The group — which also includes Mark Ruffalo, Natasha Lyonne, Julia Stiles, and “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon — penned an open letter this week to the Massachusetts Democrat, pushing her to make a White House bid.

“Senator Warren, we’re ready to show you that you have the support needed to enter this presidential race,” the letter says. “We’re ready to fight with you, Senator Warren. Please, run for President.”

The Hollywood stars are banding together to form a group called “Artists for Warren.” The lawmaker has repeatedly denied she’ll be vying to become President Warren, answering simply, “No,” when Fortune magazine asked last month if she was going to run.

But the celebs don’t appear to be deterred.

“These artists inspire us,” Ready for Warren super-PAC campaign manager Erica Sagrans said in a news release, “and they’re making it clear they’re inspired by Elizabeth Warren — her integrity, her authenticity, and her vision for what our country can be.”
