Word is Leonardo DiCaprio is considering converting in order to marry longtime girlfriend Bar Refaeli, the Israeli supermodel. If this all goes down, Leo would represent one of our people’s greatest coups.

Which got me thinking: Who are our people’s greatest coups? (That is, who converted for marriage-related reasons. Sorry, Sammy Davis, Jr.)

A preliminary list:

10. Elizabeth Banks
9. John King
8. Geraldine Brooks
7. Françoise Mouly
6. Rod Carew*
5. Jamaica Kincaid
4. Elizabeth Taylor
3. Leonardo DiCaprio*
2. Ruth
1. Marilyn Monroe

*Didn’t actually convert.
