You probably know quite a few famous actors, musicians and celebrities that are Jewish. But in addition to those you know, there are dozens more stars that you had no idea were Jewish. While all of these people may not be observant anymore, these 15 stars all grew up in a Jewish household or had Jewish parents. The star in the number 10 spot is surely one you would never expect.
