Jewish Celebrities Top Forbes’ Highest-Paid Actors List

Forbes recently released the names of the 10 actors who receive the heftiest paychecks from June 2012 through June 2013. Unlike the Celebrity 100 list, this ranking solely focuses on income and has nothing to do with how much or little an actor is in the spotlight. Thus, the oft-indifferent Robert Downey Jr. has landed the number one spot. After becoming the highest paid person on set of 2012’s “The Avengers,” as well as the recent success of “Iron Man 3,” Downey earned $75 million …More

Famous, rich and powerful people want to pray, too. Below are a few of the places where they do just that. Temple Israel of Hollywood: This deceptively modest looking synagogue, located …More

Time to fact check Adam Sandler’s “Hannukah Song” – Rod Carew admits he’s not a Jew! In an interview with TMZ.com, Carew said, “I was about to convert and I never did. I think Adam found out about it.” Of course Sandler found out about it, and let the rest of the world know in the notorious line “O.J.

'Grown Ups 2' Smells a Little Funky

Adam Sandler’s new film, “Grown Ups 2,” is causing a stink in Massachusetts after skunks invaded the set. The movie crew built a sound stage in the North Shore region of the state, and have been pestered by skunks ever since. Apparently, they disturbed the skunk’s natural habitat, as they have now decided to live in a group of trees planted for the film. And according to local animal control officer Diane Treadwell, the skunks are also thieves. She told the Boston Herald that the skunks …More

Sandler recently came in tied for second place on the new Forbes list of highest-paid Hollywood actors. He and Leonardo DiCaprio trail only Tom Cruise in the Top 100. Between May 2011 and May 2012, Sandler earned approximately $37 million, which may boggle some minds considering the funnyman’s most recent contributions to cinema …More

As if “That’s My Boy” didn’t look unfunny enough—featuring a return to the classic and grating Adam Sandler juvenile voice—Funny or Die had to go and cut a new trailer that is even unfunny-er. The upside? The new version is only one minute long. The conceit is stunningly stupid. Andy Samberg appears on screen, displaying the same level of discomfort that he enjoys in the film itself, and explains that he’s taken it upon himself to cut a trailer for “That’s …More
