To get a little perspective, take a look at these many well-known faces side by side. You might be shocked to find that they are the exact same age.
Michelle Obama and Sandra Bullock- 1964
Two grand ladies were born in 1964. The former first lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama and Hollywood star Sandra Bullock. Other than her first lady endeavors, Michelle Obama is an attorney and an author. She was raised in Chicago, and she has become a role model for many women around the world.
Sandra Bullock was born in Virginia and spoke fluent German growing up. Her mother was a German opera singer. As a child, Sandra spent 12 years in Germany and Austria, taking singing and ballet classes. There is no need to detail her current contribution to the film industry, as she has become one of Hollywood's most famous actresses.
Holly Hunter and Joan Jett- 1958
Holly Hunter was everywhere in the early 1990s, especially after her performance in "The Piano." It seems though that she has disappeared or gone undercover. Well, she hasn't. She has simply been working on upcoming projects. In a relationship with Gordon MacDonald, Hunter has a set of twins.
Joan Jett (Joan Marie Larkin) is known to us all through her band, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Born in Pennsylvania, she got her first guitar at the age of 13, which introduced her to the world of music. She changed her name from Larkin to Jett as she believed it had more of a rock n' roll feel to it. And she wasn't wrong.

"Big," "Road to Perdition," "Forest Gump," and "The Green Mile" are only some of the classics Tom has contributed to the industry.

Ricky Martin and Elon Musk- 1971
Enrique Martín Morales and Elon Reeve Musk were born the same year. One in Puerto Rico and the other in South Africa. When Ricky was six he began to sing, and during that time, halfway around the world, Elon discovered his passion for computers and video games.
The early 1990s brought Martin his first solo albums, and Musk enrolled at University in Ontario, Canada. By 2021, Elon Musk's net worth became $266 billion, while Ricky Martin had to do with only $120 million, making Elon Musk worth around 2K Ricky Martins.

He has appeared on many TV reality shows ("The Voice," "American idol"), and is famous for his great songs and his gorgeous wife Nicole Kidman. Those sweeping bangs make him look a lot younger, meanwhile, Will Ferrell who has been making us laugh for decades is the same age.
Will Ferrell discovered his love for acting during his high school days. He is responsible for some of our (and your) favorite comedy movies, and he is a big philanthropist. He is happily married, had three children, and is currently working on productions for Apple TV.

Kylie Jenner and Malala Yousafzai- 1997
Kylie Jenner is many things. She is a model, she starred on a reality show on TV, she is a businesswoman with a cosmetic company to her name, and of course, she's one of the biggest names in the Jenner/Kardashian clan. For some, she's accomplished a lot but then we have Malala, born in 1997 and has led a very different life.
Malala Yousafzai holds the greatest prize one could ever wish for. She has a Nobel prize. She is the second Pakistani, in the entire history of Nobel prizes, to win one. She is a known human rights activist and is an inspiration to all women of the world.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jennifer Lopez- 1969
Catherine Zeta-Jones keeps amazing us. We think she is one of the most beautiful women in the world, regardless of her accomplishments (or to whom she is married). She appeared on the Welsh stages at a very young age and moved to London at 15 to dedicate her time to her acting career. She stared on the West End stages and her breakthrough came with Mariette in "The Darling Buds of May." She is married to Michal Douglas, and they have two children.
Jenifer Lopez. What don't we know about her? She's an amazing singer and actress, four times married, and owns an outrageous record. Who would have thought that she used to be a backup dancer?
Emily Blunt and Felicity Jones- 1983
Emily Blunt has more awards than any actress her age could wish for. She has been nominated for over 40 awards in different categories and has won seven of them. She is best known for her role in "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006), "The Young Victoria," and "Edge of Tomorrow." She is married to John Krasinski, they have two children and Stanly Tucci is her brother-in-law.

