The Kid-Dish: Zuckerberg’s Intermarriage, Gyllenhaal’s Hippie Seders

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

– Billionaire babies may be in the future for Mark Zuckerberg, who surprised the world–and also maybe his family–with getting married the day after Facebook went public. The Sisterhood notes the other surprise: nobody’s really talking about the fact that it’s an intermarriage. (Forward)

– Also from the Forward, an interview with Maggie Gyllenhaal, who stars in the upcoming movie Hysteria (a comedy about the birth of the vibrator in Victorian England!). Gyllenhaal talks about growing up with hippie seders and ordering food from Russ & Daughters on Christmas. (Forward)

Apple and Moses Martin are now officially cooler than me because they went to a Jay-Z and Kanye West concert in London and Apple, 8 years old, even has pink hair. I will deduct two cool points for showing up with their mom, though. I mean, lame, right? (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Alicia Silverstone is back in the news, though this time it’s a lot less controversial: she has developed her own line of eco-friendly makeup and skincare products. From her video interview on Juice Beauty: “I don’t want it to hurt the planet, and I don’t want it to hurt animals. But then I want it to be amazing! And delicious!” (LilSugar)
