“Nothing’s worse than an old Jew dating. You really think I could listen to somebody ask me, ‘What’s your sign?’Absolutely not dating. I have grandchildren, dear friends, my show - that’s all I want.” -- Mel Brooks on his lack of romantic endeavors.
Gwyneth Paltrow is OK. The nation breathes a sigh of relief.
High School Musical heartthrob Zac Efron had an emergency appendectomy yesterday. For his 11-year-old fans: that means Zac-y's got no appendix. An appendix is a small organ in the digestive tract connected to the cecum. And that means... oh, just look it up, kids. He'll be dancin' again in no time.
Jeremy Piven, David Duchovny, Daniel Day-Lewis (yes, Daniel A-Jew-is) and the Coen Brothers are among the (not so) many Jews who who won Golden Globes this past weekend. Anyone watch? Anyone care? ...OK. Moving on.
Kate Hudson went shopping. No, that's not news, but the picture that accompanies the story is priceless.
Yikes! Pretty Jew-ish actress Gwyneth Paltrow is in the hospital! And that's all we know!
For all you Jewish Americans out there
If you haven't heard, PBS is running a three-part documentary called The Jewish Americans. It's narrated by the super-dreamy Liev Schreiber and is chock-full of - you guessed it - Jewish Americans. It's pretty cool. But don't take our word for it. Here's what The New York Times had to say about it:
Jewish journeys into American society receive an earnest, lively PBS treatment that often seems as all-encompassing as the six million citizens who share this heritage. Their ancestors may have come from different homelands, but their ethnic commonality is considered essential to the dozens who testify in this six-hour sprawl of history.
And if you missed the first installment this past Wednesday, there are still four glorious hours to be aired January 16th and 23rd, for your Jewing viewing pleasure.
Shia LaBeouf nabs the cover spot (along with some guy named Harrison Ford) of the latest issue of Vanity Fair. This marks the second time in six months the young star has landed on their cover. Slow news cycle or really hot actor?
Jack Black is becoming a father. And that's not the big news. It's that he's doing it again.
Having bade farewell to his creation Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen, below, is turning to Vietnam War politics to portray Abbie Hoffman, a co-founder of the quintessential 1960s protest group the Yippies, in a Steven Spielberg film “The Trial of the Chicago Seven,” The Sunday Times of London reported. The trial grew out of protests at the 1968 Democratic nominating convention in Chicago, where violence led to the trial of seven demonstrators, including Mr. Hoffman, who were accused of inciting a riot. Variety reported that a representative of Mr. Spielberg would neither confirm nor deny the Sunday Times’s report. Mr. Hoffman committed suicide in 1989.
