Is the WASPy Peaches more than Eli Roth's 21-year-old trophy girlfriend?

The 21-years-old-and-already-divorced celebutante Peaches Geldof is serious about her relationship with Inglourious Basterd Eli Roth, 37, whom she has been spotted playing kissy face with up and down Sunset Boulevard recently... sometimes in Lolita glasses and little-girl socks.

It's been two weeks now since the pair first got us to put on our Not-Uh! faces at their post-Oscars shenanigans, to include uncomfortable PDAing and OMG look at us Tweeting.

"At the Vanity Fair Oscar night party with @eliroth who's got a silent movie star look going down tonight. Very sharp," she Tweeted. And later: @eliroth shouted 'word' into a microphone p.diddy thrust in his face whilst jumping on a couch. S**t just got real."

Yes, they are a couple. For many people, this is weird. And confusing. And a bit icky.

For starters, there's the age thing. Eli was nearly a legal adult when Peaches came into the world... in 1989. March 13th, 1989 — that's right, she's only been able to buy the booze for a few weeks now.

Then there's what Kaiser over at Celebitchy identifies as a "worthiness" discrepancy.

Eli is pretty established as a writer/director, and now actor. He's got famous friends like Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt. He's pretty hot, in a quirky/sexy nice-Jewish-boy way.

Now, Peaches Geldof is not really much of anything. Her father is Bob Geldof, the dude who organized Live Aid, and is generally in competition with Bono for the most self-righteous wanker out there. Peaches doesn't have a career beyond "sometimes model" and "sometimes writer" and "celebutante". She's a professional party girl, basically, who sometimes slums it with paying gigs to give herself the whiff of legitimacy. She's Lindsay Lohan without the child stardom. Ugh. [Source: Celebitchy]

And then there seems to be some sort of Jew-dating-a-Gentile anxiety from within the various gossip blog commenters. And not just any Gentile — a Scientologist! Oy Vey! Guess it strikes some people as weird that the guy who played The Bear Jew is dating some Irish lass with inclinations towards fringe religious practices.

To sum: The once well-regarded and formerly crushable Eli Roth has broken his Jewish mother's heart by revealing himself to be a bit of a pervert for barely-legal WASP-y non-celebrity celebrities.
