Robert De Niro was joined by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and hip-hop supercouple Beyonce and Jay Z on Monday (19Mar12) as he hosted a dinner to raise funds for U.S. President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
The Hollywood actor, his wife Grace Hightower and America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, greeted guests, who paid $5,000 (£3,125)-a-head to meet them at New York's Greenwich Hotel.
New mum Beyonce left baby Blue Ivy at home and enjoyed a night out with her rapper husband, her mother Tina Knowles and sister Solange, while actors Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Stiller, Angela Bassett and Mad Men star January Jones also lent their support to the campaign.
President Obama is seeking to land a second term in office when the 2012 general election takes place in November (12).
