Actor Edward Norton and Moneyball director Bennett Miller have filmed a short documentary in support of U.S. President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

The project, We Hold These Truths, follows working Americans as they discuss their hopes for a better future in a country led by Democratic Obama.

But while Fight Club star Norton has previously publicly endorsed the politician, he does not appear in the seven-minute movie in a bid to put the spotlight on voters.

Norton explains to BuzzFeed.com, "I don't judge anyone else's choices but for myself, I don't relate to the idea of leveraging celebrity for its own sake. I'm not a believer of do this or pay attention to this because of who I am.

"Even though I support the President, to me it's much more interesting to encourage people to engage than to suggest that people should model themselves on me and my views."
