NEW YORK (JTA) – Israel next week will welcome its first big-name American visitor since Barack Obama.
OK, so this time it’s the star of “Two And A Half Men” and not the ruler of the free world, but Ashton Kutcher equals pretty exciting stuff.
The Kabbalah-practicing actor will bring his Jewish girlfriend, actress Mila Kunis, a/k/a the Sexiest Woman in the World (see item below), according to the Times of Israel.
Kutcher has visited the Holy Land before, the last time in 2010 with then-wife and fellow Kabbalah devotee Demi Moore.
Park named for Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch
New York City honored the late rapper Adam Yauch, MCA of the Beastie Boys, by bestowing his name on a Brooklyn playground. The park, formerly called Palmetto Playground, is just a couple of blocks from where the musician grew up.
At the dedication ceremony last week, speakers included bandmate Adam Horovitz (a/k/a Ad-Rock); Yauch’s parents, Frances and Noel, and Borough President Marty Markowitz, who rapped his own version of the Beastie Boys’ “Open Letter to NYC,” according to USA Today.
Mila Kunis, world’s sexiest woman
FHM magazine put Mila Kunis at the top of its annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World list. The super classy publication (tagline: “It’s great to be a man”) praises her work on “That ’70s Show,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and Black Swan,” in which, we are reminded, Kunis “played tonsil-hockey” with Natalie Portman.
