Adrien Brody

Well, to make a long story short, Adrien Brody is Jewish!

Since Adrien Brody's mother is Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father is Jewish too.

Adrien Brody was born on April 14, 1973 in Woodhaven, Queens, New York, U.S..

Brody's father is of Polish Jewish descent; Brody's mother – who was raised as a Catholic – was the daughter of a Catholic Hungarian aristocrat father and a Czech Jewish mother.

He received widespread recognition and acclaim after starring in Roman Polanski's The Pianist (2002), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor at age 29, the only actor under 30 to do so. Brody is also the only American actor to receive the French Cesar Award.
