For the second year running, Robert Downey Jr. tops Forbes’ list of highest paid actors in Hollywood. Since June of last year, Iron Man has made $75 million — impressive even by Tony Stark standards.
The tribe has done slightly better on Forbes list of highest paid actresses, with two fabulous Jewish ladies making the list.
Natalie Portman comes in 8th, having made $14 million last year from another movie from the Avengers franchise, “Thor: The Dark World.”
Mila Kunis made $11 million, due to the Wizard of Oz remake, “Oz the Great and Powerful.” She ranked 9th on the list.
Sandra Bullock deserves an honorable mention (Does anyone remember that time she had a bris for her adopted son?). She made $14 million as well for being suspended in front of a green screen for “Gravity”.

After weeks of silence, Mila Kunis has finally confirmed that she’s expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher, the Daily Mail reports.
The 30-year-old sat down with Ellen Degeneres in an episode timed for Mother’s Day. No details on whether the baby is a girl or a boy, or when the due date is, but the actress was more than happy to dish about her food cravings: ‘I’m very stereotypical. I eat sauerkraut all day long,” she said.
And before you ask, yes, Ashton has been more than accommodating:
He assumed that I was gonna have goofy cravings, so he stocked our secondary fridge with weird food,” Kunis added. “Just like pickles, and sauerkraut, or like anchovies, and ice creams…just in case at one point during this pregnancy I’d be like I really want something. And it happened last week, I was like oh my God, I need a pickle. Like it was just the weirdest thing. Like I needed this pickle and he was like hold on a second and disappeared in the backyard and came back with the most amazing dill pickle of all time.
The “That 70s Show” star also revealed that she wants a natural birth. “We watched a couple of documentaries and we looked into the like the you know midwife aspect of it and things and spoke to my OB/GYN and realized that the hospital that I’m going to be labouring in does have a midwife, you know, Doula type of thing.”
Kunis, who is Jewish and originally from Ukraine, added that Kutcher was learning Russian so they could raise a bilingual child.

Leading the contingent of Nice Jewish girls is Emily Ratajkowski (in fourth place), star of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” According to Haaretz, Ratajkowski is of Polish-Jewish descent on her mother’s side.
Mila Kunis is still going strong in sixth place, though down from her top spot as last year’s #1 — Jennifer Lawrence has that honor this time around.
Kunis, who is expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher, was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States when she was 7-years-old.
Scarlett Johansson (don’t call her ScarJo) rounds off the top 10 in tenth place.
Other members of the tribe include Rachel Riley, of British TV show “Countdown,” (#17); chef Nigella Lawson (#24); “Mad Men“‘s Alison Brie (#39); British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (#61); “Glee“‘s Dianna Agron (#84) and Israeli actress Gal Gadot (#97).
If you can believe it, Bar Rafaeli is only #66.
Mila Kunis puts the va-va-voom in villain. And now, everybody knows it.
The 30-year-old actress looked amazing as she accepted the golden popcorn for Best Villain in “Oz the Great and Powerful” during last night’s MTV Movie Awards.
“Listen, you guys, you just made my 12-year-old self dream come true,” she said. “This is by far the coolest award and I just realized I was the only woman nominated and I won!”
Kunis and fiance Ashton Kutcher, 36, are reportedly expecting their first child ). Though the couple has kept silent on the subject, multiple sources confirmed the news in late March.
The name game hasn’t started yet, but RadarOnline reported in December that the two planned on raising their prospective children in the Jewish tradition (Kunis is a Ukrainian Jew).
Pregnancy agrees with you, Mila. Keep rocking it.
The Jewish celebrity baby news train keeps on rolling.
Newly engaged Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are expecting, E!Online reported.
Kunis, now the face of Jim Beam bourbon, was apparently seen attending a pre-natal yoga class in Hollywood.
Rumors of a Kutcher, 36/Kunis, 30, engagement surfaced in February, when the “Ted” star was spotted shopping with a rather large rock on her finger. The pair had been dating for two years. Kutcher’s divorce with actress Demi Moore was finalized in November.
RadarOnline reported](http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/11/mila-kunis-wants-kids-with-ashton-kutcher/) in December that the two planned on raising their prospective children in the Jewish tradition (Kunis is a Ukrainian Jew).
Ashton and Mila feel like they won the baby lottery,” a friend told OK magazine.
“It was a total shock for both of them, but they feel up for the challenge,” the friend said. “It didn’t seem like it was possible for them to fall any deeper in love, but the prospect of raising an insta-family together has solidified their commitment to each other.”
The happy couple was caught on the kiss cam on Saturday at Clippers basketball game in Los Angeles.
Mazel tov to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher!
Rumors of the couple’s engagement went haywire on Thursday night after Kunis was spotted with a rather large rock on her finger.
An unnamed source finally confirmed the news to Us Weekly. “She is crazy about him!” the source added.
The couple, who met on the set of “That 70s Show” in 1998 (Kutcher was Kunis’ first on-set kiss), have been dating since 2011, shortly after Kutcher, 36, split with actress Demi Moore. Kunis, 30, was the longtime girlfriend of Macauley Caulkin.
