My sister hates Zac Efron with a passion, so it was a surprise to catch her watching 17 again on her laptop earlier on this week. I have this habit of looking up any film I come into contact with, and thus pulled up the wiki page for 17 again. After flicking through several tie in pages I stumbled upon the wiki page of Leslie Mann, who played Scarlett O’Donnell in the film.
She looked oddly familiar, and a look at her filmography revealed why: she played Ursula in George of the Jungle. Fun fact: George of the Jungle was the first film I saw at the cinema, so I’ve always had a soft spot for it.
With her husband, Judd Apatow, she has two daughters, born in the late 1990s, early 2000s:
The second family this week has absolutely nothing to do with Leslie Mann whatsoever. Infact, truth be told, I’m trying to clear out my draft folder, in which this particular family has resided now for far too long.
Zac Goldsmith is a member of the Conservative Party, and currently represents the Richmond Park constituency in the House of Commons (i.e. he’s a politician). His father, Sir James Goldsmith, was quite the character and it’s worth mentioning the names of his children before we get onto Zac’s:
Isabel, 1954, mother: Maria Isabel Patiño
Manes, m, mother Ginette Lery
Alix, mother: Ginette Lery (children: Gaia and Lea)
Jemima Marcelle (aka Jemima Khan), 1974, mother: Lady Annabel (children: Sulaiman Isa and Kasim)
Frank Zacharias Robin, 1975, mother: Lady Annabel
Benjamin James, 1980, mother: Lady Annabel (children: Iris Annabel, Frank James Amschel and Isaac Benjamin Victor)
Jethro, mother: Laure Boulay de la Meurthe
Charlotte, mother: Laure Boulay de la Meurthe
As for Zac Goldsmith himself, with his ex-wife Sheherazade Ventura-Bentley, he had three children:
The Goldsmiths certainly have interesting names – Sheherazade is amazing.
I remember reading an article about Zac Goldsmith when he won the election and thinking ‘Your wife’s name is what?!’. It’s pretty wild considering her sister’s name is Jasmine.
