Born today, you know how to make the common uncommon, the usual unusual and the expected largely unexpected -- and all because you do things in a manner that is uniquely and forever your own. And those things are often not altogether unusual in themselves, but the way you do them gives them a new sheen, a new patina -- and they often yield entirely different results when you do them. You do not seek to be different, but you naturally bring something very special to everyday endeavors -- and others are often won over not only by what you do but by the way you do it. For you, style and substance are intertwined, and the one inevitably informs the other again and again.
Though you may seem hard on the outside, you are in fact quite sensitive and often overly emotional about your own personal affairs. It's not uncommon for the people who know you best to see you cry -- often for no apparent reason whatsoever!
Also born on this date are: Ernest Borgnine, actor; John Belushi, actor and comedian; Neil Diamond, singer; Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gymnast; Matthew Lillard, actor; Sharon Tate, actress; Aaron Neville, singer; Edith Wharton, novelist.
