The 54 Hottest Jewish Male Celebrities

August 27, 2018  


By: Solve Israel’s Problems Staff

Israel is a land of epic beauty and achievements, including its spirituality, technology, and cutting edge medical research. Not to mention Israel’s most indigenous attraction of all — its people.

Home to some of the sexiest men and women on the planet, it’s no wonder that much of Israel’s population is Jewish. Just like in Israel, Jewish men and women around the globe are known for alluring, dark, and delicious features — not to mention their heavenly bodies.

The best thing about Jewish men, in particular? They only get funnier, more confident, and better with age.

Whether a star on the rise or one who stands the test of time …

Here is a list of the 54 hottest Jewish male celebrities over 30.

The methodology behind our ranking: A pretty face and a banging body is nice, but scoring a spot on this epic lineup requires true talent. Bonus points for a sense of humor and strong influence on popular culture.

54. Craig David, 37


English singer, Craig David is HUGE in the UK, with 7 Top 40 albums and 20 Top 40 singles, selling over 15 million records worldwide.

While Craig’s maternal grandfather was an Orthodox Jew, Craig’s insane body is anything but traditional. Though we’re pretty sure it’s 100% kosher.

53. Adam Brody, 38


As Seth Cohen on the television show, “The O.C.,” Adam Brody will forever be the sexiest Jewish geek on TV.

52. Justin Kirk, 49


Justin is best known for his role as Andy Botwin on TV’s “Weeds,” in which he carried a torch for his sister-in-law, Nancy, played by Mary Louise Parker, while helping her sell marijuana.

At the end of the series, Andy rejects MLP’s plea to be a permanent fixture in her life — allowing Kirk to go out on a real high.

51. Ben Foster, 37


We fell in love with Foster as Warren Worthington III in “X-Men: The Last Stand,” in which he played an angel with AMAZING wings … and a body to match.

50. Jesse Eisenberg, 34


His portrayal of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network” earned Jesse tons of best actor nominations, but he’s definitely WINNING when it comes to the Jewish trifecta —sweet, smart, AND sexy!

49. Hank Azaria, 54


We’ll never forget when Hank Azaria first came along in “Along Came Polly,” sporting nothing more than a banana hammock, killer six-pack, and the perfect island tan with which to steal Debra Messing away from Ben Stiller.

The actor, who solidified his spot in popular culture as Phoebe’s geeky boyfriend on TV’s “Friends,” has since struck it RICH doing various voices for “The Simpsons.”

48. Jason Schwartzman, 38


Born the son of actress, Talia Shire, the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, with Nicholas Cage and Sophia Coppola as cousins, it’s safe to say stardom runs in Schwartzman’s family.

We’ve had a big crush on Jason since he co-starred in the TV series, “Bored to Death,” in which his charm, wit, and zany personality was anything BUT boring.

47. Adrian Brody, 45

At age 29, Brody was the youngest actor to win an Oscar for his role in Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist.” We’ve had our eye’s peeled on television’s “Peaky Blinders” star ever since.

46. Jon Favreau, 51


These days Favreau is a big time writer/director of mega-movies like “Iron Man,” but our crush started with his breakout role in the cult classic film,“ Swingers,” where he was so money and he didn’t even know it.

45. Jack Antonoff, 34

bonnaroo-2015_shaltz_day-3-1422-640x427 (1).jpgLena-Dunham-posed-her-boyfriend-Jack-Antonoff-ahead.jpg

Three-time Grammy Award winner, Jack Antonoff is best known as the lead singer of “Bleachers,” and as lead guitarist of the indie rock band, “Fun.” Though pop culture aficionados likely think of him most fondly as the ex-boyfriend of female super-Jew, Lena Dunham.

44. Jack Black, 48

The Golden Globe-nominated actor played the looks-obsessed jerk , ”Shallow Hal,” who’s hypnotized by Tony Robbins only to discover beauty comes from within, thus falling for an obese Gwyneth Paltrow.

Fast forward to present day … Paltrow’s never been thinner and Black — whether shallow or not, has moved beyond babes onto animals. As the title character, Po in the “Kung Fu Panda” film franchise, Black voiced his way straight to the bank. Kaching.

