Hollywood visit: Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, who two weeks ago won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," visited Israel
this week to attend the wedding of his ultra-Orthodox daughter Miriam and her partner Pinchas.
Waltz, 56, decided to stay in an apartment in Jerusalem rather than in a luxury hotel.
On Sunday, he was spotted touring the Israeli capital before his daughter's wedding by a team of the "Erev Tov with Guy Pines" entertainment show.
Quiet visit. Christoph Waltz
In the early evening hours, Waltz arrived at a biblical-style restaurant near the Tower of David, where the wedding was held in a relatively modest manner. Ynet learned that the event had 160 guests and that there was no separation between men and women.
"The women and men didn't dance together," one of the guests told Ynet, "but they were in the same area. You could easily tell that there was an important guest there. When I tried to take a picture, I was taken outside by security guards."
I'll have a croissant, please
Waltz visited Israel about three years ago together with Tarantino to promote the film "Inglourious Basterds,"
for which he also won an Oscar.
Apart from Miriam, his daughter from his first marriage, he has another son living in Israel who serves as a rabbi. All that's left is to wish the family a big Mazal Tov!
