I ask this question in light of recent survey results of Jews in the UK who were asked which celebrity Jew they would most like to go on a date with. Jewish English women it seems have particularly odd tastes in man meat. Number 1 on their list was David Schwimmer, the former Friends star who hasn’t really done dick since the insipid sitcom mercifully ended it’s 10 year run 2 years ago. The number 2 choice was Sacha Baron Cohen who’s latest Borat movie was certainly successful… but do you really wanna date him that badly? Other Jewish sex symbols include Seinfeld co-creator, head writer and executive producer Larry David (I dare you to think of him in his underwear without hurling), Henry Winkler (The Fonz!), 60 year-old billionaire philanthropist Sir Alan Sugar, Zach Braff (who?) and actor and Ali G/Borat percusor Paul Kaye (click on the link to see Dennis Pennis of the BBC do his thing). The last two guys on the list are at least somewhat conventionally handsome – British politician Ed Miliband and Israeli soccer player Tal Ben Haim (although Tal could do with a tweezer to the unibrow).
And who do the men want to date? Number one on their list was
slutty sultry Jazz singer Amy Winehouse whose videos we recently featured on Jewlicious. Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Rachel Weisz and to a certain extent Gwyneth Paltrow (who isn’t Jewish) were obvious choices. The rest of the choices were English women including Abi Finlay, an American Idol for Musical Theatre participant, Caprice Bourret, a model-slash-actress (you know what that means), Natasha Kaplinsky a co-anchor for the BBC news, Lucie Silvas, a singer and songwriter of the AOR variety (I’m sure The Middle would think she was fabulous) and Nigella Lawson, a sexually provocative, middle-aged journalist who is married to Charles Saatchi and runs a cooking show.
We covered the last quarterly poll and it seems singer Peaches and porn star Ron Jeremy have been voted off the dating Island as well as KISS frontman Gene Simmons (who it turns out really is a nice guy).
OK. I’m done.