43. Josh Radnor, 43


Best known for portraying Ted Mosby on the TV sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother,” we’d happily introduce him to one of our Jewish mothers any day of the week.

42. Sacha Baron Cohen, 46



The English actor is famous for playing characters with accents and guises, most notably Ali G and Borat. No matter whom he might be impersonating on any given day, we love Sacha unconditionally.

41. Judd Apatow, 50


The insanely-talented producer of epic TV comedies like “Freaks and Geeks,” “Girls,” and “Crashing” also directed films like “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” and “Knocked Up. ” Not to mention Judd also produced our absolute favorite movie of all time, “Bridesmaids.”

Judd’s most significant contribution to the world of entertainment is likely playing the role of patriarch in a family full of rising stars. Launching the careers of comedians like Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segal makes Apatow a cultivator of certified Jewish gems.

40. Jon Stewart, 55

fd2d40d79366300aa35dff66531c7cba.jpg 600full-jon-stewart.jpg

The TV personality turned host uses his sarcastic sense of humor to cover politics and other news stories. How’s this for a story? … Jon was born the son of Ashkenazi Jews, originally named … wait for it … Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz!

39. Skyler Astin, 30


Imagine if you were an up and coming actor waiting for your big break when you got this perfect pitch: Play a leading role in the biggest movie of your career and while filming, you’ll meet and fall head over heels for the love of your life.

That’s the story behind Skyler Astin playing Jesse Swanson in “Pitch Perfect,” which led to him marrying his uber-talented co-star, Ana Camp. Wonder if Ana considered taking his real last name — so she’d be Mrs. Skyler Astin Lipstein?!

38. Ben Stiller, 52


The son of veteran comedians, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara first got our attention in the classic 90s film, “Reality Bites,” opposite talented Jewess, Winona Ryder. He kept it with hilarious hits like “Zoolander,” and “Something About Mary.” There’s definitely something (seriously sexy) about Ben Stiller.

37. Adam Sandler, 51


The 3 BILLION dollar-grossing movie actor made us even prouder to be Jews with his original Hanukah song, by shoving our most basic holiday advantage in the rest of the world’s faces. “Instead of one day of presents, we have “eight crazy nights!”

36. Andy Samberg, 39


The star of TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” first got Hollywood’s attention by starring in his own YouTube comedy sketches. Networks took notice and Samberg scored the ultimate dream job for a hilarious Jew — a role on Saturday Night Live.

35. Andy Cohen, 50


We certainly don’t discriminate against Andrew Cohen, the first openly gay host of an American late-night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live.”

The pop culture icon not only helped build the Bravo network into a cable TV superpower, but managed to do so without letting his work ethic get in the way of his workout regime. Bravo, Andy, looking good!

34. Eli Roth, 46


Roth began shooting his own scary movies at the age of eight, using his father’s power tools and ketchup for blood. Today, Eli’s known for his work on high-grossing Horror films like, “Cabin Fever,” and “Hostel.”

Yet we insist there’s nothing scary about Eli Roth — or the Jewish blood that runs through his veins.

33. Seth Rogen, 38


The Canadian movie star famous for making you laugh your tookis off in films like “Knocked Up,” ”and “Superbad,” is the son of Jewish parents who met on kibbutz Beit Alfa in Israel.

So Seth’s not only hilarious and adorable, he (practically) has Israeli blood running through his veins!

32. Mark Feuerstein, 47


As Dr. Hank Lawson on the TV series, “Royal Pains,”

Feuerstein played an eligible Jewish doctor who makes house calls to wealthy clientele. Say it with me: ‘Perfect… Husband … Material.’

31. Jeff Goldblum, 65


The actor who first got us all warm inside in “The Big Chill,” kept us hot and bothered with his lead roles in International blockbusters like, “Jurassic Park,” and, “Independence Day.” Better with age, my friends… better with age.

30. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 37


Born to parents who were among the founders of the Progressive Jewish Alliance, Joseph’s role oppositie Zooey Deschanel in “500 Days of Summer,” was all it took for us to hop on the JGL bandwagon.

