The gorgeous and talented Mila Kunis makes the list of hot Jewish actresses with ease, having found stardom in the hit sitcom "That 70 s Show" in 1998 when she was only fifteen.

With such a Nordic sounding last name, you wouldn’t immediately peg Scarlett as Jewish – but she is, on her mom’s side. And do we really need to explain why we chose her?
6. Alyson Hannigan.
"Buffy" definitely did more than its share of contributing to the community of Jewish actresses—the also show cemented the star status of Alyson Hannigan, who went on to achieve major success in film with the "American Pie" franchise, and now stars in the Emmy-nominated sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," now in its sixth season.

She's done silly comedies like "The Whole Nine Yards," gritty dramas like "Pulp Fiction" and everything in between, and she's believable in any genre.
