Anne Hathaway, Aaron Sorkin to be guests in Obama fundraiserLos Angeles: “The Dark Knight Rises” star Anne Hathaway and “The Social Network” screenwriter Aaron Sorkin are billed as co-hosts of an Obama fundraiser at the Westport home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, according to the Hartford Courant.

The event is also expected to draw screen legend Joanne Woodward.

Around 50 guests are expected to participate and tickets to the gathering are $35,800 a person, Reuters reported.

The film and television business remains a consistent source of financial support for Obama despite it has decreased since his initial 2008 White House run.

Los Angeles has been a regular stop on any Obama fundraising jaunts in recent years, and the president has had high-profile fundraisers hosted by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and George Clooney.

In addition to the Weinstein fundraiser, Obama will headline a $500-a-person reception at the Stamford Marriott. That event is expected to draw 400 people, according to the paper
