Shia Lebouf - his mother is jewish and father is french, something like that - he even has a jewish name Shia (pronounced "shaya")
His mother's name is Shayna.
It even says that he grew up in the jewish religion and had a bar mitzva, watever thats supposed to mean.

Where did you read that Johnny Depp was Jewish? I don't think that's true.

I always thought Michel Vartan was Jewish or of Jewish origin. Isn't Vartan a Sephardic name?

The world of Jewish entertainment is a tad bit depressing.

Like Harrison Ford is Jewish but probably is the ultimate tinuk shenishba and probably has no clue he is or what it means.

compared to

Michael Douglas who is completely not a Jew but wanted to be treated like one because he probably was taught a bissele of something from his father who is a yid. Unfortunately his mother is not a Jew so he'd have to convert, but he doesn't want to be a Jew THAT much.

Which reminds me of a British (maybe) Jew named Stephen Fry who also wanted to align himself as a Jew but not to the extent that he'd want to actually observe but enough that he could wear a badge saying "Jew" on it.
Who knows. Maybe he really is a yid.

Then there's Tori Spelling who may or may not be Jewish. I figure she is but she was brought up with a chanukah bush.

Need I go on?


Harrison Ford is aware he is Jewish. He isn't frum, but has a good attitude about it. I read and article--I'm sure he doesn't really know what it "means" though. He appeared with Gene Wilder in Frisco Kid, so maybe Gene taught him a thing or two.

Interesting...do you know Kirk Douglas is a Baal teshuvah? He wrote a book about it.

Stephen Fry is Jewish. Maybe one reason he doesn't identify more is that he is gay. But he is a celibate gay (I heard an interview on the BBC about 10 years ago, and don't know if this has changed). It was really kind of sad because you can see how hard it is for some of these people to do the right thing. He says he's gay by inclination, but doesn't want to live the lifestyle (maybe that is his pintele yid talking)

Some of My favorite Jews in Showbiz: David Mamet, Tom Stoppard, Steven Sondheim, Jerry Seinfeld, Harrison Ford (you mentioned), Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Bea Arthur, (I"m really dating myself!) Rob and Carl Reiner, Jeff Goldblum, Alot more (but I don't go to movies or plays anymore, as you can tell by the age of the people on my list)

People alot of people think are Jewish and are not: Ben Stiller, Ben Affleck, Steve Martin, Kevin Kline and Roman Polanski (3 Jewish grandparents, maternal grandmother not Jewish. He's a great artist, but given the crime he committed, kind of a relief he's not Jewish)