She was the presenter of "Dolce & Gabbana" in 2012 and has said that fashion shows are just like acting. You put on a costume and play the role.
Adrien Brody and Mario Lopez- 1973
You say to us Mario Lopez, we say to you, A.C. Slater. There are some things you just can't get rid of. He was born in California and started to dance at the age of three. He was discovered by a talent agency at the age of ten and spent most of his early years on the set of commercial filming. Saved by "The Bell" is for sure what he is best known for. He appeared on "Dancing with the Stars," is happily married, and has three children.
Adrien Brody is a completely different story. One of the greatest dramatic actors out there. He received global recognition for his outstanding role in "The Pianist." What a performance. He has since amazed us in "The Jacket," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and more.
Russell Crowe and Rob Lowe- 1964
We were quite amazed to discover that these two are the same age. Russell Crowe is a New Zealander, who grew up in Australia. He made his breakthrough in 2000 as the Gladiator. He has since charmed us in A Beautiful Mind, The Insider, and more. He is divorced and has two children.
Rob Lowe became internationally famous in 1983 with "The Outsiders." He was a member of the Brat Pack (a group of teen actors appearing together in movies). Since then he has starred in "Elmo's Fire," "Wayne's World," and, our favorite, "Thank You For Smoking."

The years flew by, and Bella went on to become one of the most famous models. Zendaya left the Disney channel to join the "Dancing with the Stars" show and showed us what she's got. Two beautiful women.

Damon dropped out of Harvard University, to join the "Geronimo; An American Legend's" cast and Nick received a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois.

Sebastian Stan and Seth Rogen- 1982
Sebastian Stan, the Romanian American actor is most known for his role as Bucky Barnes in Marvel's Captain America films. He moved from Romania to Austria at a young age, where he demonstrated his unique piano playing talent. A few years after, Sebastian and his mother arrived in the land of the free, where he then began his acting career.
Seth Rogan as well does not originate from the USA, as he was born in Canada to Russian and Ukrainian immigrants. He realized at a very young age that all he wanted to do in life, was make people laugh. We have seen him on "Freaks and Geeks" "Super Bad" and countless more raunchy comedies from the Apattow clan. He has since progressed through the world of film directing.
Megan Fox and Emilia Clarke -1986
Both gorgeous but oceans apart, Emilia Rose Clarke is an English actress and Megan Fox is an American model and actress. Clarke's breakthrough was on the Westend theater stages while Fox made her acting debut on a widescreen with Holyday in the Sun. Clarke went to boarding school where she studied drama while Fox took ballet and dance lessons in her teens.
Fox was married to Brian Austin Green for over a decade and today she is seen in some other guy's company. We are not sure about Clarke's love life, however, we ate up those Game of Thrones romance rumors with costar Kit Harrington.
Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Aniston - 1969
Jenifer Aniston was born on February 11th, 1969, and Gwen Renée Stefani was born on October 3rd of that same year. Both their exes (Brad Pitt and Gavin Rossdale) were responsible for matching these two, as they have been good friends for almost 20 years.

