    Paul Newman

    Jew Score:



    January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008

    We would gladly take (half of) Paul Newman, the actor. His best-known work might have come before our time, but what we've seen of it, as well as his later films, makes us proud to have (half of) one of the most famous leading men of American cinema.

    And we would definitely take (half of) Paul Newman, the businessman. Be it salad dressing or lemonade, the fact that 100% of the profits are donated to charities, makes us even more proud to have (half of) him.

    And we don't even have to settle for that half. Newman, half-Jewish by birth, chose to self-identify as Jewish, "because it's more of a challenge".

    And his salsa is delicious. Now, if he could only create Newman's Own Matzah Balls, we'd be all set.

    Verdict: Jew.
