Because faith isn't always something you're born into.
Zooey Deschanel has reportedly converted to Judaism for her new husband Jacob Pechenik, despite having never been affiliated with any religion before. The conversion took place prior to the marriage earlier this year and it seems the newly bonded pair and their new baby couldn't be happier.
Zooey Deschanel converts for Jacob Pechenik
Having been raised in a liberal environment, with both parents affiliated with Christian denominations, the 'New Girl' actress never really found her own spiritual path. That is, until producer Pechenik came along and she began to study the teachings of the Jewish faith, according to a source in Us Weekly. This could mean that they'll also be raising baby daughter Elsie Otter in a Jewish household.
Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik told waiting reporters about the inspiration behind their three-month-old girl's name.
Three months after she gave birth to her first child, Zooey Deschanel has revealed the unusual middle name she and her husband have given their baby daughter, and the inspiration behind it.
The ‘New Girl’ and husband Jacob Pechenik have chosen the name Elsie Otter for their three month old girl, they told People magazine at the red carpet premiere for Rock The Kasbah in New York on Monday night (October 19th). “It’s Elsie…” Deschanel began, with her husband jumping in with “Otter”. “Like the animal,” she explained, with Pechenik adding “sea otter”.

Fox will be filling in for Deschanel while she's on maternity leave for a handful of episodes.
Producers of Fox comedy ‘New Girl’ have revealed their plan for how to cope with lead actress Zooey Deschanel’s upcoming maternity leave, and they’ve landed a pretty sizeable name to temporarily replace her. Transformers star Megan Fox will be moving into the attic as part of a multi-episode arc during the new fifth season.
Essentially, since Deschanel's pregnancy was never part of the series' storyline, the producers will explain away Deschanel’s absence through a plot in which her character Jess is sequestered on jury duty for a time. At that point, Fox will move into the apartment for a while. She’s to play a character called ‘Raegan’, a “gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft,” according to Fox’s press release.

Lucy Lawless says it's just a rumour, but we can dream.
So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?
In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Zooey Deschanel, Barbra Streisand, Nicolas Cage... when common names become unique.
Keira Knightley has always baffled the world with her first name's unique spelling, but as it turns out, rather than it being creative license on the part of her parents, it was a simple spelling mistake that less than impressed her father.
Keira Knightley has done well despite the difficult start her name had
In an interview with Elle magazine, the 29-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star explained that she was supposed to be named after the Russian figure skater Kiera Ivanova but her mother got the spelling wrong when she went to register the birth. Apparently, this didn't go down too well with Mr Knightley.
Date of birth
17th January, 1980
