With all the fundraising President Barack Obama has done in Hollywood, it’s no surprise that many A-listers — and some not-so-A-listers — have donated to his re-election campaign.

From Morgan Freeman’s $1 million donation to the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA, to Robert Downey Jr.’s $40,000 donation to the Obama Victory Fund, celebs have emptied their wallets out for the incumbent.

Alas, only four celebrities have donated to Mitt Romney’s election effort: John Rich of the country band Big & Rich gave $2,5000 to Romney’s campaign; producer Jerry Bruckheimer forked over $25,000 to the Romney Victory Fund; “Happy Days” actor Scott Baio donated $12,500 to the Romney Victory Fund; and Vince and Linda McMahon have donated $150,000 to the pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Faith in America, and $9,9100 to the Romney Victory Fund.

Romney’s puny list of famous donors pales in comparison to Obama’s, who has a handful of hotties in his back pocket.

And they are …
