The A-listers are gearing up to show Trump what they really think of him this weekend...

Just like they did for Barack Obama in 2009, celebrities will descend on Washington for the presidential inauguration this Friday, only this time they won't be there to celebrate, they will be there to protest

During the ceremony, celebrites including Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Fonda and Patricia Arquette are taking part in a 'Love-a-thon,' a three hour Facebook Live telethon to raise money for Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and Earthjustice - three organisations that support causes that the President-elect Donald Trump is against.

The main event, The Women’s March on Washington, is set for the day after the inauguration with more than 200,000 expected to attend. There are 370 sister marches set to take place around the world including London where more than 14,000 people have signed up including Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof.

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, who is helping organise the Washington protest has said in a statement: 'Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard. As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities.'

Scarlet Johansson who has criticised Trump for 'attacking' reproductive rights has said she would participate to 'make my voice heard and stand up for what I believe in.'

The actor is set to be joined by other A-listers including Amy Schumer, Julianne Moore, Zendaya and Cher who has been feuding with Trump on Twitter for over six years. Trump has responded to her criticism by saying she has a 'dying career' and that he 'knocked the shit' out of the singer during their Twitter exchanges.

Katy Perry is also set to perform at the Washington Womens March. The singer who campaigned for Hillary Clinton debuted a new blonde hairstyle over the weekend at artist Sham Ibrahim's unveiling of his provocative portrait of Trump as a baby in diapers leading many to speculate it's to poke fun at Trump this weekend.

In New York, Alec Baldwin, Michael Moore and Mark Ruffalo are set to protest alongside green groups outside Trump Tower.

What Celebrities Really Think Of Trump

Comedian Chelsea Handler will lead a corresponding women’s march in Park City, Utah during the Sundance film festival. Writing in the Hollywood Reporter, Handler said: 'Women are under a right-wing political assault, and I intend to fight back with all my might against a Republican president, a Republican Congress, and the radical, religious right who are drooling to defund Planned Parenthood health services nationwide.'

Describing Trump as a 'Predator-In-Chief' she called on readers to teach him 'a lesson that he can't do anything he wants, and that he can't trample all over the rights of America's 162 million women and girls.'
