0

Barack and Michelle Obama joined the cream of Hollywood, including Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, and Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson for an elite A-lister party that lasted well past midnight.

The couples landed around 7 p.m. Sunday night at Hanks and Wilson’s $ 26 million Pacific Palisades mansion.

The hosts, who celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary on Friday, may have decided to turn the occasion into a weekend-long celebration by inviting some of Hollywood’s most powerful for a quiet dinner at their home, on a quiet cul-de-sac.

And it looks like they were having a good time as the celebs didn’t go home until after midnight – although none of the guests seemed to be the worst when they left the mansion.

The former president and first lady appear to have made the leap from politics to entertainment with their documentary partnership agreement with Netflix through their company Higher Ground Productions and multiple best-selling books.

In the elite LA neighborhood, Secret Service agents were spotted before the former president and first lady arrived.

Springsteen may have avoided getting behind the wheel after being arrested in February for alleged drunk driving. The charges against DWI were later dropped after a blood alcohol test showed his level was well below the legal limit of 0.08.

The couples have long been friends, and the Obamas, Hanks, and Springsteens have even vacationed together in the past – including a trip to Polynesia, where they were joined by Oprah.

Obama also chose to honor his friends during his tenure with a Medal of Freedom for Spielberg in 2015 and Hanks and Springsteen the following year.
