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.

Chakrams At The Ready! Who Should Play Xena In The Rumoured TV Re-Boot?


Lucy Lawless Gina Carano Charlize Theron Zooey Deschanel Ronda Rousey Ruby Rose Gemma Arterton Zoe Saldana Laverne Cox

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?

Lucy Lawless

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.

Keira Knightley Admits She's A Spelling Error, But Who Else Has A Weirdly Spelt Name?


Keira Knightley Jaime Winstone Alyson Hannigan Thom Yorke Tobey Maguire Courteney Cox Barbra Streisand Nicolas Cage Zooey Deschanel Ioan Gruffudd Ashlee Simpson

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.

Thank you to all of the lovely gals in our hair and make up department for my early birthday celebration!
Just found out that this beautiful lady Carey Lander from one of my favorite bands, Camera Obscura, has passed away. I had the great pleasure of touring with them a few years back. She was a lovely person. I am thinking of her and her loved ones today. If you have a spare dollar donate to raise research funds to treat the cancer that took her: https://www.justgiving.com/Carey-Lander
