Judaism. "I had to learn how to not
use the word schmuck,'" she said by
way of example.
Then there was the Rosh Hashanah
dinner for 20 guests she prepared as
her mother-in-law guided her by
phone from New Jersey. "I hung up
before she told me what to do with
the gefilte fish, but as I'd been cook-
ing for two days, I was feeling all con-
fident, and I figured, I'll just pop
them in the oven for 20 minutes, —
she said.
"My guests laughed hysterically that
I not only cooked the gefilte fish, I
burned them."
Ziering has continued to observe
the holidays since separating from her
husband — and to field questions
about being Jewish.
When people wonder why a nice
Jewish girl is appearing topless in
films such as American Wedding in
which her campy Officer Krystal
dominates the outrageous bachelor
party scene — she says, "I have no
problems being naked because the
human body is beautiful."
When they ask if she's really Jewish,
she tries to maintain her sense of
humor. As she told Corolla: "I used to
be a `shiksa,' but now I'm a Jew."

Freaky Friday, opening in theaters
Aug. 6, is a wonderfully written
novel for teenagers that Hollywood
couldn't resist remaking.
The novel, written by MARY
RODGERS, 72, the daughter of
the famous composer RICHARD
RODGERS, was first made into a
film in 1976 and remade as a TV
movie in 1995.
The current version co-stars
JAMIE LEE CURTIS (who is
Jewish on her father Tony's side).
Veteran Jewish character actor
HAROLD GOULD, 79, plays
Curtis' father.
Gould is probably best remem-
bered as Rhoda's father in the Rhoda
show and as "Miles," Betty White's
boyfriend in The Golden Girls.
Freaky Friday is about a mother
and teenage daughter who
exchange personalities through a
mystical" transformation and
learn what it is like to be in each
other's shoes for a few days.

FINE CHINESE DINING



American Wedding opens today at
Detroit-area theaters.

"But she said, 'I don't care if you
scribble a few lines on a napkin, I
need something funny to show the
actors,"' he recalled.
Herz burned the midnight oil and,
two weeks later, he delivered a script
that convinced everyone to sign on—
including director Jesse Dylan
(Wedding is his second feature film).
"Adam has the gift of embellish-
ment to the point of creating scenes
that are shocking but hysterical," said
Eugene Levy, who plays Jim's dad.
In the nuptial sequence, Levy gets
to look aghast when the bride's
clueless father toasts, "May we sit
many happy shivas together."
The Jewish actor likes that Pere
Levenstein comes off as the quintes-
sential, supportive Jewish dad.
"He's not prudish about sex," he
said. "He thinks the idea that his son
is messing around with a girl instead
of baked goods is a good thing.

In Seabiscuit, currently in theaters,
Jewish writer-director GARY ROSS
has re-teamed with his Pleasantville
star Tobey Maguire in the story of
the 1930s thoroughbred who capti-
vated Depression-era America. Ross
has been interested in racing since
his teenage years.
"It was never about gambling,"
he told Hollywood Life magazine.
"I'm certainly interested in the
gambling aspect — I remember
going to the track when I was just
13, I think for my bar mitzvah,
and I nailed the exacta and won
85 bucks and was hooked.
"But I'm most fascinated by the
sport. My wife was a huge fan of
the novels of former jockey Dick
Francis and I became reacquainted
with the nuances of the racing
world as she did by those books."
Ross also said he is now co-owner
of a thoroughbred. "STEVEN
SPEILBERG, [Seabuscuit produc-
ers] Kathy Kennedy [and] Frank
Marshall, KATE CAPSHAW and
my wife, Allison, and I bought 10
percent of a horse named
Atswhatimtalkinbout. So I own,
basically, a hoof," he told the
magazine.
