Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel opened their Hollywood Hills home in late August for Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Tickets to the Clinton fundraiser ran at $33,400 per person and included famous attendees Jennifer (Meyer) and Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Aniston, Yael and Scooter Braun, Shonda Rhimes, and ICM Partners’ Chris Silbermann, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Timberlake and Biel were not originally set to host the fundraiser. Leonardo DiCaprio had offered his fundraising duties, but backed out at the last minute due to work-related events.
President Barack Obama tweeted a photo of him and Justin Timberlake on Wednesday, titled “Suits and ties,” a playoff of Timberlake’s new song, “Suit & Tie.”

Timberlake and wife, Jessica Biel, recently attended a DNC fundraiser with Obama.
Justin Timberlake and wife/actress Jessica Biel attended a Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser, headlined by President Obama, at Harvey Weinstein and wife Georgina Chapman‘s Manhattan home on May 13, reports Deadline.
The fundraiser for the DNC and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) was to raise funds for the 2014 midterm elections.
Approximately 65 guests attended the fundraiser, paying between $16,200-$20,000 a ticket. Among the guests at Weinstein’s house, were Steve Martin, Melanie Griffith, Steve Buscemi, Uma Thurman, as well as fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and White House staffers Dan Pfeiffer and Jay Carney.
The New York Post reported that Saturday Night Live comedian Jay Pharaoh impersonated Obama in a skit and was assisted by Timberlake, Biel and Martin who played White House staffers.
This was the first Hollywood-hosted fundraiser since Obama’s 2012 election. Obama tapped celebrity hosts such as George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Anna Wintour to host fundraisers in 2012.

Although many celebrities in Hollywood have begun coming out of the woodwork in support for President Obama, there are a few who have yet to declare support for the president again.
In an off-the-cuff video produced by the Obama campaign in 2008, singer/actor Justin Timberlake sings to encourage voters to vote, while girlfriend Jessica Biel dances in the background. The couple made other videos encouraging voters in Nevada to vote early.
So…do you think Timberlake and Biel will come out in support for the president this time around? Our guess is yes.
