Celebrity Birthdays Today: Jack Black, Shania Twain, Leann Rimes & More!

August 28, 2011

Happy Sunday all! In our edition of Celebrity Birthdays Today, guess which Osmond is turning 60? Which original 90210’er is turning 42? What ‘Popular’ kid is blowing out 31 candles on her cake today? Find out who below!

Jack Black

Happy Birthday, Jack Black! The School of Rock actor turns 42 years old today. His upcoming movie, The Big Year, which he co-stars with Steve Martin and Owen Wilson, will premiere October 14th. A trailer for the comedy has yet to be released. The David Frankel directed flick, whose last movie was Marley & Me with Owen Wilson, is sure to have a hit on his hands. Just the mention of these three comedic actors together in a film is enough for me to see, whatever the movie may be.

Shania Twain

Happy Birthday, Shania Twain! The country star is 46 years old today. The brunette beauty recently auctioned off her BCBG Maxazria heels that she wore at the CMT Music Awards in June. Those heels didn’t do much for her balance, as she took a nasty spill while walking onto the stage to present the Best Male Video Award. She decided to put them up for auction, saying jokingly, “I never want to see those shoes again. Or maybe I should keep them as a souvenir?” The beautiful shoes recently sold on eBay for $9,000. The monies from the sale will go to Shania Kids Can, her charity which supports children in the public school system who are at risk. Her Still the One Las Vegas concert series will debut in December of 2012 at Caesar’s Palace. Can’t wait to see that show! I saw her in concert years ago and she was phenomenal!

Leann Rimes

Happy Birthday, Leann Rimes! Yet another country singer celebrating today, and this blonde beauty turns 29 years old. Yesterday she, her hubby Eddie Cibrian and stepson Mason headed out to Malibu beach. During the family jaunt, Rimes sported two different bikinis, both revealing a very toned body. Some say she’s ‘scary skinny’, but take a look at the pics over at DailyMail.co.uk and judge for yourself — is she too skinny or just very fit? While in Chicago with her husband and stepsons last weekend, a patron at a restaurant they were dining in came up to her and told her she needed to eat more. Rimes took to Twitter and aired her anger, “How dare someone come to me at a table with the boys and tell me I need to eat something. What is wrong with people? As I’m stuffing my face…. have another drink and maybe take a class in manners! Cheers!” Gotta side with Rimes on this one. How absolutely rude!
