The New York Post’s Page Six features these two celebrity quotes today:
“”YES, I have always loved a good blonde, and who wouldn’t?” — Mel Brooks “PART of the bar mitzvah is that you become a man supposedly at 13 years old. And as I was a man, I decided never to go to a synagogue again” — Jack Black.
Jewcy’s Izzy Grinspan says: “Are ‘Be Kind Rewind’ funnyman Jack Black’s feelings about his Bar Mitzvah really gossip-worthy? The New York Post seems to think so.”
So apparently does she (as, apparently, do I).
Incidentally, last year readers of the Jewish Teen ’zine JVibe gave Black its “Award for Best Singer/Group You Wish Would Refer More To Being Jewish.”
UPDATE: Last week’s London Jewish Chronicle had a silly pro-con assessment of Black’s “Semitic qualities.”
