Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Garner don't seem to care about Elizabeth Warren's propensity for claiming minority status - even when its not earned.
The aforementioned stars opened up their wallets last night to raise money for Warren, the Mass. Senate hopeful known as "fauxcohontas" on the Web for fabricating that she's 1/32nd Cherokee.
The event at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production studio in Santa Monica on Monday was billed as “A Massachusetts Evening” and Affleck’s co-hosts were Matt Damon and The Office’s John Krasinski.
Both Damon and Krasinski, however, were filming on location and couldn’t attend the fundraiser. Affleck went to work on his own to make sure the event was packed. It drew about 150 Hollywood donors, along with more than 200 individual donations to the Warren senatorial effort.
Attendees included Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Braff, Dana Delany, Tobey Maguire, Ed Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz, Alan Horn and Writers Guild president Chris Keyser. Other contributors included Steven Spielberg, Rob Reiner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Sally Field, Michael King, Harvey Weinstein and Alan Ladd Jr.
