HERITAGE FLORIDA J EWlSH NEWS, JANUARY 6, 2012 6 degrees (no Bacon): Jewish celebrity roundup Marguiles on parenting NEW YORK (6nobacon. corn) mSo apparently it stinks to be Julianna Marguiles' kid. "The Good Wife" star says that she won't allow her son, Kieran, who's turning 4 next month, get any birthday pres- ents from his friends. Terrible, right? Well, according to SheK-, Marguiles "wants her young son to understand that his life of wealth and privilege is extremely unusual, so she makes him give a ton of his stuff away and doesn't let anyone buy him birthday presents." A nice way to introduce the kid to being humble and giving, but no presents[? How awful! He is still a kid, you know. He doesn't have to own those mini Cadillac Escalade cars to understand how charity works. Perhaps that's being too materialistic, but it's the holiday season after all, and while some think about car- ing and giving, others think about getting presents and enjoying them. Marguiles also makes sure her son donates his old clothes to Room to Grow, which is a foundation for underprivileged children in the city. Very nice, Julianna. Here's hoping the kid turns out to be nice and generous like you want and not one of those kids who steals Christmas gifts from their friends because their momwon't letthem own anything. Jews chasing Globes The Jews, as they are wont to do, cleaned up with Golden Globe nominations. Woody Allen garnered best director and best screenplay nomina- tions for "Midnight in Paris," which was also nominated for best comedy. "Moneyball" was nominated for best drama and got Aaron Sorkin a best screenplay nomination and Jonah Hill a best supporting actor nomination. The Steven Spielberg-produced "The Ad- ventures of Tintin" is in the running for best animated feature. Jason Segal, unfortunately, failed to garner a nomination for his bravura performance depicting a man torn by a hyphenated identity in "The Muppets," and while "The Artist" was nominated for best drama, it failed to garner a nomination for "Best Film to Depict Early Hollywood Without a Single Explicitly Jewish Character." The awards ceremony will be Jan. 15. Damon and Johansson in Chanukah special Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson star in an MTV Chanukah special, "We Shovel Poo." In this MTV behind-the- scenes show, Josh Horowitz asks the stars of "We Bought a Zoo" a few questions about what it means to be a Jew. While Matt stunk in a very adorable way (look at his upset face when he gives the wrong Barbra Streisand movie! Aww...), Scarlett is clearly the winner here. She throws out gefilte fish as a Jew- ish delicacy, knows that Mayim Bialik is now a rabbi, and "ehhh"s when Horowitz asks Wikipedia Aaron Sorkin, pictured here speaking at the Oxford Union in 2009, was nomi- nated for a best screenplay Golden Globe for 'Moneyball : if she thinks that Gwyneth Paltrow is really Jewish. Twilight writer becomes highest-grossing female screenwriter ever We all know the stars of the "Tvilight" series: Kristin "goth hottie" Stewart, Rob- ert "insane bone structure" Pattinson, Taylor "Native my American any day" Lautner. But it seems like we have for- gotten the greatest star of all, who's only getting the credit she deserves now. That is Melissa Rosenberg, writer of the "Twilight" mov- ies, who was recently named the highest-grossing female screenwriter of all time. This tribe member may be raking in the big bucks with her blockbuster hits, but the previous No. 1 female screen- writer, Linda Wooiverton, is hot on her heels. Woolverton penned such Disney classics as "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King," and with the looming release of "Beauty and the Beast 3D," Rosenberg's crown could be snatched. Matisyahu loses beard, then manners Maybe he is the anti-Goliath and the beard kept him meek and calm? Whatever it may be, a fresh-faced Matisyahu reportedly attacked a pho- tographer during his show at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg this week. "At first I assumed he was trying to crowd surf, that he wasn't deliberately trying to step on me," said photogra- pher Rebecca Smeyene, "but when I got up, he was in the middle of the audience. When I turned to look at him, he charged at me." No charges were pressed, but the Jewish rapper's man- agement team did give Smey- ene some Benjamins to cover damages to her equipment, and Matisyahu did direct a not-so-sincere Twitter apology to the photographer. "sorry about last night. I totally snapped. I wouldn't call it a kick, more like stepping into the crowd," he tweeted. He later followed up with another tweet to the photographer: "seemed like you were there everywhere I turnedwith that flash. Next time be more sensi- tive to the performer." Gee whiz[ What happened to the cuddle bear Chasid we all used to know and love? Sacha Baron Cohen's alter ego mourns Kim Jong II In true"Borat" fashion, Sa- sha Baron Cohen has decided to release a statement about PAGE 11. a, Single Jewish Female . ISeeks Male Looking for Marnagel Kim Jong II's death.., as the main character from his new movie, "The Dictator." The statement, which was faxed to The Huffington Post, reads as follows: "I am sad- dened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Kim Jong-II. Our thoughts go out to his wife and 813 children. 'K-Jo' was a great leader, good friend and average double's badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3-inch lifts. An extraordi- nary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout the world. On behalf of myself, Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Newt Gingrich, we would like to welcome his son, Kim Jon-Un into the 'Axis of Evil.'" Judging Howard Stern The future judge is be- ing judged, as NBC is being condemned by the Parents Television Council for hiring Howard Stern to replace Piers Morgan on "America's Got Talent." The Parents Television Council released a statement calling NBC's decision to hire Stern "an act of despera- tion" and said that the radio personality "is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity." The statement concluded: "The once-proud broadcast network has lost its way and has made it clear it holds no concern whatsoever for chil- dren and families." Stiller's service to Haiti Ben Stiller recently an- nounced that he will be building eight schools in Haiti with the money raised by his charity, The Stiller Founda- tion. After the earthquake in 2010, the comedian started his organization to help raise money to rebuild Haiti. Stiller announced that he signed an agreement with the Digi- cel Foundation to build the schools, after he visited the impoverished country. Facebook vs. 'Mark Zuck- erberg' Israeli "entrepeneur" Rotem Guez is being sued by Facebook for creating a "Like Store" where businesses can buy fake "likes" for their Facebook pages. In a move that, to be kind, very few people would have envisioned, Guez legally changed his name to "Mark Zuckerberg" in what will pos- sibly be the basis for the sequel to "Face/Off." "Iwanted that once they sue me, they'll face suing 'Mark Zuckerberg,'" the former Guez said, according emails ob- tained by The Huffington Post. Garland for Guttenberg Steve Guttenberg of "The Boys From Brazil," "Three Men and a Baby" and "Po- lice Academy" received the 2,455th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Guttenberg arrived, fittingly, in an LAPD cruiser, honoring his "Police Academy" days. Guttenberg has been slight- ly under the radar lately, although he did make a short appearance on "Dancing With the Stars" in 2008 before get- ting voted off. A "Three Men and a Baby" sequel, titled "Three Men and a Bride" is currently in the works andwili feature Gutten- berg along with Tom Selleck and Ted Danson.
