MICHELLE and Barack Obama enjoyed a swanky dinner with Steven Spielberg, Bruce Springsteen, and other Hollywood elites at Tom Hanks’ $26million mansion.
The former US leader and first lady were spotted in Pacific Palisades on Sunday night, where the Secret Service took over the neighborhood to accommodate the A-listers’ evening.
Located in a cul de sac, Hanks’ home was the perfect location for a lowkey but glitzy dinner after Tom and Rita celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary on Friday.
The ET director was in attendance with his wife Kate Capshaw, while “The Boss” Springsteen and his wife Patti also pulled up to mark Tom and Rita’s landmark celebration.
The four famous couples met up at around 7pm but stayed on at the party well after midnight and leaving in their six-car motorcade.
After celebrating with their famous pals, Barack played around on his Tablet, while Michelle - decked out in a gold sequined dress - seemed to read emails on her phone.
Meanwhile, Capshaw drove herself and billionaire Spielberg home in their Land Rover, while the Springsteens were driven home.
The Obamas appearance comes as they made the list of Hollywood’s most powerful duo at Number 50 out of 100 on The Hollywood Reporter’s annual list of industry figures.
They’re also crossed the political divide into entertainment by writing their multi-million-dollar memoirs and a partnership deal with Netflix to produce inspiring stories via their Higher Ground Productions.
“The former president and first lady kicked off 2019 with a Sundance acquisition – documentary “American Factory,” which premiered to strong reviews on Netflix in August en route to an awards-season run,” The Hollywood Reporter enthused.
