Born today, you don't always have to play the leading role, for you are perfectly able to make the most of supporting parts. Indeed, there are times when you may even prefer them, as they often exert less pressure on you and burden you with fewer responsibilities. You are confident and capable, and you know that no matter how visible you are, you will surely be able to make a lasting impression. You love an audience, and yet you are perfectly content to spend time on your own. You take things very seriously, but you are also quite able to laugh at yourself, others and all manner of situations as they arise.
Disappointment in your life is likely to foster a kind of appreciation for the good things that others may never develop. You know how to take your knocks without letting yourself sink into an abyss of self-pity. Rather, you pull yourself up by your bootstraps and have another go -- confident that things will turn out better next time.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Gillies, actress; Sandra Bullock, actress; Mick Jagger, singer; Kate Beckinsale, actress; Kevin Spacey, actor; Helen Mirren, actress; Vivian Vance, actress; Stanley Kubrick, filmmaker; Dorothy Hamill, Olympic figure skater; Gracie Allen, actress and comedian; George Bernard Shaw, playwright; Aldous Huxley, author; Jason Robards, actor; Carl Jung, scientist and psychologist; Olivia Williams, actress.
