From being the First Lady of the United States to possibly being the first lady to serve as President of the United States in the upcoming 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton has one thing the other candidates seem to be lacking… a lot of celebrity supporters. A-listers to reality stars don’t seem to have a problem telling the world that Bill Clinton’s wife has their vote for the next President of the United States. From George Clooney who raised over $15 million in support of the Democratic candidate to Steven Spielberg who has been said to have helped her with her speeches using his Hollywood resources, Hillary doesn’t fall short when it comes to celebrity friends.
From Lena Dunham who has been known to sport pro-Hillary attire to Kim Kardashian West who took the ultimate selfie with the former Secretary of State, so many stars are lending a hand to promote the female Democratic candidate. Whether they’re hosting an intimate campaign fundraising dinner at their house or uploading posts on their social media accounts in favor of the politician, here are 15 Celebrities That Are Voting For Hillary Clinton.

Having endorsed Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama in the past presidential elections, it’s not a surprise that Robert De Niro is indeed sticking with the Democratic party and siding with Hillary Clinton. And it seems as though the veteran actor was on team Hillary way back in 2006. “Well, I think of two people: Hillary Clinton and Obama,” Robert answered when asked who he’d like to see in office. In a later interview in 2015, he confirmed that he was still in support of Hillary. “I think that she’s paid her dues. There are going to be no surprises, and she has earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point. It’s that simple. And she’s a woman, which is very important because her take on things may be what we need right now,” he said.

Hillary claimed Kim’s selfie-approved phone made “everybody look better than you have any reason to look.”
In May of 2015, Beyonce attended a fundraiser event in support of Hillary Clinton. Later, Clinton’s campaign tweeted a picture of the superstar at the event with the caption, “Say you’ll Bey on Team #Hillary2016, too.” And it seems as though the support goes both ways. “I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer,” Hillary answered when she was asked if she’d rather be Beyonce or president.
