Hollywood stars weren’t the only ones pitching in to buy some Girl Scout cookies at Chris Rock’s urging at the 88th annual Academy Awards — Vice President Biden also coughed up $20.

Oscars host Chris Rock tweeted about the donation during Sunday’s telecast.



Rock made a pitch at the awards ceremony for celebs in the audience to contribute to the cookie-selling effort in order to help his daughters’ troop.

“Reach into your millionaire pockets and buy some of my daughters’ Girl Scout cookies,” Rock, a comedian and dad of two, said.

Biden was on hand at the Los Angeles awards show to introduce Lady Gaga’s performance of the Oscar-nominated song, “Til It Happens to You,” about campus sexual assault.

Kate Winslet, John Legend and Christian Bale were among the entertainers seen opening their wallets to buy some of the sweet treats.

Rock claimed later in the telecast that more than $65,000 was raised during the show.
