According to Deadline.com, the president remarked, “She’s spectacular. I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That’s just my personal opinion.”

Hathaway co-hosted the fundraiser with Weinstein, The Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin and Paul Newman’s widow, Joanne Woodward.

Comics React to Dane Cook's Colorado Shooting Joke

Michael Schwartz/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- During a performance at Los Angeles’ Laugh Factory, comedian Dane Cook stirred a backlash when he joked about the movie theater shooting in Colorado that left 12 people dead and 58 injured.

Cook said, “I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes [into the movie]. And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie’s pretty much a piece of crap. Yeah, spoiler alert. I know that if none of that would have happened, I’m pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in realizing it was a piece of crap, probably was like, ‘Ugh, f**ing shoot me.’”

Cook later apologized after backlash erupted over the joke, but the controversy about it — and about a comment about rape Daniel Tosh used to admonish a heckler earlier this month — started a conversation with comics at the Television Critics Association gathering in Los Angeles over the weekend. Specifically, how far is too far?

Brad Garrett, who is a stand-up performer but best known for his work on Everybody Loves Raymond, told ABC News Radio that Cook crossed the line. “Absolutely … That’s just, you know, super poor taste,” Garrett said.  “To me, that’s definitely below the belt because … there’s nothing about [the situation] that could possibly be [seen as] humor.”

For his part, Russell Brand disagreed, saying he hadn’t heard either comment from Cook or Tosh, but he feels nothing should be out of a comic’s sights.

“I think if someone’s…a comedian, and they say something…you should recall the bit that they’re a comedian.” Brand says people tend to “remove that from the analysis to … create some storm of condemnation.”

‘Dark Knight Rises’ Stays at No. 1, While Two New Movies Battle the Box Office

Warner Bros. Pictures/DC Comics(LOS ANGELES) -- Although The Dark Knight Rises collected $64.1 million in the second weekend to stay on top of the box office, the ticket sales have dropped most likely due to the Aurora, Colo. shootings and the start of the Olympic games reports the Los Angeles Times.

Two other movies lagged in their debuts at the box office this weekend. The Watch, a comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, received a paltry $13 million and Step Up Revolution, the fourth in a dance franchise, was even less successful with $11.8 million.

Christian Bale Visits Colorado Shooting Victims

Carey Rottman(AURORA, Colo.) -- Christian Bale arrived in Aurora, Colo., Tuesday to visit victims injured during Friday’s shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. The Batman actor was seen at the Medical Center of Aurora, and hospital personnel were overheard saying he was talking to patients.

Petitions asking the actor to visit Aurora were posted on Change.org following Friday’s shooting. Over the weekend, Bale released a statement regarding the massacre, saying, “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”

Christopher Nolan, who directed Bale in the latest Batman trilogy, released a statement Friday expressing his “profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy” that happened in Aurora. Anne Hathaway, who stars alongside Bale in The Dark Knight Rises, echoed their sentiments, saying, “My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act.”

Despite Tragedy, "Dark Knight Rises" Has Superheroic Box Office Debut

Warner Bros. Pictures/TM and © DC Comics(NEW YORK) -- After the shooting rampage at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado last Friday, Warner Bros. and the other major studios decided to put the usual box office horse race on hold for a day out of respect for the tragedy.

The numbers were released Monday, however, and as expected, The Dark Knight Rises topped the field, earning $160.9 million over the weekend.  The finish was lower than pre-tragedy estimates, but still ranks as the biggest 2D opening ever, and the third-biggest opening of all time, behind the $207.4 million earned by The Avengers, and the $169.2 million earned by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 -- and both of those films had the benefit of the more expensive 3D ticket prices.  

The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter in director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, also earned more on its opening weekend than its 2008 predecessor, The Dark Knight.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales:  

1. The Dark Knight Rises, $160,887,295
2. Ice Age: Continental Drift, $20,416,978
3. The Amazing Spider-Man, $10,887,111
4. Ted, $10,011,310
5. Brave, $6,024,987
6. Magic Mike, $4,291,432
7. Savages, $3,398,880
8. Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection, $2,253,074
9. Moonrise Kingdom, $1,831,471
10. To Rome With Love, $1,420,891
