Barack Obama held two star-studded events in his honor in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

The first was a $28,500-per-plate dinner at the landmark Greystone Mansion attended by some bold-faced names, including Tobey McGuire, Leonardo DiCapro Jodie Foster and Chris Rock.

The second, a $2,500-per-ticket fund-raiser at the glamorous Regent Beverly Wilshire included performances by Ben Harper and Barbara Streisand.

Among the crowd was Sarah Silverman and Ron Howard, who enjoyed the desserts and an open bar in between cracking jokes about the GOP's Sarah Palin and John McCain. Laura Dern watched her husband (Ben Harper) perform, but stood atop her chair when Obama made his entrance.

Together, the events raised an estimated $9 million for the Democratic presidential nominee.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was a busy man Tuesday night, courting Hollywood power players in two soirees that earned a single-night fundraising record of $11 million.

A-listers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jodie Foster, Tobey Maguire, Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Renee Zellweger all made the list. Directors supporting their preferred candidate included Steven Spielberg (assigned to a table with his wife, Kate Capshaw, and uber-agent Ari Emanuel), Peter Berg, Christopher Guest (with his wife, Jamie Lee Curtis), James Mangold, Garry Marshall, Adam Shankman, and Robert Zemeckis. Making the invite list from the TV world: Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David, Office showrunner Greg Daniels, 24 star Dennis Haysbert, Sex and the City director Michael Patrick King, Heroes creator Tim Kring, Aaron Sorkin, Randy Jackson, Darren Star, and Joss Whedon. Music royalty on call included Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy, Hans Zimmer, and Herb Alpert. Of course, many of Hollywood's top executives also scored seats: the DreamWorks cabal of David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Stacey Snider; Fox's Tom Rothman and Jim Giannopoulos, and their boss Peter Chernin; Warner Bros.' Barry Meyer; Sony's Michael Lynton; and Universal's Ron Meyer. So while you may not be able to fork over $28K-plus for steak and potatoes with the possible future leader of the free world, now you can at least envision the crowd that handed over those hefty checks.
