Age

Catherine said the other day that she had no idea how old she is: she looks at other people, everyday or famous, and has no concept of how old she is in relation to them.

I realized I suffer the same problem.

So I did some basic famous people research.

I was born on April 5, 1966.

Nancy McKeon, who played the rebellious ‘Jo’ on The Facts of Life was born the day before me.

Robin Wright was born three days after me.

Cynthia Nixon was born on April 9th, 4 days after me.

Stephen Baldwin, the youngest of the Baldwin brothers was born a month later, on May 12 and four days after that came Janet Jackson.

Helena Bonham Carter was born later in May, and Julianna Margulies was born in early June.

I’m also the same age as Dr. Dre, Cindy Crawford, Edie Brickell, Kurt Browning, John Cusack, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mike Tyson, Luke Perry, David Schwimmer, and Kiefer Sutherland.

I can’t say that many on that list came as a surprise to me, although generally I think I feel younger than most of them (this is probably because they are famous, and thus appear to have achieved more in a shorter time).

Here’s an interesting idea for a website: take a list of, say, 100 famous people and present them one by one, giving the option of selecting “older than me” or “younger than me” and then average out the results. Anyone?