Justin Bieber and Harry Styles-1994
Harry Styles is an English singer and songwriter. He began his career on The X Factor, a British music competition TV show. The show resulted in the forming of the boyband One Direction which became a global success within no time. He has since won several awards. Fine Line was the best-voted pop album for 2020, and he had a few Best International awards to his name.
Justin Bieber is a complete different sorry. He didn't need a TV show as a kickstart. Bieber was discovered by a record executive and made it big by releasing My World in 2009. He has since been nominated (and won) for practically every category out there. Song of the Year, Video of the Year, Artis of the Year, and Collaboration of the Year, are some of the titles this young man carries.
Halle Berry and Robin Wright -1966
Let see how many things Halle Berry and Robin Write share, besides their birth year. Both are American actresses. Both are directors. Robin began her career as a model at the age of 14, and Halle modeled and participated in a number of beauty contests. They have both grabbed an Emmy award and a Golden Global award.
Robin starred in the 2017 "Wonder Woman" movie, while Berry amazed us in her role in "Catwoman." Two magnificent superhero women.
Chris Evans and Elijah Wood-1981
Christopher Robert Evans is true "Captain America." And Elijah Woods is no other than Frodo Baggins. Two great names and two great characters. Evans was born in Boston Masseuses kick-started his acting career in 1997 with "Biodiversity: Wild About Life." He voiced one of the characters on TMNT in 2007 and has since made it on the big screen with "Knives Out," Marvel's "The Avengers," and "Snowpiercer."
Elijah Woods had a small part in "Back to the Future Part III," but that was only the beginning for him. "Lord of the Rings" is by far the jewel on his crown, but he has a few other successes to be proud of. He voiced on "Happy Feet," He played on "Sin City," and of course, "Eternal Sunshine on The Spotless Mind."
Selena Gomez and Travis Scott- 1992
What don't we know about Selena Gomez? Unlike most celebs, Selena Gomez actually does manage her own social media accounts. The TV show "Friends" is one of her favorite shows. She enjoys eating lemons (whole) and never throws the pizza crust. It's her favorite part. "Barnie and Friends" was her first TV appearance and she had her first kiss at the age of 12.
And Travis Scott? Aside from his famous rap career, he's also known for his relationships (currently with his baby mama, Kylie Jenner. ) He also used to date Rihana. He plays the piano and the drums and held the title for The Best Rap Single, Music runs in his family, and Travis Scott is not really his name, it's Jacques Bermon Webster II.
Aaron Paul and Chris Pratt-1979
American actor and producer, Aaron Paul Sturtevant, is best known (and loved) for his role in "Breaking Bad." He was born in Idaho and began his Hollywood career not as an actor, but as a theater usher. Since the gloomy behind-the-scenes theater days, he has put his name on massive hits both on the widescreen and on TV shows.
Christopher Michael Pratt was born in Minnesota and competed in the high school wrestling team. His voice is heard throughout the Lego movies and is constantly working on his acting, producing, and directing passion.
Paul Giamatti and Vin Diesel-1967
Can you believe these two are the same age? Paul Edward Valentine Giamatti is an American actor known for his role in "Saving Private Ryan," "12 Years a Slave" and "Saving Mr. Banks;" and "Vin Diesel," the almighty "Fast and Furious" star. They play such diverse types of roles, yet each one tremendously succeeds in what he does.
Giamatti is married with one child, and Vin Diesel is in a relationship and has three children. Diesel has established a production company while Giamatti has been busy with his numerous nominations and awards that never seem to end.
Kate Middleton and Rami Malek- 1982
When Rami Malek's parents immigrated from Egypt to the USA, never in their wildest dreams, could they even imagine their son would become one of the biggest names in the movie industry? With his astonishing performance in "Bohemian Rhapsody," his future is secured.
On the other side of the world, Kate Middleton's parents never thought that their beautiful daughter, would one day marry the future king of England, and become herself, queen. Kate (Catherine) was born in Berkshire England to an upper-middle-class family which has been financially enjoying trust funds that were established in their family name over 100 years ago.
Beyoncé and Britney Spears - 1981
These two have life stories to hand out to a few more people (at least one of them has). Both were born in the last quarter of the year and have climbed the ladder of success and had a wild journey along the way. Beyonce's full name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, and as the reigning queen of the music biz, needs no introduction.
At the age of ten, Britney Spears was an off-broadway understudy before she shot to fame as the pop princess she later became to be. These two might be the same age but have led wildly different music careers ending up in rather different places in life. One thing you can't deny, they are both mega-successful.
Billie Eilish and Emma Chamberlain-2001
Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell (wow) became globally noticed in 2015 with her single Ocean Eyes. She has since filled the concert stadiums and is recognized today as one of the most successful young musicians. She was born in Los Angeles to two performers. The Baird O'Connell apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Emma Chamberlain is a successful internet personality and Youtuber (just ask gen-zs!) She was born in California and attended an all-girl school as she was growing up. She has over 1.5 billion views and makes over $ 2.5 million on her youtube account. It's time for changing a profession we say.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cho- 1972
Before Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was acting, he was already a super successful wrestler pounding it out in the ring. John Cho, on the other hand, is Star Trek's latest Hikaru Sulu John.
It feels like only yesterday John Cho was making us chuckle in the Harold Kumar stoner comedies. Now he's a full-grown man!
NeNe Leakes and Lisa Bonet- 1967
Linnethia Monique "NeNe" Leakes. What a name!!!!! and Lisa Michelle Bonet, well we absolutely love everything about her. Denis Huxtable is probably her iconic character. An early twenty stunners who we could all relate to in late 1980. And besides being Denis, Lisa Bonet was married to Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa, and she had a few small TV roles.
NeNe Leakes was born and raised in New York. Throughout her career, she held a few adult-related roles but became the talk of the day when she starred in "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Since then she has performed in several productions on the Broadway stage.
Scarlett Johansson and Mark Zuckerberg-1984
It's difficult to merge these two into one paragraph as they are so diverse. One is an American actress, and one of the highest-paid performers of all time. And the other, well we don't feel a need to introduce his. He is practically in our faces every day. He is responsible for social media technology which has changed the code of living. He has completely transformed the daily language we use.
As for Scarlette, well, she's a household name known for her roles in countless films, both Oscar winners and blockbusters. She's also happily married to comedian Colin Jost.
Martin Freeman and Jared Leto- 1971
Martin Freeman is an English actor who has stored in his cabinet numerous awards. He is best known (and loved) for his role in The Office. Only in recent years, he got his driving license which was a barrier between him and several roles he wanted to do but couldn't (they all required driving abilities). He is a vegetarian and said in one interview that modern technology is too much for him and that he wished he was born earlier. We vote for that too. Take us back to landlines and newspapers.
Jared Leto made us fall for him in the past century with his appearances in "Fight Club" and "American Psycho." Since then he has nourished his music and film-making careers. He recently played the role of Adam Neumann, in the movie behind the rise and fall of WeWork.
Nicolas Cage and Keanu Reeves- 1964
We would like to focus on the charity and noble work Keanu Reeves is involved in. He has secret charity foundations to help children in need. He donated millions every year for these causes. He buys lunch (the good stuff) for the entire crew when working on a movie. He has helped on a number of cases, workers he came across with and realized he could change their lives. There is a lot to say about this megastar, but he for sure stands out with his generosity and compassion.
Now, we don't want to make Nicolas Cage look bad, and we know that he too donated and helps the weaker, but with all due respect, Keanu is Keanu. We love Cage for the numerous hours of entertainment he has provided us with (and will keep on providing.)
Cher and Diane Keaton-1946
Less than 20 years after she was born, Cher (Cherilyn Sarkisian) was already a huge name in the music industry. Diane Keaton rose to fame at an early age too, starring in the 1968 Broadway production of "Hair" and in the 1970 Woody Allen's "Play it Again," Sam. Cher has Armenian roots, from her father's side which explains her unique and exquisite beauty.

Milo Ventimiglia was born in California and he too has British roots. His father is Italian- Sicilian, and his mother is English and Scottish.
Milo was born with a medical condition on his lips, which is where their unique shape comes from. He says that he and Sylvester Stalone share the same condition and that he is totally cool with it.
Courteney Cox and Courtney Love- 1964
Courtly C and Courtney L. Who should we start with? Cox is (for some of us), a favorite friend. No matter which role she plays, no matter how hard she tries, she will always be Monica. And Love? Well, she had her days of fame way back in the 1990s. Love has had outrageous moments on stage and her art is still considered confrontational.
Cox was born in Alabama. Instead of graduating from university, she decided to invest her time in modeling and acting, a wise decision taken.
Paul Rudd and Rory McCann-1969
Paul Rudd's full name is Paul Rudnitzky. As a kid, he used to love comic books and he believes that his appearance on "Friends" is what revealed him to the world. Courtney Love was one of his partners in a film he worked on. Rudd actually wanted to be an artist, and he is relatively discreet with matters concerning his private life.
Rory McCann is a Scottish actor and is best known for his role in "Game of Thrones." Before becoming an actor, he was a bridge painter and a carpenter. Only in 1998, he discovered his true purpose in life. Acting. He is single and lives a quiet life. Something he might actually share with Paul.
Jay-Z and Matthew Perry- 1969
We can't help it, the late Matthew Perry has got to be our favorite Friend. We just loved his cynical ways and we suppose each and every one of us can find something of Chandler within themselves. Perry starred in a number of hits both on TV and in the movies, however, his phenomenal role of Chandler will stick to him forever, long after is untimely passing in 2023.
Jay-Z (born Shawn Corey Carter) aside from his iconic rap career is known for being Beyonce's man. He was born in New York and has been influenced by music since his early days.
Julia Roberts and Pamela Anderson-1967
Julia Roberts has it going on. She was born in Georgia and dreamt of becoming a veterinarian. The Lord had other plans for her, however. "Satisfaction", in 1988, was her first real widescreen appearance, which was followed by our favorite - Mystic Pizza. Her name became as big as her red hair and today, she is one of the most desired, and successful actresses in the industry.
Pamela Anderson on the other hand worked things differently. She began her modeling career in 1989. She then starred in a few low-budget movies, and made her breakthrough on "Baywatch," playing the role of C.J.Parker. She has been married (several times), she has two children, and these days she plays (herself) on the TV series "Loose Women."
Shaquille O'Neal and Eminem-1972
Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal is one of the best basketball players of all time. He was born in New Jersey to two very tall parents. By the time he turned 13, he reached six ft six in (1.98m). In early 1990, he began keeping working on his music career and has become a working DJ, under the name of DJ Diesel.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III - known to you as Eminem, was born in Missouri and is an only child (let's put aside all the half brothers and sisters). He has since released huge hits amongst others, Stan and The Real Slim Shady. Eminem's music style is unique and diverse in some ways, however, he has definitely left a mark in his niche.
Justin Timberlake and Meghan Markle - 1981
In 1981, in the outskirts of Memphis, Tennessee, a baby boy was born named Justin Randall Timberlake. In the same year, just a few months later, a soon-to-be royal British dutchess prince was born. Her name - Rachel Meghan Markle. Justin spent his younger years singing in a church choir, while Meghan preferred to keep quiet until she grew up a little.
The day wasn't late to come when Justin became every other girl's idol, and Meghan, well she became......Meghan.
George Clooney and Barack Obama-1961
These two fellows have jobs that couldn't be more different than the other, and yet- they both look quite amazing for their age (one slightly even more than the other). Mr. Clooney, known and loved for his roles on the big screen, and the charming ER doctor and Nespresso presenter on the smaller screen.
Barack Obama on the other hand chose a slightly different path and became the first black American president. He has since published a book and has established his own production company.
Jessica Chastain and Shakira-1977
Jessica Chastain's first stage performance was the role of Juliet at the age of ten. She was a guest star on several TV shows with Law & Order being among others. "Miss Julie," "The Tree of Life," and "The Help" are only some of the hits she stared in. Jessica is relatively confidential when it comes to her personal life and never attends red carpet venus with her partner.
What can we say about Shakira that hasn't been said before? her full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, started her music career at the young age of 13, she knows how to belly dance, and she was once engaged to the former president of Argentina's son.
Zendaya and Lorde- 1996

Zendaya is an actress and singer. Her earliest appearance (that people can remember even to this day), was between 2010-2013 on the Disney channel. She was born in California, appeared on "Dancing with the Stars," and is now leading a flourishing her acting career.
Samuel L. Jackson and Steven Tyler-1948
Steven Victor Tallarico and Samuel Leroy Jackson are two individuals that have both archives so many rewards in their lives. Steven is probably one of the greatest American musicians, and Samuel, well there are not enough words to describe Samuel. Steven Tyler was born in Manhatten Ney York while Samuel L. Jackson was born in Washington D.C. Steven's father was a classical musician while Samuel spent most of his childhood with only his mother.
Tyler says, that at the age of 17, he went to a Rolling Stone concert, where he realized what he wanted to do in life. Jackson stuttered as a kid, and when discovered the world of acting, he learned that he could pretend to be whoever he wanted to be, and he began playing people that didn't stutter.
Kim Kardashian and Christina Ricci - 1980
Less than twenty years ago no one was familiar with the name Kim Kardashian. Today, Kardashian has become a household term, used by almost everyone. While Kim was still unknown, Ricci had already risen to fame following her role on Mermaids and The Adams Family. They were both born in California.
Today, Kim Kardashian is all over tabloids following her on and off relations with Kanya West and Christina Ricci is very active in the RAINN and welcomed her first daughter in December 2021.

