Yes, we’ve already covered Sandra Bullock. But there are a number of other notables celebrating birthdays today. Enough that I wanted to point some of them out.
- 1856 – George Bernard Shaw, Irish writer, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1950)
- 1894 – Aldous Huxley, English-born author (d. 1963) – Wrote the great book Brave New World.
- 1922 – Jason Robards, American actor (d. 2000)
- 1943 – Mick Jagger, English musician (The Rolling Stones)
- 1959 – Kevin Spacey, American actor
- 1973 – Kate Beckinsale, British actress (who, by the way, looks simply ravishing in leather)
Of course, I highlight Shaw since I’ve recently returned from a trip to Ireland. The whole reason I went looking at other birthdays for today was because I heard recently that today is Huxley’s birthday. And the others I point out just because I figure plenty of folks will know who they are.
