Dozens of today's biggest stars such as Eva Longoria and Jessica Alba have traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina for the Democratic National Convention this year.

Alba took to Twitter to show her support for President Barack Obama during Wednesday's event.

"W miss @evalongoria at #dnc2012," Alba posted to her Twitter account, and added a photo via Instagram.

The "Sin City" actress and mother of two also posted several videos of the 2012 DNC events onto Twitter via Viddy, one of which revealed President Bill Clinton stating his support of Obama.

Meanwhile, Longoria will not only attend the 2012 DNC, but will be speaking at the event and serves as one of the national co-chairs for President Obama's re-election campaign.

Longoria was quick to separate herself from the role Clint Eastwood played during his speech that involved an empty chair last week, and the actress noted that she "come[s] from a very different place" than the elder actor.

"It was interesting, yeah, but I haven't seen the whole thing so it's not fair for me to judge it," said Longoria of Eastwood's remarks while talking to CNN's Piers Morgan.

The Texas-born Latino actress will speak in Charlotte on Thursday, the same night Obama is to accept the nomination.

In April, the "Desperate Housewives" star wrote a critical piece about the Republican party presidential nominee Mitt Romney, describing the politician as "on the wrong side of every issue that pertains to Latinos."

Alba and Longoria were just two of the many Hollywood stars attending the political convention this Year. Other leading ladies included Elizabeth Banks, Kyra Segdwick, and Sarah Jessica Parker, while "Scrubs" actor Zach Braff and superstar Mariah Carey were also present.

Moreover, A-list actresses Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are rumored to appear at the 2012 DNC. The Foo Fighters are also expected to perform at the event.
