Celebrity Birthdays Today: Richard Gere, Sara Ramirez, Deborah Gibson & More!

August 31, 2011

In today’s edition of Celebrity Birthdays Today, a ‘Go-Go’ turns 54, a ‘Wallflower’ is 41, and a ‘Scorpion’ turns 63. Guess who else is celebrating today?

Richard Gere

Happy Birthday, Richard Gere! The Pretty Woman actor turns 62 years old today. The trailer for his latest flick, The Double, has been released (check it out below), and I am looking forward to this thriller, due out on September 23rd. Gere plays a retired CIA agent who joins forces with a young FBI operative played by Topher Grace to investigate the murder of a Senator, whose death is thought to be at the hands of a Russian killer, presumed dead for several years.

Sara Ramirez

Happy Birthday, Sara Ramirez! The Grey’s Anatomy star is 36 years old today. To say that Sara’s GA character Callie and her partner Arizona had a rough time last season is an understatement. Will their angst spill over into Season 8? Rhimes said, “They went through so much last season. There was a lot of darkness. I sort of want them to get to be in the light this year. We’re going to enjoy them as mothers, see[ing] what motherhood does to their sex life, their relationship, and their work life.” Well, thank God! I don’t know if I could watch another season of these two with a dark cloud hanging over them! Grey’s Anatomy will premiere its eighth season on September 22nd.

Deborah Gibson

Happy Birthday, Deborah Gibson! The ‘Foolish Beat’ singer turns 41 years old today. Gibson and Tiffany, another 80’s teen pop star, recently wrapped up their summer tour, Journey Through the 80’s. The tour stopped in six cities and for those who attended, allowed all who grew up during that time to feed their nostalgia. Admit it, you know all the words to ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ and ‘Lost in Your Eyes’. Didn’t these two have some sort of rivalry back then? Nope, Gibson told USA Today, ‘It’s been mutual admiration, always.” Earlier this year they teamed up for the Syfy horror, Mega Python vs Gatoroid. Check out Rachelle’s interviews with them here and here.
