Who's your celebrity twin?

Post by Andy Thomson » Thu Jul 30, 2009 6:26 pm

Following on from the "number 1 when you were born thread", which celebrity do you share a birthday with (i.e. same year, not just same date). As far as I can find out, the only celebrity born on the same day as me was Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys! :evil:

I have 2 people who share my exact birthday. They're probably not well known names, but they're actors Shane Lyons and Maiara Walsh (she's currently on Desperate Housewives apparently!)

I used to share the same birthday with Rihanna, until it was revealed it was 2 days later! :evil:

EDIT: And also a South Korean singer called Max :!:

ones I've heard of:

Barry Bridges - ex Chelsea footballer
Jonah Barrington - former world champion squash player

and ones I haven't:

Toney Anaya - US Democrat politician
Norma Bixby - another US Democrat

If I were to follow the example of a few others here, and ignore year, I could include such stars as:

Thomas Beecham
Malcolm Sargeant
Duke Ellington
Callum Laddiman

but I wont, as it would suggest that I can't read the OP properly.

Apparently, Barack Obama and Billy Bob Thornton! And the Queen Mother, but she's dead so probably doesn't count any more.

[edit] Oh right, same day same year. Um, no-one, then.

She came, she saw - oh well, at least she tried!

Hang on, I've found one. Not a household name, although maybe he is in America. Over to you, Jason!

What the fuck are you people finding so difficult to understand about "same year"?!!! Exactly the same birthday - not the same fucking anniversary. Sheesh - morons! :twisted: ;)

Very good call. For me....no-one, absolutely no-one. Nor any deaths. However, last yearI found out, thanks to Stuart Marconi, that Ringo Starr was having his tonsils out the day I was born.

Jeff Gordon?! I don't follow NASCAR, but as a follower of motor racing in general I consider him to be a pretty big name. That's a good one!

But does he jack in the trade of the two above him?

The footballer Nathan Ellington shares my exact date of birth. Same day different year would allow Lindsay Lohan, Kenneth Clarke, Larry David and Peter Kay, amongst others. Plus the baseball players José Canseco and Ozzie Canseco. They were born on the exact same day, but I guess that's not a coincidence....

Dagoberto, a Brazilian footballer who's never actually played for the Brazialian senior national team from what I can tell.

If we don't count the same year, then I get Andrew-Lloyd Webber and William Shatner, which explains my level of musical 'talent'.

Oh ....... and it was the day after the Munich air disaster.

Nobody the sane year, though it's International Astrology Day ;)

A good assortment from other years - e.g.

Fourier
Mussorgsky
Pierre Renoir, the director
Skalkottas
Paul Tortelier
Russ Meyer
Peter Brook

Wikipedia mentions several pop musicians, but I don;t know whether any of them could be called celebrities. :?:
