Story highlights Happy birthday to 2018’s notable celebrity birthdays.
Hollywood’s biggest names like Hugh Jackman, Padma Lakshmi and Sofia Vergara are all celebrating their birthdays in December 2018.
You may have already thought your last annual birthdays were behind you, but you’ll still have to mark your calendar every year, since a star’s birthday lands on the seventh day of the seventh month.
That’s right. If you don’t believe us, check out this post on the first ever December birthdays!
Celebrity birthdays — many of which are surely behind the headlines around the world — can often lend themselves to intense speculation. Who isn’t wondering what the big news behind an upcoming year’s announcement might be?
But one easy way to reveal the word that most of these big birthdays have this year is to simply look to what it is that the star is doing at the time of this year’s celebration. For instance, Richard Gere — who celebrated his 71st birthday on December 4 — is reprising his role as a recovering alcoholic in “The Boy Next Door.” Likewise, Chrissy Teigen, who turned 32 on December 3, is serving up wine for a good cause with wine auction. And Joaquin Phoenix’s new flick, “You Were Never Really Here,” debuted a little earlier this year. Then there’s Bono, who celebrated his 60th birthday on December 4, and what fans already know is that he’s still active with U2 in its creative phase.
So, with each mention of a star’s upcoming birthday on these last five dates of the year, we remind you to check out what’s in store for these stars in 2018.