Madonna has seven (!!!) siblings, while Ellen has only one. They both have father issues and both share a family story Hollywood could make a great movie of.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Ellen DeGeneres- 1958
Jamie Lee Curtis had been around for a few decades and has not yet said her last word. "A Fish Called Wanda" is probably her greatest hit from the late 1980s. This movie was followed by huge big and small-screen successes such as "My Girl, Anything But Love," "True Lies," and more. Ellen DeGeneres has too short hair, but that's about as far as the resemblance between these two goes.
Ellen is best known for her comedian character and for her talk show, "The Ellen Degeneres Show." She was born in Louisiana, majored in communication studies, and worked as a waitress in TGI Friday (we can defiantly see that).

Kate Upton and Selena Gomez - 1992
We will always see Selena Gomes as a Disney Channel alumn. No matter how hard she tries, we find it very difficult to see her in mature roles and singing grownup lyrics. Kate Upton on the other hand, will probably always be a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit queen.
Upton has been working on her acting career and she married baseball player Justin Verlander in 2017. Selena Gomez has had a few big hits both on the screen and in the music industry.

Taylor Swift and Dakota Johnson-1989
Between you and me, I can never tell the difference between all the young beautiful stars anymore. I never know who is who and which is what. Taylor is a Singer-Songwriter and Dakota (not the state) is an actress and model. Dakota was born into a family of megastars (daughter of Melanie Griffith), while Taylor comes from a family of people that nobody knows.

In addition to all that, Chopra is one of Meghan Markle's best friends (all in the family), which makes life that much interesting. Never a dull moment when it comes to Meghan.
Serena Williams and Paris Hilton -1981
It's hard to believe that Serena Williams and Paris Hilton were born the same year. Serena Williams has been a huge name for years now and Paris Hilton may have had her moments of fame, but ever since 2003, when she was busy with her reality show "The Simple Life," no one has really heard of her. In 2016, Williams earned more than 30 million dollars and has been nominated as one of the best female athletes of all time.
Paris Hilton on the other hand is still unsure where her life is leading her to. She has her own reality show, "Cooking With Paris," she appeared on a number of music videos and, how should we put this? She has had her share of getting in trouble with the cops.
Dakota Johnson and Joe Jonas-1989
We have many singer-songwriters on the list, but Joe Jonas is one of the few male dancers we found. It all started when he became a member of the Jonas Brothers, a rock band that featured his brothers too. 2010 was the year he invested his time in acting, then quickly realized that music was his call. He has starred on numerous music reality TV shows, backstage, and front. He is married to Sophie Turner and they have a baby boy.

Jennifer Lopez and Renée Zellweger-1969
J.LO J.Lo J.Lo. There is not much to say that hasn't been said before about one of the most beautiful, talented, charismatic, looks amazing at her age. The year 1997 was her year as she was discovered after playing the role of Selena for which she nabbed a Golden Globe nomination. This followed huge successes such as Waiting For Tonight, Jenny From the Block, and of course, we must spare one line for her ongoing love story with Ben Affleck.
Renée Zellweger may be slightly more modest than Lopez, but we must reserve her a place of honor as she has done magnificent things. "Miss Potter," "Cinderella Man," and of course "Bridget Jones" are only a shred of her successes.
Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin -1980
We had to read what we wrote over and over, making sure we didn't make a mistake. The movie "Home Alone," starring Macaulay Culkin was made over thirty years ago. That's like a lifetime ago. Culkin was born in 1980, so he was not even in his teens when he became of the most famous child stars in the industry. In fact, he started his career at the early age of four.
While Culkin was busy making movies, Ryan Gosling (and his family) were busy being Mormons. Gosling says that chapter had a great influence on every aspect of their lives. He is best known for his roles in "The Notebook," "La La Land," and young 0Hercules on the "Hercules" TV show.
Eddie Murphy and Forest Whitaker -1961
Edward Regan Murphy and Forest Steven Whitaker have got to be our favorites. Only by looking at Eddie, our smile is glued onto our faces. He does crack us up. He was born in Brooklyn New York and he obviously inherited his talents from his father who was an amateur actor and comedian. He started performing and making people laugh at the early age of 15, and hasn't stopped since.

