actually inspired by a photograph of Obama sitting next to Clooney, when he was a U.S. senator.

“This is the first time that George Clooney has ever been photo-shopped out of a picture. Never happened before, never happen again,” Obama confessed.

The $40,000 dinner included an artichoke salad followed by roasted duckling “Peking style” with tiny buns, a duo of lamb and beef cheek with potatoes and Brussels sprouts, and sweet corn tortelloni.

Robert Downey Jr., Barbra Streisand, Tobey Maguire, Eddie Murphy, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Herb Alpert, Salma Hayek and Clooney's ladylove, Stacy Keibler were just a few of the notable guests in attendance.

The President also thanked the Oscar winner for his support, saying, "We raised a lot of money because people love George. They like me; they love George. He seems to occupy a constant state of grace, and uses his extraordinary talents on behalf of something truly important.”

After dinner, Obama traveled to Beverly Hills to spend the night and is set to fly to Reno, Nev., in the morning to address residents on mortgage reform, and on Monday he will head to NYC for an event jointly sponsored by Latino and gay supporters.

Brad Pitt And George Clooney Support Gay Marriage, Participating In Prop 8 Play

Mar 4, 2012 10:30 AM


Brad Pitt and George Clooney participated in a table reading of the play 8 last night -- a work that explores the legal battle to overturn Proposition 8, California's ban on gay marriage.

Clooney recently addressed rumors he is gay, in an interview with The Advocate, saying: "My private life is private, and I'm very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I'm gay? I'll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don't give a s--t. I think it's funny, but the last thing you'll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, 'These are lies!' That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing."

Pitt has said he and partner Angelina Jolie wouldn't marry until ALL couples have the legal right to wed. Pitt and Clooney were joined by fellow actors martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Bacon, Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Glee's Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison, and Chris Colfer, and George Takei.
