From Zooey Deschanel To Jenna Jameson: Meet The Jewish Converts Of Hollywood And Beyond


Zooey Deschanel

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.

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.

'New Girl' Gets A New Girl As Megan Fox Fills In For Zooey Deschanel


Megan Fox Zooey Deschanel

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.