She is an activist for femininity matters and her name comes from her fanatic obsession with the royal family. Her full name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor.
We also have a few secrets about Kylie Jenner to share. She dated Cody Simpson, she hates butterflies, her dream was to be a makeup artist and her mother is her all-time idol.
Whoopi Goldberg and Kris Jenner- 1955
Whoopi's birth name is Caryn Elaine Johnson. How many of you knew that? She was born in New York and claims that Goldberg is her name, and not added just as part of her stage definition. She started her acting career in the early 1980s and became a huge Hollywood star through hits like "Sister Act," "Ghost," "The Deep End of the Ocean," and many more.
Kris Jenner may not have shared with us her talents on the big screen, but on the small TV screen, she is known to every household. her big hit was not doubt, Keeping up With the Kardashians Show. Not very similar lives, but hey- they were born the same year.
Molly Ringwald and Will Smith-1989
In the mid/late 1980s, Molly Ringwald was part of a teen gang, who starred in all movies that came out at the time. Molly was the queen of the screen and the future was promising for her. Indeed Molly was a big name in those days, but she couldn't find a way to shake of the San Baker or Claire Standish characteristics. She is married, has three children, and packed up her acting career altogether.
Will Smith is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, however, his biggest breakthrough was on the TV show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. "We will summarise his activities in a few words. "Independence Day," "Hitch," "Pursuit of Happyness" and "Men in Black." He is a true phenomenon.
Emma Stone and Jessie J- 1988
The list of Emma Stone's award nominations just goes on and on. She has become one of the most influential people in the world and a desirable actress amongst Hollywood producers. Jessica Ellen Cornish was born the same year but in a completely different place.
Also known as Jessie J, she was born in London but later on, in life relocated to Los Angeles. She attended an Art school, grasped a number of music awards over the years and she is a known and activist vegan.
Nick Offerman and Nikolaj Coster -1970
Before we talk about Nick Offerman, let's focus on Nikolaj Coster. For those who weren't sure, he is a Danish actor and producer and you probably recognize him from "The Games of Thrones." To the Scandinavian audience, he is known as one of the promising actors around. He is married with two children and is currently focusing on the production side of his career.
What can we say about Nick Offerman that hasn't been said already? He is an accomplished, woodworker, he is an amazing dancer, and Stand by Me is one of his favorite movies.
John Lennon and James Cromwell- 1940
Who should we start with? The greatest musician of them all, or one of America's best-known actors with a resume behind him that consists of numerous nominations. Cromwell has starred in some of Hollywood's best motion pictures and TV shows. "Babe," "ER," and the green mile are only part of the list.
All we can say about John Lennon is that he has his name is stapled to one of the biggest rock/pop bands of all time, he transformed the way listeners approached and understood music, and it is such a shame that he is no longer with us to share some more of his gifts.
Mel Brooks and Queen Elizabeth II: 1926
As opposed to the late Queen Elizabeth II, Mel Brooks didn't always know what he was going to do in life, and as a child, wasn't aware that he would become one of the 20th century's most influential comedians and filmmakers. "History of The World," "Men in Tights," and "Life Stinks" are only some of the names that have earned Mel the honor he deserves.
There are no surprises when it comes to the late Queen Elizabeth. At an early age, she already knew what she was destined for. She had been the longest-ruling monarch in the history of the English monarchy, she had four children, the eldest King Charles III.
Chace Crawford and Bruno Mars: 1985
Since the early 2000s, Chace Crawford has been on our screens, making a name for himself. He was born in Texas and shares parents with former Miss USA, Candice Crawford. He has been nominated for several awards and won some too.

Mars was born in Hawaii, to a father who is Puerto Rican, Jewish, and originally from New York. His mother is Philipino who immigrated to the USA. Their magical mix produced a super talented son!
