Hot Jews

The very hot Jewish James Franco on the cover of GQ's "Men of the Year" issue

What a relief that there will not be any halachic dispute as to whether these Jewish hotties are, indeed, Jewish. We can all just kvell and shep some pop culture naches without worrying about inter-denominational drama.

Drake, Scarlett Johansson and James Franco (shout out to Palo Alto!) are all the products of intermarriages between Jews and non-Jews, but the fact that their mothers are the Jewish parent in each case, makes them kosher for even the most Orthodox of the tribe.

Jason Diamond wrote on Jewcy today:

“It’s taken us thousands of years to get here, but Jews can officially call themselves the culture that ‘dominates the shit’ out of Gentlemen’s Quarterly.  Three out of the five people picked for the iconic magazine’s “Men of the Year” issue are Members of the Tribe.

Drake – ‘Breakout of the Year’ (Jewish mom, African American dad)

Scarlett Johansson – ‘Babe of the Year’ (Jewish mom, Danish-born dad)

James Franco – ‘Leading Man of the Year’ (Jewish mom, dad is of Portuguese and Swedish descent)”