And we’re not getting off anytime soon — off of the wagon, that is.

29. Scott Caan, 41


The son of tough guy actor, James Caan, Scott co-starred in TV’s “Entourage,” as a Lavin, the douche-bag agent we loved to hate.

Plus, he’s always been a man of the people. Whenever Scott has a scene in which only the women are scripted to be nude, in true feminist fashion, Caan strips too. So everybody wins!

28.Bryan Greenberg, 40

2984ce1e06bac784ead02af929f7fc7e (1).jpg


Bryan first stood out as Uma Thurman’s love interest in “Prime,” but it was his swagger in TV’s “How to Make It in America,” that made us his fans forever.

27. Dave Franco, 33


The kin of older and bigger celeb brother, James Franco, Dave’s made his mark in Hollywood alongside his bro and other superstars like Seth Rogan and Vince Vaughn. Dave says he is “proud” to be Jewish, and we’re just as proud to feature him on this list.

26. Robert Downey Jr., 53


Once a celebrity bad boy, actor Robert Downey Jr. cleaned up his act and revamped his career, topping the Forbes list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors – particularly as the invincible, “Iron Man.”

25. Zach Israel Braff, 43


Raised in a Conservative family, Zach Braff stole our hearts when he wrote, directed, and starred in the low-budget Rom-Com, “Garden State,” which later exploded into a cult classic.

In the movie, Zach’s character falls in love with fellow magnificent Jew, Natalie Portman, and we’ve LOVED Zach Braff ever since.

24.Andrew Garfield, 34

The British-American actor known worldwide for his role as “The Amazing Spiderman,” is definitely our (super) hero!

23. David Duchovny, 57


We loved the Golden Globe winning TV actor as FBI agent, Fox Mulder on “The X-Files” and fell head over heels for him as the complicated, irresistible Hank Moody on “Californication.”

Under no circumstances do we wish to resist David Duchovny.

22. Drake, 31


The Canadian, Grammy Award winning (Bar Mitzvahed) musician released his “Thank Me Later” album in 2006, but we were thankful for Drake IMMEDIATELY.

21. Jason Segal, 38


We fell hard for Jason as a heartbroken, hilarious dude on the mend in, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Spoiler alert: The comedian has long since moved on from Sarah Marshall, but we’ll never get over Jason Segal.

20. Noah Wyle, 47


We haven’t stopped crushing on Wyle since he played Dr. John Carter on the TV medical TV drama, ER.” As far as this list goes, the doctor is IN!

19.Lenny Kravitz


Funky American singer/ songwriter, Lenny Kravitz was born in New York, the son of a Bahamian/African American actress and a Jewish TV news producer. The Grammy award winner is famous for his rock-hard body and for being a ROCK STAR period.

18. Michael Vartan, 49


French-American actor, Michael Vartan is best known for playing agent Michael Vaughn on the hit TV series, “Alias,” and more recently as Terence Anderson on “The Arrangement.” Vartan considers himself a polish Jew “who just happened to be born in France.”

17. Paul Rudd, 49


You may have first noticed actor Paul Rudd for being “Clueless,” but the man now famous for hits like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” never had us fooled. We’ve always been clued in to the fact that he’s one seriously sexy Jew.

16. Josh Charles, 46


We’ve adored this Jewish hottie ever since he played Knox Overstreet in “Dead Poet’s Society,” but became obsessed with him as Will Gardner on “The Good Wife,” in which he tended to be oh so bad.

15. Joaquin Phoenix, 43


Grammy, Academy, and Golden Globe Award winning actor, Joaquin was born the son of a Jewish mother and was the brother of rising star, River Phoenix, who died tragically from a drug overdose at 23.

Joaquin tends to star as insecure, conflicted, characters easily manipulated by beautiful women, like Nicole Kidman in, “To Die For.” We totally die for Joaquin!

14. Justin Bartha, 39


Known for his roles in both “The National Treasure” and “The Hangover” films, Justin Bartha has sealed the deal as one of our all time favorites with his latest role on the TV series, “ The Good Fight.” Oh, how we’d fight for Bartha!

13. Shia LaBeouf, 32


Born the son of a Christian father and a Jewish mother, Shia, who is best known for playing Sam Witwicky in the “Transformers” movies, was raised around “both sides,” yet considers himself Jewish.

And we consider Shia a major score for the tribe.

12. Chris Pine, 37


A 1/4 Russian Jewish from his maternal grandfather, Chris became an international star as James T. Kirk in the giant franchise reboot, “Star Trek.” But it’s no wonder we became obsessed with Pine opposite Israeli superstar, Gal Gadot in, “Wonder Woman.”

11. Adam Levine, 39


What’s a nice Jewish boy like Adam Levine doing with all these tattoos?

This self-proclaimed “mellow Jew” has been tatted up from an early age, but the minute Adam sings a note, even nice Jewish girls like me forget all about his ink.

10. James Franco, 40

::::Desktop:jamesfranco (1).jpg

James Franco first caught our attention playing a high school stoner on TV’s “Freaks and Geeks,” but won Hollywood over as a homeless drug addict in Robert De Niro’s, “City By the Sea.”

James has since earned super-celeb status starring alongside Seth Rogan, Richard Gere, and Sean Penn — picking up a few Golden Globe Awards along the way. Yet the real Golden Globe here is James Franco’s beautiful punim — certainly NOT a face only a mother could love.

9. James Wolk, 33

::::Desktop:james wolk shirtless.png::::Desktop:69085_ppl.jpg

We adored James for his role as smoking hot account executive, Bob Benson on “Mad Men,” but what we really love is this: as a teenager back in his hometown of Michigan, James worked as an emcee at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. Mozel Tov!

8. Joshua Bowman, 30

:window-2 (1).jpg

Born the son of a Jewish father, the English actor best known for his role as Daniel Grayson on the TV series, “Revenge” reportedly feels “Jewish-ISH,” and that’s good enough for us!

7. Ben Barnes, 36


The English actor is most famous for his starring role as Prince Caspian in two “Chronicles of Narnia” films. In the second movie, Barnes became King, and we’ve been bowing down to him ever since.

6. Jake Gyllenhaal, 37


Benjamin Jake Gyllenhaal is known for his amazing performances as deep, dark, yet heroic men in films like “Jarhead,” “Brokeback Mountain,” and “Donnie Darko.”

What’s sexier than a deep, dark Gyllenhaal? Absolutely nothing.

5. Liev Schreiber, 50

::::Desktop:IMG_4257 (1).jpg

As conflicted family man and problem fixer, Ray Donovan on HBO’s hit series, he does the dirty work to make the difficulties of Hollywood’s power players disappear.

Liev is more than welcome to fix our problems — with his dirty, dirty work — anytime.

4. David Beckham, 43


The famous footballer, who considers himself half Jewish, is known for his athleticism and marriage to singer, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.

There’s a lot to love about Beckham, who was recently named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine — but it’s his banging body that really makes us swoon.

3. Zac Efron, 30


First discovered by pre-teen girls worldwide for his pure vanilla roles in films like, “High School Musical,” and “Hair Spray,” Zac’s since shed his Disney kid image by starring opposite Seth Rogen in the adult comedy, “Neighbors.”

Oh how we’d love to be Zac Efron’s neighbor!

2. Eric Dane, 45

spl117949_006 (2).jpg:dc19c3eca5ae5bb7a30cf12a00006a41 (1).jpg

As Dr. Mark Sloan on the medical TV drama, “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dane undoubtedly earned his nickname, “McSteamy,” because there is nothing steamier than Eric Dane just out of the shower, soaking wet, in an oh-so-loosely tied towel.

1. Gabriel Macht, 46


Born in the Bronx, New York and later raised in California, Gabriel went to Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts, where he was a member of the Jewish fraternity, Delta Upsilon.

As Harvey Specter on TV’s “Suits,” Macht plays a powerful lawyer with a monumental fear of commitment. But that didn’t stop us from committing to put Gabriel at the tippy-top of our list.
