Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly wants to be one of the chosen people — no, I’m not referring to the Spice Girls — I’m referring to Jews. Apparently, Ms. Paltrow would like to convert to Juadiasm. As a Jew, can I just say, oy! Keep in mind it’s from the Daily Mail, so take it with a little bit of kosher salt. From The Daily Mail:
For years she has followed Kabbalah, which has its roots in the Jewish faith.
Now Gwyneth Paltrow is said to be ‘quietly converting’ to Judaism.
It was reported yesterday that the Hollywood actress, 41, has chosen to embrace the faith more closely following the break-up of her marriage to British singer Chris Martin this year.
The claim was made by the New York Post, which said Miss Paltrow was already raising her daughter Apple, ten, and son Moses, eight, in a Jewish setting after learning about her family history on the US version of the genealogy programme Who Do You Think You Are?.
Miss Paltrow discovered she came from a long line of influential East European rabbis.
Previously she has joked that she was a ‘Jewish princess’ after learning she had 17 generations of rabbis running through her family tree.
Oh she WOULD. She’s also said (via Fashion Times):
Oh my God, if you saw the amount of food that I do. I am the original Jewish mother. I make meals from these new recipes that look, smell and taste like the food I always cooked, but are also super healthy. That is an additional joy.
Girl, that doesn’t sound like ANY Jewish mother I know of. Jewish mothers don’t give a fuck about health content or count calories. They just eat and complain about the calories hours later. Duh.
Anyway, if this is what she wants, I wish her the best. L’chaim!
