The Schmooze

Lena Dunham on Sandy

As we know, lots of Jewish celebrities live in New York. So like all the other Big Apple residents, they were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Ivanka Trump tweeted a photo of her young daughter Arabella looking out the window at the storm. Some fans speculated whether Andy Cohen, cozy in pajamas and alone in the studio, was tipsy while taping “Watch What Happens: Live.” Others, far away from the East Coast, tweeted their love, prayers and support (“Miss you like a monster, NYC, you plucky girl,” wrote Lena Dunham). And in the weirdest Sandy-related item, Iranian media put Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy Rossum in the middle of all the action by publishing a photo of a scene from the 2004 disaster flick, “The Day After Tomorrow,” to illustrate a story on Sandy.

Gwyneth Paltrow was far away from the storm, but she made waves nonetheless. In Madrid, Spain to promote Hugo Boss’s new fragrance Boss Nuit Pour Femme, she was dressed to impress in two stunning short frocks — one in bright orange, and the other fashioned from black leather.

Speaking of beautiful women, Halle Berry spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her many transformations in her new film, “Cloud Atlas.” One of the characters she plays in a Jewish-German woman in 1936 named Jocasta Ayrs.

Jennifer Hudson performed a tribute to Clive Davis at the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation fall gala. In honor of Davis, who was given the Spirit of Hope Award, Hudson sang a medley of songs by the late Whitney Houston, who was Davis’ protégée.
