Over the past few decades, several actresses have ruled the roost in Hollywood and world cinema, in general. Although some of the legendary actresses are no more in the business, their charisma and acting prowess has made them favorites even in today’s times. Several women of Jewish descent have impressed movie buffs in the past few years with their gorgeous looks and insane talent. Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Amanda Peet, Gwyneth Paltrow and Goldie Hawn are a few such actresses who are popular among the masses. These women have often proved they can play any character effortlessly. In the 2006 blockbuster ‘Blood Diamond’, Jennifer Connelly’s portrayal of a journalist in a war torn Sierra Leone is probably one of the reasons why the movie is considered a modern day classic. Here are more details about Jewish actresses.
