Born today, you are often perfectly happy being in the background as long as there is someone who will listen to what you have to say about the proceedings, for you are confident that you have much to offer that is quite valuable. You are never one to watch what you say for fear of being misunderstood; on the contrary, when you are given the chance to share your feelings, you do so in a completely open, unabashed manner, often using words and expressions that surprise the listener. You certainly do know how to embrace propriety when it is absolutely necessary, but you never enjoy standing on ceremony; you much prefer behaving in a natural, spontaneous fashion.
You are likely to be widely admired for your ability to weather all manner of hardships, accidents and setbacks. Indeed, that is perhaps the one thing that really sets you apart from the pack; you know how to persevere, and you make a regular practice of it. You're never one to balk at difficulty.
Also born on this date are: Sarah Michelle Gellar, actress; Abigail Breslin, actress; Loretta Lynn, singer; Adrien Brody, actor; Pete Rose, baseball player; Robert Carlyle, actor; Anne Sullivan, teacher; Julie Christie, actress; Anthony Michael Hall, actor; Greg Maddux, baseball player; Rod Steiger, actor; Sir John Gielgud, actor; Shani Wallis, actress and singer.
