Do you ever check who as the same birth date as you ?

To my horror I found that Diane Abbott MP shares the same birth except I am 7 years older. 😳 I am much happier with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Birthday not just birth. If only we had an edit button.

I shared my birthday with my last partner It felt really strange for someone close to me to have pinched my special day especially as I had it eight years before him 😁

Proud to share mine with Machiavelli.

It would appear that the only famous person I share birhdays with is Hedy Lamarr - the rest of the ones i can find are unknown, to me at least!!!
Oh well, I have two dear friends with whom I celebrate my birthday and that is good enough for me!

I haven`t checked lately, but I found years ago that I had the same birthday as actor Robert Newton (Long John Silver) and, much better, Marilyn Monroe.

Oh, and Carl Sagan, I quite like that one to share with.

My parents had the same birthday and then I worked with someone who had the same birthday as her husband --- and it was the same date as my parents!

I share mine with Nigel Mansell.

Freddie Mercury. Same date and year. He'd be 71' unbelievable.

Am I allowed to mention him on this thread?

Paul Newman

Rather have him than Hitler.
If I'd been born a day later it would have been the Queen.
As it is, it's Hitler, Gollum, aka, Andy Serkis, or Napoleon 111.
