Mark Ruffalo and a bevy of Hollywood fixtures — including director Michael Moore, “The View’s” Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and “Sex and the City’s” Cynthia Nixon — are participating in a star-studded counter-event to President Trump’s State of the Union.

The so-called “People’s State of the Union” will be held on Monday, the night before Trump’s address to Congress on Jan. 30.

Ruffalo, one of Trump’s most outspoken Hollywood critics, told People magazine that the alternative event will be “a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view.”{mosads}

“I think it’s important because we have a president who has a difficult time with the truth, who has a radical, divisive agenda, and spends an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair,” the Oscar-nominated actor said.

The function, hosted by We Stand United, Political Action and Stand Up America, will also reportedly feature comedian Wanda Sykes, actress Kathy Najimy, singer Andra Day and rapper Common.

ITK has learned the ticketed gathering will take place in New York City and will be livestreamed online

“Spotlight” star Ruffalo called the “People’s State of the Union” a “celebration of the power and the beauty of this movement, but also of our accomplishments and to focus on what’s to come in the immediate future.”
