6 Degrees (no Bacon): Jewish celebrity roundup


Bar’s baffling boy problem

Hollywood, Fla. (JTA)—Some good news for the single guys out there: You can lose the JDate subscription because we have the perfect girl for you: Bar Refaeli is on the market, and she’s ready for a relationship. She told the Israeli newspaper Yediot Achronoth herself, the New York Daily News reports.

Can’t figure out why a hot blonde model is having trouble landing a guy? Neither can she.

“I don’t understand it,” Refaeli said. “I look great. I’m cool. I like going out. I like being at home, I like movies, I like eating. So what’s wrong with me? Why am I alone?”

Uh, we’re stumped, too. At least we can rule out the possibility she’s still not over Leonardo DiCaprio, whom she dated for six years. Refaeli did freak out one night while looking at online pics of her ex with his new girlfriend, Blake Lively. But after one big weep-fest she was good.

“It was like I was cleansed,” she said. “From that day, I haven’t cried since.”

OK, so here’s her type, in case you’re interested.

“I’m looking for someone serious, who I can set up home with,” she said. “Someone who comes from a warm, loving family like mine, who has values like mine.”

And this, too: “I’m very interested in going out with someone who is big and strong and famous.”

Good luck there!

Gordon-Levitt, Rudd vying for Ant-Man

It’s tempting to assume that Marvel’s latest comic book feature, “Ant-Man,” will be a Jewish film—and not just because the title sounds like a Semitic surname.

Two Jewish actors, Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Paul Rudd, are the front-runners for the lead role, Variety reports.

This won’t be another Hebrew Hammer, though.

“Ant-Man” centers on Henry Pym, a scientist who invents a substance that allows him to shrink down.  The Jewish casting options seem to stem from director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead,” “The World’s End”) eschewing the typical macho hero for the funny everyman, not a particular ethnic type.

May the best (ant) man win.

Portman on why she’s a Jewish role magnet

If you like to think of Natalie Portman as the typical (if slightly better looking than average) Jewish woman, you’re not alone. It appears Hollywood does, too.

Gracing the cover of Marie Claire’s November issue, the “Thor” star told the mag that the industry tries to typecast her. Here’s a passage from the interview:

“Like, every Jewish role comes to me,” she says, laughing.

Even now, when everyone from Mila Kunis to Scarlett Johansson is of the faith? “I look more Jewish than Scarlett,” Portman deadpans.

OK, but to be fair, Johansson did just play a woman named Barbara Sugarman in “Don Jon,” which is way higher on the Jew-o-meter than Portman’s Jane Foster in “Thor: The Dark World.”

If anyone is typecasting Portman, it might just be herself. The actress will star as Israeli author Amos Oz’s mother in “A Tale of Love and Darkness.” The film is her directorial debut.

Rose McGowan’s Jewish wedding

“Charmed” actress Rose McGowan tied the knot on Saturday to artist Davey Detail, People reports. They were married by a rabbi under a huppah in an outdoor ceremony. According to a source, 60 guests attended the “romantic and ethereal” event.

McGowan, who was seen leaving Monique Lhuillier’s boutique the day before the wedding, did in fact walk down the aisle in one of the designer’s gowns. And if it’s the same one she shared a pic of via Instagram recently, it was totally see-through.

Looks like she isn’t going to let marriage break her style.

It’s a boy for Ivanka Trump 

Mazel tov to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner on the arrival of their second child.

“We just welcomed a beautiful & healthy son into the world. Jared, Arabella and I couldn’t be happier!” the “Celebrity Apprentice” judge and Daughter of Donald tweeted.

No word yet on the name (perhaps mom and dad are withholding it until the brit?), or if the little fella was born with a comb over.
