Hollywood couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are planning to renew their vows in Israel, a U.S. magazine reported on Sunday.
According to a report by People magazine, Kutcher and Moore, who are currently visiting Israel, plan to renew their wedding vows in the Holy Land and put an end to the rumors about their rocky relationship.
“Sharing Love & Light while in Israel,” Kutcher tweeted on Saturday, on his way from L.A. to Tel Aviv.
“Asking 4 the energy 2 forge bonds with our similarities & find compromise in our differences,” added the 32-year-old actor, whose Twitter account has more than 1 million followers.
Kutcher and Moore, who study Kabbalah together, married in Los Angeles in 2005.
In September, U.S. tabloid Star magazine reported that Kutcher was caught cheating on 47-year-old Moore with a younger woman. Moore was quick to support her partner and deny the rumors.
Actress and Playboy model will dance and sit on judge panel of new season of Israel’s version of ‘Dancing with the Stars’
American actress and model Pamela Anderson will be on the new season of the Israeli version of the popular television show, “Dancing with the Stars,” Yedioth Ahronoth learned from sources at Reshet, one of Channel 2′s broadcast concessionaires.
Anderson is slated for a number of episodes as a judge and as a guest dancer, but will not be one of the competitors. She will be paid thousands of dollars for her participation.
Anderson, 43, is well acquainted with the “Dancing with the Stars” format as she was recently a contestant on the American version of the show.
The agreement securing her participation on the Israeli show was recently signed between her representatives and Reshet. According to the agreement, she will be a guest judge on a number of episodes alongside the regular panel of Hanna Laszlo, Claude Dadia, and Eli Mizrahi. Anderson will also perform a few dance numbers on the show.
Anderson won her first few minutes of fame after she appeared naked in Playboy at the end of the 80s. Her main claim to fame is for her main role in the popular 90s television show “Baywatch”.
Reshet reported in response, “The new season of Dancing with the Stars is the biggest and most grandiose yet. Surprising guests and participants are expected.”
Novelist, peace activist honored for his ‘efforts to promote understanding between Israelis and Palestinians,’ German FM says on final day of Frankfurt Book Fair
Israeli writer David Grossman on Sunday won the peace prize of the German book trade for his efforts to reconcile Israel with the Palestinians, the German Publishers and Booksellers Association said.
“In his novels, essays and stories, Grossman has consistently sought to understand and describe not only his own position, but also the opinions of those who think differently,” the association said.
“David Grossman gives a literary voice — one that is heard throughout the world — to this difficult co-
The 25,000 euro prize is traditionally awarded on the final day of the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest, to “individuals who have contributed to international tolerance through their exceptional activities, especially in the fields of literature, science and art.”
Grossman, born in 1954, has written novels, stories, essays and children’s books that often deal with his country’s identity and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He published his first novel “The Smile of the Lamb” in 1983.
A political activist, he has called for a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict and for restraint from his country. His son Uri was killed during the Israeli-Lebanon conflict in 2006 by a Hezbollah missile just days after Grossman and other writers demanded a ceasefire between the two sides.
He worked through this experience in “To the End of the Land” published in 2008, a novel that tells the story of a woman’s desperate attempt to protect herself and her family from a hard and violent reality, the association said.
“I am particularly pleased that his efforts for peace and a peaceful future of his country in the region is now being honoured by Germany,” German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in a news release.
“I hold him in high regard and have great respect for his tireless work for understanding between Israelis and Palestinians,” Westerwelle added.
Previous winners of the prestigious prize, first awarded in 1950, include Turkish Nobel Literature Prize winner Orhan Pamuk, U.S. writer Susan Sontag and former Czech president Vaclav Havel. Italian author Claudio Magris won the prize last year.
