1.  Maggie Gyllenhaal Is Thinking Pink!

Maggie Gyllenhaal and her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, will welcome their second daughter in late spring! The actress, whose mother is Jewish, admitted to USA Today that she kept her growing belly a secret for months!

“I find it difficult to pretend you’re not pregnant, which I had to do. I didn’t let anyone know until three and a half months this time,” the Hysteria star said. We find it funny that it was hard for an actress to pretend, but wish the famous duo the best!

 

2.  Segel Soars In The Love Department

Jason Segel has a new leading lady. The Jewish actor has been spotted with Michelle Williams several times over the last few weeks.

People magazine reported that the two met through Williams’s best pal (and Segel’s former Freaks and Geeks costar) Busy Philipps. The magazine adds that in a cryptic Tweet posted March 5, the actor wrote, “If I fell in love would you guys be happy?” The Tweet has since been taken down, but if Segel is reading this, yes, it would make us happy if you fell in love!

 

3.  Unrated Bully

When it comes to his new movie, Bully, Harvey Weinstein is standing up to what he may believe is a bully of his own, the Motion Picture Association of America! Weinstein’s studio, The Weinstein Company, announced this week that it will release the documentary unrated, rather than accept the MPAA’s controversial R rating for Bully.

The MPAA gave the film an R rating because of what it calls, “strong language.” The documentary opens in New York and Los Angeles theaters today. Weinstein, who is Jewish, argued that the movie warranted the more lenient PG-13 rating since every curse word in the film is uttered by an adolescent bully… caught in the act of bullying!
