Amanda Peet Wrote New Book To Explain Her Jewish Stance On Christmas To Her Kids


Amanda Peet

The Something's Gotta Give star and her Game of Thrones co-creator husband David Benioff were raised Jewish, while her father was a Quaker, so they agreed not to celebrate the Christian holiday.

But when their children started to ask questions about Christmas, Peet thought it would be a good idea to write a book that would help them understand.

"My kids started asking me, 'Why don't we have any decorations on our house? Why don't we have a Christmas tree? Why isn't Santa coming to our house?'" she says. "I had to explain, 'Well, you're Jewish', but that's sort of as far as we got. So I wrote a book about this issue, where some kids don't celebrate Christmas and other cultures and religions don't observe this holiday."

Kristen Bell Joins The Pro-vaccination Celebrity Mums After Studying The Facts


Kristen Bell Jenny McCarthy Amanda Peet Dax Shepard

As stars mums like Jenny McCarthy continue to fight against vaccinations, claiming medical research suggests their kids could be at risk from serious illness, mother of two Bell has joined Amanda Peet and those that are for inoculation, because she believes it's her responsibility to make sure all kids are not put at risk by a decision she and her husband Dax Shepard have made.

She tells Good Housekeeping magazine, "I thought I would be anti-vaccination before I had kids. I'm very crunchy (earthy), and happily so. But there is a lot of scientific, proven information out there that shows why vaccinations are necessary.

"Kids with autoimmune diseases, kids who are receiving cancer treatments - they can't be vaccinated because their immune systems (can't handle it). If your kid has leukaemia, he can't get vaccinations; if he then goes to school with my kid and I chose not to give my kid vaccinations, I'm putting your kid at risk. To me, that's unacceptable.

The Way, Way Back Review


Extraordinary

An especially strong script gives actors plenty to chew on in this comedy-drama, in which writer-directors Faxon and Rash (The Descendants) take an observant look at the awkward connections we make with each other. Using sparky humour and emotion, the filmmakers and cast create vivid characters we can't help but identify with, even when they do all the wrong things.

At the centre, Duncan (James) is a 14-year-old who dreads spending the summer at a beach house owned by Trent (Carrel), the cruelly critical new boyfriend of his mother Pam (Collette). When they arrive, they meet gossipy neighbour Betty (Janney), who has a whole season of neighbourhood parties planned. And her daughter Susanna (Robb) looks just about as miserable as Duncan does. As he tries to escape, Duncan finds a local water park run by colourful misfit Owen (Rockwell), who takes Duncan under his wing and offers him a summer job. And being on his own gives him the badly needed self-confidence to talk to his mother honestly, take on Trent and maybe even ask Susanna out on a date.

Even though this is essentially a standard coming-of-age movie, the script never falls into the usual cliches. For example, when Duncan's first kiss comes along, it plays out in an unexpected, realistic way. This is a generous, honest comedy packed with terrific characters and resonant situations. Supported by the all-star cast, James delivers an impressive performance as a sullen teen struggling to face the world around him , growing up while remaining awkward and likeable. Meanwhile, Stockwell keeps us laughing with a lively party-boy turn that's underscored with sympathy. Collette beautifully layers the repressive, conflicted Pam. Carell goes nicely against type as the cruelly passive-aggressive Trent. And Janney steals the show with the most hilarious lines.
