Hollywood hypes Obama -- but can it read Gore?
He told an audience that included Spielberg, Oscar nominee Eddie Murphy, actress Jennifer Anniston and singer Jackson Browne that they have "enormous power" that comes with "enormous responsibility" because of their impact on American culture.
"Don't sell yourselves short," he said in a 25-minute address. "You are the storytellers of our age."
(As if Hollywood is in need of an ego-boost.)
But the glitterati do more than just raise money for empty suit liberals -- they'll get to read books "written" by one of them, too. PW reports that "Al Gore's eco-alarming book, An Inconvenient Truth, [will be] pre-Oscar party favors for the Hollywood elite."
I'm sure that the Oscar-bound celebs will enjoy reading about greenhouse gases during the one-half block limousine ride from the Renaissance Hotel to the Kodak Theater's red carpet...
