Owen Wilson on Trump: Charlie Sheen of politics

Actor Owen Wilson dissed Donald Trump’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination in an interview with The Daily Beast.

“You can’t help but get a kick out of him, and I think part of it is we’re so used to politicians on both sides sounding like actors at press junkets—it’s sort of by rote, and they say all the right things,” Wilson laughed. “So here’s somebody who’s not following that script. It’s like when Charlie Sheen was doing that stuff—like, wow! He’s answering a question completely honestly, and in an entertaining way. You sort of feel he could be a character from Network.”

While Trump has said some obscene things on the campaign trail, Wilson acknowledged his ability to engage voters.

“I don’t know if I’m not taking it as seriously as I should,” he said. “But when he said he was going down to the border and he showed up at a press conference and said, ‘Now I’m going out to the border and I hope I’ll see you later’—sort of suggesting that it was so dangerous that ‘Who knows if I’ll see you later’… I don’t know, it was just funny to me. The guy is a showman. You have to sort of get a kick out of the guy. It is entertaining, for sure. That’s why people are tuning in.”

The actor, an Obama supporter, hasn’t thrown his support behind any of the 2016 hopefuls, but a Trump endorsement seems unlikely.

“You can’t honestly believe he really could be president, do you? I have a hard time believing that… that still seems so far away. That doesn’t quite seem realistic to me. But talk to me in a few months. We’ll see.”

Obama Fundraises for the DNC in Beverly Hills

President Obama raised money for the Democratic National Committee at the Beverly Hills home of Tyler Perry on June 19.

Obama reportedly spoke about criminal justice reform, according to The Hill.

“We should be reforming our criminal justice system in such a way that we are not incarcerating nonviolent offenders in ways that renders them incapable of getting a job after they leave office,” said Obama.

“Little slip of the tongue there. Little Freudian slip. Tyler is going to give me a job once I leave.”

Actress January Jones and “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner were in attendance, as well as former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, former NBA player Jason Collins and Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

Attendees paid between $2,500 and $33,400 for tickets to the event.

Following the fundraiser, Obama privately met with director Steven Spielberg and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg at the Beverly Hills Hotel, according to the National Journal.

Neil Young to Donald Trump: Stop Playing My Music

Neil Young is no fan of Donald Trump.

During Trump’s presidential announcement last week, Young’s Rockin’ in the Free World was played and the rocker was none too happy.

“Donald Trump was not authorized to use ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ in his presidential candidacy announcement,” said a  statement from Young’s manager.

Young then endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidential race.

“Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire Raise Cash for Hillary Clinton

A bevy of Hollywood A-listers turned out for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser in Los Angeles on June 19.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer, Elizabeth Banks, Dustin Lance Black, and producers Howard Gordon and Bruce Cohen were among the Hollywood stars opening up their wallets for Clinton.

Maguire and Meyer, as well as HBO’s Michael Lombardo, opened their homes for two separate events for the former Secretary of State.

Tickets for the exclusive events were priced at $2,700 per person. This is Clinton’s second trip to Los Angeles for fundraisers since announcing her candidacy for president. In May, Clinton raised a reported $3 million at the homes of Steven Bochco and Haim Saban.

The entertainment industry’s left-leaning political bent has made Clinton an early favorite for the 2016 election.

Calif. Senate candidate Kamala Harris raking in Hollywood cash

California attorney general and United States senate candidate Kamala Harris has won the financial support of many big Hollywood names, The Hill reports.

Singer John Legend ($2,000), Family Guy writer Seth MacFarlane ($5,000), actor Sean Penn ($5,000), Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg ($5,200), director Rob Reiner ($2,700) and producer Laurie David ($5,400).

Other names to pop up on campaign finance reports include producers Norman Lear and Chuck Lorre, Steven Bochco, former ESPN personality and now-NFL Network host Rich Eisen, talent agent Ari Emanuel, model Julianne Phillips, producer Brian Grazer, Viacom President Doug Herzog, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and NBCUniversal Vice Chairman Ron Meyer.

Harris is running to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).
