February 2 is Groundhog Day, but it’s also notable for another celebrity not named Punxsutawney Phil. Shakira turns 36 today. Yes, 36 … going on 26?
It’s hard to believe, but Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known globally by her first name alone, first emerged in Colombia and Latin America in the early 1990s.
Since then, she’s achieved massive success as singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer and model … we leave anything out?
Oh right, she’s going to be on The Voice Season 4!
Those hips of hers absolutely do not lie, and they recently helped her achieve herMore >
January 7 is a good, somewhat random day for celebrity birthdays.
First we have Katie Couric (56), one of the most popular and beloved faces in TV news, be it on Today, CBS’ prime time broadcast or her new show Katie.
There’s Nicolas Cage (49), hugely successful, occasionally bankrupt actor with many critically panned box office hits to his credit and even an Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas.
Then we have Jeremy Renner (42), acclaimed star of The Hurt Locker, The Town, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy.
And finally Dustin Diamond (36),More >
Lil Wayne was a no-show at his scheduled trial date Monday, and the judge presiding over the rapper’s lawsuit against Quincy Jones III is far from impressed.
Weezy apparently suffered “several seizure-like episodes” and will sit the trial out, meaning the jury will only have his video deposition to go on. Yes, this deposition:
Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary he filmed about the Young Money founder that he calls a “scandalous portrayal.” But he won’t show up in person.
LW did not appear today,More >
A very happy belated birthday to Prince Harry of Wales, the UK’s most eligible bachelor, who turned 28 over the weekend (September 15). Hip, hip, hooray for H!
For a guy nicknamed The Spare and often living in Prince William’s shadow, he’s a mover and shaker. And we’re not just talking about Prince Harry naked photos.
Great Britain’s Olympic Ambassador and Royal Air Force pilot was just deployed to the front lines in Afghanistan, where the Taliban is targeting him specifically.
It’s been a rough stretch for the royals lately, with Harry’s naked picture scandal in Vegas, followed by theMore >
A CW star and former South African President both celebrate birthdays today.
First, Chace Crawford – who just started shooting Gossip Girl Season 6 – turns 27, as fans don’t need to worry about gifting him with anyone aside from their best wishes. He’s rumored to be dating Erin Andrews, after all.
The actor doesn’t need anything else in life.
Nelson Mandela, meanwhile, turns 94. The activist spent 27 years in prison and eventually helped turn his nation into a democracy, defeating the evils of apartheid along the way. That’s almost as impressive an achievement as the whole Andrews thingMore >
Try to keep the screams contained, readers, but get excited nonetheless: Robert Pattinson turns 26 today!!!
The actor is preparing for a very busy second half of 2012. He’ll soon be seen like never before in the mysterious thriller Cosmopolis; and then there’s a small release in November to which many fans are looking forward.
Breaking Dawn Part 2 or something? We think that’s the title.
Robert, meanwhile, continues to quietly date Kristen Stewart, often seen out and about with the co-star, but rarely talking about the actress in public.
Yes, he’s both a private man and someone seeminglyMore >
A pair of beauties, one for each gender, celebrates a birthday today.
First, Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz is 27. The actor appeared on 90210 briefly during that CW drama’s first season and has proceeded to explode on to the movie scene thanks to his role as Emmett Cullen in Twilight, New Moon and Breaking Dawn.
Simply put, he has the best body in the business. Admire it below as you wish Lutz a very happy birthday:
Elsewhere, Eva Longoria turns 37.
This gorgeous actress is in a transitional phase for personally and professionally, as Desperate Housewives goes off the air in May andMore >
Last year, on her 42nd birthday, celebrity gossip tabloids were saying that Jennifer Aniston was lonely and going through inner turmoil on a daily basis.
What a difference a year makes.
With a serious boyfriend in Justin Theroux, a career that’s taken some fun new turns, and a face and body that seem to look better with age (we didn’t know that was possible, but Aniston’s defying the odds), she’s on top of the world.
We’re sure the Brad Pitt rumors (reconciliation/love child/whatever) will surface again soon. That’s just how the tabloids roll … every month of every year.
But today, on herMore >
Josh Hutcherson turns 19 today. And it may be the final birthday this actor celebrates before he makes the leap to A-list status.
The young star, previously best known for briefly dating Vanessa Hudgens, has been cast as Peeta in The Hunger Games, a role that is sure to bring him a legion of rabid fans. Most of the female persuasion.
Hutcherson has also appeared in The Kids Are All Right and Journey to the Center of the Earth. But neither of these films can compare to the popularity of The Hunger Games.
Wish Josh a happy birthday now and then view the first official trailer for the firstMore >
America’s favorite groupie slut Michaele Salahi was in her element this weekend.
The former Real Housewives of D.C. star and her fairy tale rocker beau Neal Schon of Journey fame took their bizarre PDA to new depths/heights in Denver.
Neal and the band rocked “Happy Birthday” onstage for the whole world to see. If this doesn’t make you tear up over their fairy tale romance, what will?!
Just magical. Except for Tareq Salahi. Fortunately he may be too wrapped up in trying to cash in on his misfortune with his new reality show to notice.
Anyway, watch the Journey ax man serenade hisMore >
Britney Spears’ adorable l’il munchkins are not twins, but darn close – both celebrate their birthdays this week, and were born just under one year apart!
Jayden James turned five yesterday. Sean Preston turns six tomorrow!
Today, we’re splitting the difference and honoring both youngans with a birthday tribute. Hope Britney, Preston and JJ have some fun stuff planned!
Hey, at least two good things came out of Britney’s marriage to Kevin Federline. The best things, in fact. It was just an epic disaster otherwise.
Britney Spears’ entourage enjoys some downtime at Disneyland.
Betty White is very sorry, but she’s a busy woman.
The actress has been forced to turn down Sgt. Ray Lewis’s invitation to this year’s Marine Corps Ball, and it’s all due to her unfunny sitcom!
“I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform… but unfortunately, I cannot accept as I will be taping an episode of Hot in Cleveland,” White said last night in a statement.
Sorry, Sergeant Lewis. We suggest you next turn to Olivia Wilde.
Prince William has a gorgeous new wife, billions in assets and admirers all over the globe.
He also has a birthday today: the royal stud turns 29!
It’s been quite the year for William, who pulled off what many consider to be The Wedding of the Century, went on a honeymoon and met the Obamas. He also gained Pippa Middleton as a sister-in-law. Score!
Take a look back at the last few months in the life of this prince via the following photo montage, and then send William your birthday wishes:
Read the original: Happy 29th Birthday, Prince William!
A pair of acting heavyweights celebrate birthdays today.
First, Captain Jack Sparrow himself turns 48. Arguably the greatest actor of his generation – aka The Anti-Jennifer Love Hewitt - Johnny Depp most recently anchored Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and will next be seen in The Rum Diary.
Natalie Portman, meanwhile, turns 30. The reigning Best Actress starred in Thor this summer and does not have a new film in production.
Send in your best birthday wishes to these A-listers now!
Jennifer Love Hewitt might be able to whisper with ghosts, but she can’t fight numbers.
According to a study of Rotten Tomatoes, a movie review website that chronicles critical reception to pretty much every film ever made, the beauty ranks as the worst actress of her generation.
JLH has not scored above 60% on any flick since 1985, the cutoff year established by researchers Christopher Beam and Jeremy Singer-Vine as the modern era for movies.
Still, Hewitt’s acting future appears bright. Sources say she may replace Mariska Hargitay as the lead female detective on Law & Order: SVU nextMore >
