Have you ever googled what celebrities you shared a birthday with just for the fun of it?
Long before Google, I was at the old Attias Flee Market in Sayville where the giant Target is now, and found one of these cutting edge wrestling magazines that told you the ‘behind the scenes” stories (this was 1989, before even the days of mom interrupting your download by picking up the phone to call Aunt Jackie).
In this magazine was a bio on my favorite wrestler, The Ultimate Warrior.
Real Name: James Brian Hellwig
Birthday…. JUNE 16th
I went ballistic.
My HERO shared a birthday with me!!!! Why was that so special? I still don’t know…. but its cool. Really cool.
Throughout the years I found out that I also share today as a birthday with Daniel Bruhl who plays Baron Zemo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Roberto Duran of “No Mas” Fame, and Tupac.
If you haven’t done it yet, or haven’t in a while. Google “Celebrities born on” and type in your birthday. It’s a fun little game and you might be surprise who you share your own personal special day with.
