July 30th 1965...


This was a very important date because I was born that day! ;-) Oh, BTW, other people were also born on this day, mainly action heroes!! So, I started to ask myself: why the hell am I not an actor?? :-)

Arnie--nice, huh?

Arnold Schwarzenegger (July 30th 1947). He is the archetype of an action hero: Conan the Barbarian, Terminator and Terminator 2, etc. No wonder I have a strong affinity to body building! (Uhh, this was a joke, ok?)

Terminator
Rambo

Frank Stallone (July 30th 1950), the brother of Sylvester Stallone. Sly Stone is THE OTHER action hero of the 90s: Rambo, Rocky, etc. He is also pretty much into body building. Actually, I don't know much about his brother Frank, but who cares... :-) Oh, one thing: 1986, he won the Razzie award for the Worst Original Song for Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985). Congrats!

Rambo

Leon

Jean Reno (July 30th 1948). Yet another action hero! He always has the same role: "The Cleaner"... He's THE killer! You can see him in La Femme Nikita, The Professional, and also in Godzilla. He's just great, and, BTW, not half as dumb as Schwarzenegger or Stallone!

Leon
Kate

Kate Bush (July 30th 1958). She's NOT an action hero, but I am sure you know her clear voice from songs like Babooshka, Running Up That Hill, or Rubberband Girl. Jasmin's voice was often compared to Kate Bush—is this a coincidence?

Kate

started as an action star in Speed, and she is only 4 days older than I am! Amazing, isn't it? She's born July 26th 1965.

Wendy James

Do you know who's Tex Axile? He's born on the same day as I am, July 30th 1965!! AND: He was Wendy James' drummer! Can you believe that? YOU DON'T KNOW WENDY?? She's the singer and absolutely charismatic front person of Transvision Vamp! I JUST LOVED HER, she was one of my idols!

Wendy James

Oh well, there are actually even more beautiful people born on my birthday: Jaime Pressly (July 30th 1977), Hillary Swank (July 30th 1974), Lisa Kudrow (July 30th 1963)... Why am I not surprised? :-)