While Kutcher himself isn’t Jewish (Kunis is a Ukrainian Jew), he is a known kaballah enthusiast. The couple recently attended the funeral of Rabbi Philip Berg, founder of the Los Angeles-based Kabbalah Center, in Safed.
May their future be filled with dates as cute as the one Kunis described in a recent Cosmopolitan interview: ” We have a thing called white T-shirt night and it’s when you wear jeans and a white T-shirt and you go on a date. Nothing fancy, it’s just something that you love to do… whether that’s bowling or dinner or going to a cheese shop.”
Hollywood’s sexiest Jewish woman (really, Buzzfeed made it official) and the golden boy of Kabbalah have spoken: they want Jewish kids.
According to RadarOnline, Mila Kunis “definitely wants children with Ashton [Kutcher] and wants to raise them in her Jewish religion.”
Jewish American actress Scarlett Johansson has been named the sexiest woman alive for the second time by Esquire, the men’s lifestyle magazine said on Monday.
“The Avengers” star was named sexiest woman in 2006 and is the only woman to have been given the title twice by the publication. The annual recipient of the title is chosen by Esquire editors.
Husky-voiced Johansson, who rose to prominence as a teenager in the 2001 cult film “Ghost World,” stars in three films this fall. In “Don Jon” she plays the girlfriend of a pornography addict and in the sci-fi thriller “Under the Skin” she is a seductive extraterrestrial. She voices a man’s computer companion in “Her.”
“You know, I gotta hustle,” Johansson told the magazine of her busy work schedule. “I’m a 28-year-old woman in the movie business, right? Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop.”
Johansson said last month she was engaged to marry French journalist Romain Dauriac. Her previous marriage to actor Ryan Reynolds ended in 2011 after three years.
Last year’s sexiest woman, according to Esquire, was American actress Mila Kunis. Barbadian pop singer Rihanna, British actress Kate Beckinsale and South African actress Charlize Theron have all been given the “sexiest” distinction by the magazine.
Russell Brand may have many notches above his bedpost, but one name definitely doesn’t appear.
In an interview with The Sun, the actor and comedian recalled how he failed to seduce Mila Kunis while on the set of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” in 2008. Kunis was dating former child-star Macaulay Culkin at the time.
“I was chatting her up, and got the conversation around to, ‘Have you got a boyfriend?’ and she went, ‘Yeah,’Brand told The Sun.
Little did he know that “Mac,” as she referred to him, was none other than the star of “Home Alone.”
“So you know that feeling of ‘How long do I have to maintain an interest in this conversation now?’ It’s 12 seconds. She’s talking about her boyfriend ‘Mac,’” Brand explained. “Eventually, she said ‘My boyfriend’s coming tomorrow.’ She was excited — and when he came it was not ‘Mac’, it was Macaulay Culkin!
Needless to say, Brand wasn’t too impressed.
“He’d got longer,” he added. “Like a veal calf, like he’d been grown in a crate. All pale and scared of himself, like a shaved horse. There was a horror about him! Macaulay Culkin! The little lad out of ‘Home Alone!’ She’s [bleeping] him!”
Kunis and Culkin dated from 2002 to 2011 (nine years — really?!). The widely proclaimed “Sexiest Woman Alive” is now romantically linked to first kiss and former “That 70s Show” co-star Ashton Kutcher.
Ah, summer. Love, sun, royalty and the French Rivera. At least that’s how it is for some. For others, it’s more like frizz, sweat, and general unpleasantness.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher fall in the first category. Us Weekly snapped a picture of the couple sharing a little smooch by the beach in Saint Tropez on Saturday.
The couple were also spotted shmoozing with new BFFs Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark. Activities included sun-tanning, surfing, a trip to Le Palmiers beach club, and a relaxing afternoon on a yacht. Tres chic.
The two couples met while Kunis was in London filming “Jupiter Ascending” with Channing Tatum. “They all get along really well,” a source told Us Weekly. “Bea thinks Mila is awesome.”
Though British tabloids are already setting a date, Kunis has said she wants to wait a while before marrying and starting a family.”You have to choose,” she told James Franco who interviewed her for Playboy in February, “privacy or career.”
Mila, 29, and Ashton, 32, met on the set of “That 70s Show” in 1998. They’ve been dating since April 2012.
The jury is in, the people have spoken, and once again, Mila Kunis has come out on top.
After stealing top spot as FHM’s “Sexiest Woman in the World”, Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” and Details’ “Most F*ckable Celebrity,” Kunis now ranks #1 on Reddit’s list of “100 Sexiest Women Alive.”
One Reddit user decided to test the system and create his own popular list. In a post called “Lets vote our top 100 Sexiest Women shall we?”, daxl70 encouraged the Celebs subreddit to vote on its favorite celebrity ladies.
The rules were as follows: Each user had to post a comment ranking ten celebrity women from 1 to 10. Each woman was given a set number of points depending on where, and how many times they were ranked. The only criteria for inclusion? Any kind of celebrity status.
