Is Ashton Kutcher Preparing for Life as a Jew?
Could it be that Jewish actress Mila Kunis, who has been dating actor Ashton Kutcher since last September, has convinced her non-Jewish boyfriend to take the plunge and join her in Jewdom?

According to the celebrity gossip website, Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Kutcher’s transition to Judaism could already be underway as he is currently studying both Judaism and Mila’s native language, Ukranian, in an attempt to get on her parents’ good side.

But, before we book the synagogue, let’s remember that this is not the first interest the Roman-Catholic Kutcher has shown towards Judaism as, following in the footsteps of other famous folks, most notably Madonna, he did study Kabbalah, and he and his first wife, actress Demi Moore, were married in 2005 by a rabbi at the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles.

Kunis, 29, was best known for her role of Jackie Burkhardt in “That 70s Show,” on which she co-starred with Kutcher.
