Hollywood turned out in force to support Michael Moore at a special screening of his controversial new documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11 on Tuesday (08JUN04).

Actors Martin Sheen, LEONARDO DiCAPRIO, Ellen Degeneres, David Duchovny, Sharon Stone, Meg Ryan, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Jodie Foster, Drew BARRYMORE, Chris Rock, Jack Black, Matthew Perry, Diane Lane, Marisa Tomei and Viggo Mortensen all attended the showing at the ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES THEATER in Los Angeles.

Moore's film criticises American president George W Bush's behaviour following the September 11th (01) terror attacks in Washington D.C. and New York and exposes links between Bush's family and AL-QAEDA leader OSAMA BIN LADEN's relatives.

At the screening of the PALME D'OR winning movie, Barrymore enthused, "I never come to premieres, but I'm so here on this one.

"I'm looking forward to this more than anything in the world."

After a seeing a clip from the film featuring Britney Spears pledging her trust for Dubya, TITANIC heart-throb DiCaprio burst into laughter.

EYES WIDE SHUT star Leelee Sobieski admits she cried during the documentary and said it "should be required for everyone in America to see as part of their education in high schools".
