Dennis Hopper was snubbed by George W Bush after his inauguration as US President for a second term - the SPEED star was asked not to attend a celebratory party he helped organise.

The veteran actor, who is a staunch supporter of Republican Bush, organised the CREATIVE COALITION BALL in Washington but received a phone call 24 hours before the event requesting him not to attend.

The Sopranos actor Joe Pantoliano, a co-organiser of the event, says, "I feel terrible that the White House inaugural committee that invited Dennis decided to dis-invite him."
