Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein opened up his New York City home on Monday night (13May13) to host U.S. President Barack Obama for a special event.

The producer and his wife Georgina Chapman threw a bash at their townhouse for the leader and select guests, including Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel.

Designer Tommy Hilfiger was also present at the event, where Obama spoke about recent tragedies in America as well as his second term in office.

He told the crowd, "You start thinking about the history... the three-and-a-half (years) I've got (left in office) is not a lot, so I've got to make sure that I use everything I've got to make as much of a difference as I can."
