Bar Refaeli Tops Maxim’s Hot 100 List

May 22, 2012

This post first appeared on The Shmooze blog at the Forward.

Men say they appreciate the inner beauty of a woman, but it’s the outer kind that carries the day on Maxim’s new list of the world’s 100 hottest women. It is also evident that for this Maxim’s audience, beauty goes hand in hand with youth. Some of these women are awfully young, but thankfully there’s no jailbait on the list.

For some oglers — we mean, readers — it may be difficult to spot the Jewesses among all the pouting lips, super-deep cleavages and come-hither looks. Not so for the Shmooze. We’ve identified more than a handful of Jewish women who made the cut. The hottest among them is Bar Refaeli, who comes in at the very top spot on the list. In fact, that must be the reason she appearsclose to naked in the Maxim photo shoot — when you’re that hot, you might just feel the need to shed your clothes.

First came news that on April 27, actor Dustin Hoffman, 74, saved the life of a London jogger who had gone into cardiac arrest. Hoffman, who owns a home in Kensington, was walking in Hyde Park when he saw lawyer Sam Dempster, 27, staggering and frothing at the mouth before falling forward and hitting his face on the pavement. Hoffman reportedly turned Dempster onto his back, which opened his airway, and called 999 (equivalent to our 911) from his cell phone.

Popchips: Racist, But Kosher?

May 3, 2012

Kutcher as “Darl,” with Poo-poo

Popchips execs didn’t have cultural sensitivity in mind when they had Ashton Kutcher (with brown-face make-up and a sing-song Indian accent) comically portray a Bollywood producer named Raj in the company’s latest advertising video. The commercial has been yanked and Popchips has apologized to the Indian-American community for its $1.5 million misstep.

The offending Popchips ad banks on the newly single Ashton Kutcher’s buzzed-about status in pop culture, placing him in a mock “World Wide Lovers Dating Service” viral video. If things don’t work out with Mila Kunis (that is, if there really is anything to work out), Kutcher will have to jump back into the dating scene sooner or later, right?
