Born today, you tend to take yourself and your work very seriously, but you also enjoy yourself fully when you are fully committed to a given project. As the adage says, "the harder you work, the more fun you will have" -- and you seem to prove this time and time again. You have what it takes to be one of the greats, or at least to be long remembered, and yet you do not spend a lot of time thinking about greatness or longevity. You simply want to do your best and to win the praise and admiration of your peers -- for their opinions are the ones that matter most to you.
You won't have to combine business and pleasure very often in your lifetime, and this is a good thing, for when these two very different aspects of your life come into proximity, a great deal of confusion and upheaval can result. You want to keep your priorities straight at all times, and to keep things clearly delineated.
Also born on this date are: Shirley Temple Black, actress and ambassador; Valerie Bertinelli, actress; Sandra Dee, actress; Jan Hooks, actress and comedian; Vladimir Nabokov, novelist; William Shakespeare, playwright and poet; Lee Majors, actor; Roy Orbison, singer.
