A couple of nights ago, the brightest stars in Hollywood congregated for a major event: James Franco’s Bar Mitzvah. A couple things are wrong with that sentence. First of all, when you think of a high-profile Hollywood party, you rarely think of a Bar Mitzvah. It’s just usually not mentioned in the same vain as “Hollywood fundraiser” or “Hollywood yacht party”. Secondly, a Bar Mitzvah, in the Jewish culture, is usually to represent a 13 year old boy becoming a man. James Franco, is 37. Finally, I find this odd because after some snooping around James Franco’s Wikipedia page, I came to learn that he’s already, in fact, Jewish. You would assume that he’s already had this initiation celebration earlier in his life. Regardless of its credibility, this Hilarity For Charity event was for a good cause, so I have no real qualms with it.
Another reason why I love this event so much, is because Miley Cyrus was there. Miley really did herself up for this one, donning a blue leotard (and a gold cape with the words “SHALOM Y'ALL” on the back) and repping the Jewish star with pride. I don’t think Miley is Jewish, or her dad would be the first ever Jewish man with the name Billy Ray.
