Actress Elizabeth Taylor announced she would donate $2,300 (Ђ1,770), the legal limit, to Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
Thursday's announcement came amid speculation about whether Hollywood will embrace the Democratic New York senator as much as it did her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
"I have contributed to Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign because she has a mind of her own and a very strong one at that," Taylor said in a statement issued by her spokesman Dick Guttman. "I like the way she thinks. She is very savvy and a smart leader with years of experience in government, diplomacy and politics."
DreamWorks movie studio partners Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen are throwing a fundraiser next month for a Clinton rival, Sen. Barack Obama, an Illinois Democrat, reports AP.
Katzenberg has endorsed Obama, but Spielberg remains undecided, their political adviser Andy Spahn said.
Spielberg and other Los Angeles bigwigs are co-hosting a fundraiser for Clinton in the spring, according to her spokesman, Phil Singer.
