Melissa Gilbert suffered a mild concussion on Dancing with the Stars after injuring herself during a paso doble Monday night. The actress, who was raised Jewish by her adoptive parents, is recovering and has returned to the show for a gentle rehearsal.
Gilbert says she will not be letting her injury hold her back, Tweeting, “Nobody puts Halfpint in the corner!” While her nickname from the television show Little House on the Prairie may have been Halfpint, her ability to get back into rehearsals is fully amazing!
Scarlett Johansson will be on the cover of Vogue magazine this May. In an interview with the magazine, the Jewish actress says she isn’t over her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds (even though she is seeing a new man, ad exec Nate Naylor.)
“I don’t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better,” she told Vogue regarding her divorce. The couple announced they were splitting in December 2010 and finalized the divorce that following July. “It’s still there. More than anything, it’s just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird.”
Nevertheless, Johansson says she finds life pretty good right now. And since she is starring in The Avengers (opening in May) and has a hot new guy by her side, we’re guessing she doesn’t feel any need to avenge any old relationships!
Larry David gets some traction in the new movie, The Three Stooges. The Farrelly Brothers’ remake of the famous flick about three brothers growing up together nyuk, nyuk, nyuking and finger-poking their way through misadventures opens today.
In the movie, Larry David plays a mean nun named Sister Mary-Mengele. David is one of the few Jewish stars in this film, though the real Curly, Larry and Moe were Jewish… and total wiseguys!
