President Barack Obama isn’t hurting for big checks from Hollywood.

The Obama Victory Fund, the joint committee of the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee, listed several donations from A-list actors in its latest campaign finance report filed Tuesday.

The committee’s February haul included $35,800 from actor George Clooney, $71,600 from Jim Belushi (double the allowed amount), $30,800 from Will Ferrell, $10,000 from Bette Midler, and $1,000 from Mila Kunis.

Top designers also ponied up for the Democratic cause, including a $30,800 donation from Michael Kors and $28,300 from Tory Burch.

The committee received $30,800 from Jeffrey Soros, a Los Angeles film producer and the nephew of Democratic megadonor George Soros. Jeffrey’s wife, Catharine, also donated $30,800. And Stephen Bing, CEO of Shangri-La Entertainment, donated $3,700.

Craigslist founder Craig Newmark also donated $10,000 to the committee last month.
