It's a powerhouse cast!

Hillary Clinton has snagged a great spot in U.S. history. She is the first woman to accept a major party's nomination for President of the United States; she is the Democrats' bet for the November polls. She could become the country's first ever female president.

Of course, she's not going to win just like that. She's going up against Donald Trump, the Republicans' bet, who has his own multitude of devoted followers.

Star power

To help in her presidential bid, many celebrities are backing Clinton whether by speaking out or quietly donating to her campaign resources.

That said, here's a quick rundown of what the stars have said, done, or given to boost her chances of winning.

Hollywood icon Meryl Streep gave a heartfelt speech at the Democratic National Convention on July 26, 2016. She said, "What does it take to be the first female anything? It takes grit, and it takes grace." After Streep listed the names of women who have been the first in their fields, she pointed out, "These women share something in common: capacity of mind, fullness of heart, and a burning passion for their cause. They have forged new paths so that others can follow them, men and women, generation on generation. That's Hillary."

Along with Streep, Girls star Lena Dunham also gave a speech at the same event. "Hillary knows that access and opportunity are the American promise—not transphobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, and systemic racism," she stated.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga expressed her support for Clinton through an Instagram post where she is wearing a flag-themed bathing suit. The singer captioned it, "Nothing can keep a strong woman down. Vote for the first female U.S. president in history. Shake it up, America. This country needs a little rock 'n' roll."



Although she hasn't been as vocal as other celebrities, Beyonce showed her support for Clinton early on, when she attended a fundraiser in New York City in May 2015. Some reports say Queen Bey wants to keep her pro-Clinton stance low-key.

Reality star Kim Kardashian declared her support for Clinton via a selfie back in August 2015. She tweeted, "I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak and hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident."

Another early Clinton supporter is Pharrell. In October 2015, he told Ellen DeGeneres that he supports Clinton for president. He said, "It's time for a woman to be in there."

At around the same time, pop star Katy Perry performed at a pro-Clinton rally in Des Moines, Iowa. She was quoted as saying, "So much change can happen. Let's go, Hillary!"

For their part, Hollywood power couple George Clooney and attorney Amal Clooney hosted a fundraiser for Clinton at their Los Angeles home in April this year.

Just last June, Hollywood A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lopez attended a fundraiser for Clinton.

Then, anticipating the announcement at the DNC, JLo had tweeted a photo of herself with Clinton with these words: "So moved! Herstory in the making tonight! @HillaryClinton #ImWithHer w/ my oh yeah #itsabouttogodown face #letsgetit."

Young Hollywood stars like Demi Lovato and Chloe Grace Moretz have also expressed their support for Clinton. In fact, Moretz gave a speech at the DNC. She urged her fellow millennials, "We can elect a president who will fight to give every American a chance to graduate from college debt-free. We can elect a president who will fight for equal pay for equal work."

Fil-Ams for Hillary


It's not just members of the Hollywood community who are backing Clinton. Members of the Filipino-American community have also welcomed Clinton's candidacy, because she is perceived as "friendlier" to immigrants compared to Trump, who, in contrast, has been accused of being racist. 

On Facebook, there is a Filipino-Americans for Hillary page.

Among local celebrities, actress Giselle Tongi Walters, who shuttles back and forth the Philippines and the U.S., has expressed her support for Clinton. As she wrote in one of her Instagram posts: "History is made when a woman finally has a fighting chance to lead this great country!"
