Celebrity Birthdays Today: Matthew Perry, Kyra Sedgwick, John Stamos & More!

August 19, 2011

Long list of celebrity birthdays today! A former MTV reporter, a former Bond girl, a couple of Trekkies, a lil’ rapper and several more are a year older today.

Kyra Sedgwick

Happy Birthday, Kyra Sedgwick! The beautiful blonde is 46 years old today. I am still bummed that The Closer will be ending next year. The show has been a regular on my DVR since its debut in 2005. Of the show ending, Sedgwick told OnTheRedCarpet.com, “I feel like I’m more than satisfied. I mean, I think critically and also just by our loyal audience, week after week, I think that we really have been a successful show. Creatively, it’s certainly been hugely satisfying for me.” She wrestled with the idea of leaving the show for a year before making the decision to move on, but she felt it was the right time. Sedgwick has won five Emmy’s for her portrayal of Brenda Leigh Johnson. This show will definitely be missed!

John Stamos

Happy Birthday, Jesse Kotsopolis! Uncle Jesse turns 48 years old today. What’s the latest with the hunky John Stamos? Will we see him again on Glee? I hope so. Is there a Full House reunion in the making? Ha, doubtful. Although my kids would love to see that happen! Stamos has been tapped to endorse…yogurt! Yogurt? Yes, Oikos Greek yogurt by Dannon, to be exact. Of his new job, he said with pride – “I am a proud Greek and a proud yogurt eater. And when the call from Dannon came in, and after I tasted Dannon Oikos, I couldn’t say no.”

Matthew Perry

Happy Birthday, Matthew Perry! Everybody’s favorite friend is 42 years old today. Last May ABC canceled Mr. Sunshine and around the same time Perry entered rehab to focus on his sobriety. Let’s hope he’s doing well and is healthy.
