Settling the Score: Winona Ryder

We didn't realize this, so thanks to Mark from Hartford for pointing out that Winona Ryder is only half-Jewish (see here, among other places). She self-identifies as Jewish, so we'll keep her verdict as is, but the birth history will dock her an I point...

Thanks, Mike!


  1. Gloria Steinem is also only half Jewish.

  2. Oh, and Sergei Eisenstein is only quarter (paternal grandfather, who was an Orthodox convert).

  3. Wikipedia's article on Rachel Weisz makes it clear she is at least 3/4 Jewish. Looks like the mystery is clearing up.
