  • Who are the Jewish celebrities voting for?

    The election season is almost over, thankfully, but before the we all find out who is the next POTUS, we thought it would be interesting to look at the political preferences of some famous Jews. Some of the Jewish celebrities are very outspoken regarding their opinions, some are more quiet and most of them donate a lot of money.
    Check out the list, who knows, maybe it will change how you will vote (I really hope it won’t though):
    Republican Jewish Celebrities:
    Jerry Bruckheimer

    The producer behind “CSI,” “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Top Gun” and more has donated for the Bush, McCain and Romney campaigns More ▸

  • 7 Jewish celebrities who started acting when they were kids

    Yesterday we showed you how adorable (and resourceful) Mila Kunis was as an 11-year-old girl in the unforgettable show “Baywatch.”
    And if Mila did it, there’s no shame, so we decided to dig a little deeper into the wonderful world we call television, movies and commercials of the 1980s and 1990s, and show you other famous Jewish celebrities who had to work their way up to the top of the acting world. Some of them started as a lead in a feature film, others had to use their young acting talents (and raw cuteness, we’re looking at you Sarah Michele Gellar) to promote a burger chain.
    1. Natalie Portman

    Age: 13
    Role: Mathilda Lando in the 1994 French (English-speaking) film “Léon: The Professional.”
    Plot: Portman’s first major role was really serious, actually. She played a seductive 12-year-old girl who smokes cigarettes and comes from an extremely dysfunctional and abusive family.
    What she’s been doing since: Portman continued to have minor roles throughout the 90s, until her breakout role in 1999 as Princess Padmé Amidala in the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy. She later had a few lead roles, including an unforgettable role as Evey Hammond in “V for Vendetta” for which she had to shave her head, and then later won an Academy Award for her role in the 2010 film “Black Swan,” making her one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood, especially among Jewish fans (including this blog). More ▸

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar’s daughter is her stylist

    While many stars have fancy pantsy highly paid stylists picking out their awards show wear, Sarah Michelle Gellar took advice from someone who may know her a little better — her daughter! The Buffy star told reporters that her two-year-old daughter, Charlotte, picked out her dress for the 2012 Golden Globes. “My 2-year-old walked in,… More ▸

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar discusses embarrassing moments and bacon food trucks with Chelsea Handler

    Ringer star Sarah Michelle Gellar stopped by Chelsea Handler’s late night talk show to promote her new series and recounted one of her most embarrassing moments ever. Apparently Sarah spied Chelsea in a parking lot and waved to her as though they knew each other, which they did not (at the time at least). Sarah merely recognized the host because, well, she’s famous. I guess Sarah has really lost her inner New Yorker. The way we handle celebrities in NYC is to pretend we didn’t see them while our insides shout “OMG! OMG!” And once they’re out of view, we begin the frantic texting.
    The conversation moved onto food trucks. Apparently Sarah is a fan of the one that only serves bacon products. At this new information, Chelsea deadpanned, “That’s perfect because I’m Jewish.”
    “They have kosher bacon,” Sarah said with a shrug.
    No Sarah, we don’t. I’ve never tried the real thing but I’m assuming that those swizzle sticks Morningstar Farms calls “bacon” aren’t actually representative of the actual product.

  • Famous Jews who wear crosses

    The Jewish Daily Forward just reported that Rachel Weisz, a very Jewish actress, has appeared in the Wall Street Journal wearing a crucifix (as well as some lovely clothing).
