10 Hollywood Actresses You May Not Have Known Who Are Of Jewish Heritage

Hollywood if full of gorgeous people, especially women. And while Hollywood is still not perfect when it comes to prejudices and discrimination (think about how many people of color you can name who won an Oscar),but if there’s one group of people Hollywood definitely can’t get enough of – it’s jewish girls. We can’t say for sure if this is a coincidence, or perhaps jewish women do possess some secret of beauty, but there’s no denying the fact that there’s a lot of gorgeous jewish women in Hollywood. Let’s take a look at the top 10 hottest ones, shall we?



1. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson has often been called one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. We’ve lost count how many times she ended up on the hottest list and how many times she was the sexiest woman of the year. And we totally see why. She’s got everything – a gorgeous body, a lovely slightly husky voice that will make anyone want to listen to her for ages, and she’s clearly a talented actress. Combine that with her charm and she’s pretty much perfect.

2. Kat Dennings
Kat Dennings is taking over Hollywood with her lovely curves, her great sense of humor and her ability to look sexy as hell yet adorable at the same time. Whether you know her as sarcastic Max Black from Two Broke Girls, the quirky sister from Thor or perhaps you’re a hardcore fan who knows her from Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, either way, once you witness the beauty that is Kat Dennings, you know there’s no going back. You’ll be her fan forever.

3. Goldie Hawn
Goldie was a right hottie in her day. Those big beautiful eyes, that happy smile. No one could resist Goldie Hawn. And she’s funny! That’s the thing about jewish girls, they’re lovely to look at and they know how to crack a joke. Good old Goldie might be seventy now, but look at her, still looking good and looking happy.

4. Mila Kunis
Mila is one charming lady, isn’t she? And she knows how to get what she wants. Did you know that to get her first major breakthrough role on That 70s Show she had to be at least 18, but she was actually just 14. She lied to the casting directors and said she’ll be 18, but didn’t specify when. It must’ve been her pretty little face, combined with charm and talent that convinced them to give her the role and now the rest is history.

5. Lizzy Caplan
Who’s this hot lady you might think. She does look familiar, doesn’t she? Like you’ve seen her before but not sure when or where. Well she’s come a long way from her goth chick vibes and sarcastic comments in Mean Girls, hasn’t she? That’s right, this gorgeous lady is all grown now and it look like she truly transformed from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan.

6. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sarah Michelle Gellar is a unique woman, you know that? She’s charming, funny and absolutely stunning. And she can be so different. She might look like she’s just your regular girl next door, but we know she’s so much more than that. Like remember how badass, yet quirky she was in Buffy? And then how devilishly mean she was in Cruel Intentions. How silly she was in Scooby Doo. Remember her in The Grudge? That movie still gives us nightmares. This lady can do absolutely anything!

7. Natalie Portman
You probably saw her first in Luc Besson’s Leon: The Professional. From a very young age you could tell that this girl is ridiculously talented. But who knew she’d grow into such a lovely woman. There’s something about Natalie Portman that makes her special. And we don’t mean just her looks, it’s some sort of inner strength that makes this woman irresistible. I mean have you seen V for Vendetta? What about Black Swan? This lady is just incredible.

8. Dianna Agron
What was your first impression of Dianna Agron? Do you remember her as Jenny from Veronica Mars? Or did you first set your eyes on her on Glee? Either way you’ve got to agree she’s very good looking. And incredibly talented. There aren’t a lot of actresses who can act, sing and dance. It’s usually one thing or the other. But Dianna can do it all and look amazing while she’s at it. And guess what, when she gets some free time she writes screenplays. Is there anything this woman can’t do?

9. Lisa Bonet
You probably first saw Lisa on the Cosby Show where she was playing a character named Denise Huxtable–Kendall. That was a long time ago, a simpler time really. The news about Bill Cosby haven’t broken yet. A lot of time passed since then and a lot of things changed, apart from one – Lisa Bonet still looks breathtaking.

10. Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer actually started her career as a model, and no wonder she did. Look at her. That girl looks astonishing. But once she started acting, it was obvious she’s destined for success. Have you seen her performance in Requiem For A Dream? She’s a phenomenal actress and if you need proof let’s just say her role in A Beautiful Mind got her an Oscar, a Bafta and a Golden Globe. Plus she’s a real stunner!
