Sarah Jessica Parker appears in President Obama campaign ad, throws fundraiser with Anna Wintour
Sarah Jessica Parker can be added to the list of celebrities who lend their support to President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign.
The "Sex and the City" star appeared in a campaign ad to promote an upcoming fundraiser she's throwing in the President's honor in her home along with Vogue Editor in chief Anna Wintour.
In the ad, which can be seen below, Parker says, "Ok, the guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want and the guy who created four million new jobs. That guy -- President Obama -- and Michelle, are coming to my house for dinner on June 14."
"And I want you to be there too," she adds, promoting a contest for people to win a chance to attend. "Because we need him and he needs us."
The ad appeared during the MTV Movie Awards on June 3. The event is similar to one George Clooney threw last month in the Los Angeles area. That fundraiser included high-profile attendees like singer Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Murphy, Jack Black, designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Salma Hayek, actor and frequent Oscars host Billy Crystal. It also raised nearly $15 million for the Obama campaign.
Guests paid $40,000 to be at the private event, which was held inside a tent on the actor's outdoor basketball court.
Wintour, who is co-hosting the party with Parker, also appeared in a video to promote the fundraiser. "It'll be a fantastic evening and you can join us," Wintour says in the ad. "We're saving the two best seats in the house for you."
"Sarah Jessica and I have our own reasons for supporting President Obama," she adds, "And we want to hear yours. So please join us ... but just don't be late."
Sarah Jessica Parker was recently cast for a guest stint on the fourth season of "Glee." It will be Parker's first television role since "Sex and the City" went off the air in 2004.
The actress previously starred in "New Year's Eve" and "I Don't Know How She Does It" and has an upcoming role in the film "Lovelace" as feminist activist Gloria Steinem. She replaced Demi Moore in the role.
The film is about Linda Lovelace, who was dubbed the "first erotic superstar" and who rose to fame with the 1972 porn film "Deep Throat."
