Actress Jessica Biel aka Mrs Justin Timberlake recently appeared on TLC series Who Do You Think You Are?
On the show, she discovers her ancestors were Jewish, which is apparently a huge surprise to her.
From the JC:
In the latest episode of the American version of the Who Do You Think You Are genealogy show, the star of TheIllusionist and the A-Team discovered that her surname came from her great-great-grandparents. Morris and Ottilia Biel were Jewish immigrants who arrived in America from the Austro-Hungarian empire in the 1880s.
Ms Biel, who is married to pop-singer Justin Timberlake, said that she was “really interested into diving into this Jewish culture a little more”.
“My friends are really into this”, she said.
“They say they’re going to throw me a barmitzvah.”
Maybe she just knew after all.
