Looks like a fun time was had by all at a fundraising lunch for Hillary Clinton co-hosted by Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel in Los Angeles Tuesday — that is, judging from the wacky pictures.
Shortly after 5 pm ET, Timberlake tweeted pictures of himself, his wife and the Democratic presidential candidate posing for selfies that look like they were taken in an old-fashioned photo booth.
"Wow," said Timberlake in his tweet.
The occasion was a fundraiser at the couple's home, for which they were a last-minute substitute for Leonardo DiCaprio, who bowed out because of a scheduling change. About 100 guests paid $33,400 each, so Clinton raised more than $3 million at the lunch.
The party for Clinton featured Hollywood stars and industry figures who back her, including Jennifer Aniston, Tobey Maguire and Shonda Rhimes. The Wrap reported that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes also were there.
Instagram rushed to share some photos from the lunch, like one of Timberlake and Biel speaking to guests and another of Aniston posing for a selfie with Clinton and Maguire's wife, Jennifer Meyer.
Clinton is in California this week for a series of starry fundraisers in Los Angeles, Laguna Beach and Silicon Valley.
She started the trip off taping a segment with Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, joking with the host in an effort to debunk rumors from the Republican camp about her health.
After Kimmel, Clinton headed to a fundraiser for 500 at the Beverly Hills home of ex-NBA icon Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie. She'll move to the Palo Alto area on Wednesday where she'll attend two fundraisers, one of them hosted by Apple CEO Tim Cook, according to the Mercury News in San Jose.