Our girl Mila did it again, besting Scarlett Johansson (#2), Jennifer Lawrence (#3), Olivia Wilde (#4) and “Mad Men“‘s Alison Brie (#5) for the honor.
Much like the socially inept persona he plaid in “The Social Network,” Jesse Eisenberg has much to learn about social graces.
The Jewish celeb sat down with Univision News’ Romina Puga to promote his upcoming film, “Now You See Me” two weeks ago, and as the interview surfaced the web, it became pretty apparent that the two didn’t get along very well— and by not getting along very well, I mean Eisenberg basically made Puga cry.
When Puga referred to Eisenberg’s co-star, Morgan Freeman, by his last name, he responded, “Freeman? Who are you? What are you on the baseball team with him?”
Puga took to Univision’s Tumblr to explain the awful interaction, writing up some of the dialogue the two shared. The most uncomfortable part went like this:
Ashton Kutcher met the parents.
Over the weekend, the Steve Jobs impersonator was spotted in London hanging out with the parents of his Jewish girlfriend, “Oz” star Mila Kunis.
The Hollywood power couple have been dating for about a year now, and this was Kutcher’s first time meeting the Kunis family, the Daily Mail reports.
Kunis’s parents, Mark and Elvira, were visiting their daughter in London, where she lives while filming her new movie, “Jupiter Ascending.” Things with the parents must have gone well because paparazzi snapped photos of Kutcher and Kunis happily holding hands as they went for a stroll around Hampstead on Sunday, with Kunis’s parents following closely behind.
This is somewhat of a big step for Kutcher and Kunis — only two months ago, Kutcher told Elle that he is extremely private about his relationship with Kunis and will do all that he can to keep it that way. Yet weeks later, he’s strolling around town, getting cozy with the family.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis will be jetting off to the Holy Land next week, the Times Of Israel reported.
This isn’t Kutcher’s first trip. The “Two And A Half Men” star’s most recent Israel sighting was with ex-wife and fellow Kabbalah enthusiast Demi Moore in 2010.
This time however, Kutcher will be promoting high tech initiatives rather than tying a red string around his girlfriend’s wrist. According to Haaretz, Rabbi Eyal Reiss, leader of a Kabbalah center in Safed (headquarters of Jewish mysticism) said he was unaware of the couple’s upcoming visit.
Apparently, Mila isn’t a big fan.
What is it with Mila Kunis and loving propositions from fans?
Apparently Mila wasn’t the only one charmed by BBC Radio 1 reporter, Chris Stark, whose debut interview garnered over 10.5 million views on Youtube after the clip went viral. Kirsten Ariel Bledsoe, a senior at Hollins University in Virginia, was so inspired by Stark’s performance that she decided to ask the actress out herself — to her college cotillion.
In a video put together by Bledsoe and a friend, she says:
“I would really like to go out with a bang - or I would really like to go out with you. It’s my senior year in college; it’s my last school dance, so I figured I’d ask someone who’s never been to a school dance with a willing date before. So, just let me know, and I’ll bring the Blue Moon, and you just bring yourself,” Bledsoe told her celebrity crush in the video.
“I am gay. Any attention the video gets is a great way to highlight LGBTQ awareness in a rural Southern state,Bledsoe explained in an interview with The Daily Beast.
“I don’t know if Mila will say yes if the video reaches her. I do think that if she chooses to acknowledge it she will be kind and funny if not willing to go. The biggest conflict, I think, would be her busy schedule,”
So, why Mila?
“She is very grounded, and she is always herself. She is private, but she is real. She has a great sense of humor, and, you know, she isn’t bad looking either,” Bledsoe gushed.
Will she? Won’t she? We can’t wait to find out!
In the meantime, watch the video below (and take some notes — this is golden dating advice):
Hot on the trail of Golden Globes and Oscar season, it’s time for Hollywood’s finest to pray they still fit in their glam-wear, and head to the MTV Movie Awards, held on April 14. “Django Unchained” and “Ted” are the frontrunners, with seven nominations apiece.
“Ted” star Mila Kunis gathered two nominations, Best Female Performance and Best Kiss with co-star Mark Wahlberg.
The Internet bowed down to Mila yesterday after she played along with a nervous British reporter, in a scene taken straight out of “Notting Hill.” With repartee like that, maybe she can give JLaw a run for her money.
Check out the interview below:
On Valentine’s Day, love was in the air, and Mila Kunis and her main man Ashton Kutcher are here, there and everywhere. The couple was spotted at a Lakers game, and Kunis was all giggly and blushing about Kutcher during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’s show. But the most interesting tidbit is that the two are reportedly moving in together.
Ouch! And double ouch! Rumor has it that Drew Barrymore is undergoing painful laser surgery to remove her six tattoos as part of her moving closer to converting to Judaism (she’s apparently afraid she won’t be able to be buried in a Jewish cemetery if she stays inked).

Tattoo aficionados continue to be intrigued by One Direction’s Harry Styles’ tattoo of his sister Gemma’s name in Hebrew on his left bicep.
