Jewish Celebrity Roundup

Joan Rivers’ plastic surgery meter

You know how sometimes you’re watching TV and all of a sudden Joan Rivers appears and someone always says, “Man, she’s probably had over 500 plastic surgeries!” Believe it or not, the number is actually higher: 739!

In an interview with the Australian Daily Telegraph, Rivers, 78, admitted that having plastic surgery for her is kind of like going to Starbucks for others, except that the coffee at the clinic is probably better. “Every weekend I just go in and I do something new. I get a 10th one free,” Rivers said. “It’s a little like coffee; you just keep going.”

Rivers and daughter Melissa are currently appearing in a new reality TV show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best on the We network.

By the way, in case anyone is contemplating trying to keep up with Rivers, at a rate of one surgical procedure a week, it should take a little more than 14 years to reach 739.

Joan Rivers Joan Rivers Parker in for Moore in ‘Lovelace’

The very troubled Demi Moore reportedly has dropped out of filming for Lovelace, a movie about the Deep Throat porn star Linda Lovelace. And who’s taking over? Why, if it isn’t Sarah Jessica Parker.

Parker was photographed recently on the Lovelace set dressed as feminist leader Gloria Steinem (Demi’s original role). Producers reportedly courted Parker after Moore dropped out and now will star in the film alongside Amanda Seyfried as the title character.

Brangelina at U.S. Holocaust Museum

On a recent trip to Washington, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided to swing by the U.S. Holocaust Museum to promote Angelina’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which premiered in theaters in December and is scheduled to be out on video in April.

Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie The couple specifically went to tour the “From Memory to Action” exhibition on genocide, which includes the massacre in Srebrenica featured in her movie.

“I’m having trouble even speaking about it because I spent half an hour in this room, where I did my best not to look at the walls and read everything because it was reminding me so much of everything I learned in the process of this film and all the beautiful people that I met that survived,” Jolie told the Washington Examiner. “It’s quite heavy.”

Israel’s Channel 10 also had the chance to catch up with the couple, who told the news station that they were “very interested” in going to Israel and learning more about the conflict there.

“There’s no good reason I haven’t been [to Israel],” Jolie said.
