Just 24 short years ago, eminent comedienne and Hollywood muse Emma Stone came into the world. Since then, the sometimes-blonde, sometimes-redhead, always-adorable starlet has consistently graced the movie world with her impeccable comic timing and that irresistibly smoky voice.

It seems Katy Perry’s not taking Taylor Swift’s sage advice – she appears to be back together with John Mayer. The two were photographed side-by-side in New York on Tuesday night while celebrating Mayer’s 35th birthday at ABC Kitchen. The musical couple supposedly split in August after a whirlwind courtship lasting all of two months, and I predicted (inaccurately, drat) that he’d hook up with Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stewart next.

One score and 11 years ago, Mathew and Tina Knowles brought forth on this continent a new diva, conceived in Texas and dedicated to the proposition that all ’90s pop stars are not created equal. The same year that she reached legal voting age, a fresh-faced Beyoncé found superstardom as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child. And 13 summers later, she’s still one of pop culture’s heaviest hitters.
Today, Bey turns 31 — the age at which women are most beautiful, if a QVC poll is to be believed. But Mrs. Jay-Z has been and will be fierce at any age. So, in honor of the occasion — and this funky single from 4 — let’s count down precisely why we love Queen B so. Here are five reasons to get the ball rolling.
5. Because she knows the show must go on, even when one of your girls takes a tumble. Proof:
We all have stories of movies being ruined by people talking through them in the theater. Today, let’s celebrate that time a movie experience actually restored our faith in humanity.
Last night, I went to see Singin’ in the Rain on the big screen, in honor of the film’s 60th anniversary and the fact that today would have been Gene Kelly’s 100th birthday. I was with a friend who’s also a huge Gene Kelly fan, and I told her we should elbow each other each time one of us begins to tear up from pure happiness. Normally, if I’m planning on writing about a movie, I’ll take notes, but I just wanted to enjoy this. I lost count of how many times we nudged each other. I also couldn’t tell you how many times I got chills, or how many times I looked over and saw my friend grinning larger than ever before (I’ve known her 15 years now), or how many times I thought, how long have I been smiling?

Lindsay Lohan turns 26 today, and here at PopWatch headquarters we would like to sincerely wish Lohan a happy (and sober) birthday.
As in the past, Lohan’s 25th year has had its ups and downs, but she seems to be on an upswing. She hosted a highly rated episode of Saturday Night Live and finally got off probation in March. She also started filming a Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, playing Elizabeth Taylor, and generated positive press in some early photos from the film. She also shot a guest-starring role on Glee in the spring, sending up her image as a troubled starlet.
Of course, Lohan’s also hit a few…speedbumps. She’s still struggling behind the wheel, crashing her Porsche into a truck last month, and suffering from exhaustion on the set of Liz & Dick. She posed for Playboy in December, and last week got herself into hot water for a series of sultry photos (complete with a gun!) that sparked controversy. READ FULL STORY
What better way to celebrate one’s upcoming 40th birthday than to pose for Playboy? I would have gone with a cake and a box or three of wine. I’m living my life all wrong.
Supposedly this wax figurine to your right is Love in the Wild host Jenny McCarthy. Let’s check out her entire airbrushed naked body below and see if it’s a match!
Hey, nerds! Who’s got two thumbs, speaks limited French, and celebrates her 42nd birthday today? That’s right: Tina Fey, creator of 30 Rock, writer of Mean Girls, and overall funny-lady legend. Let’s recognize the occasion by high-fiving a million angels — and remembering some of Fey’s greatest creations.
If you’re searching for the perfect gift for Fey, look no further than J.C. Penney — where you’ll find plenty of denim with nine-inch zippers and casual front pleats. Saturday Night Live‘s then-head writer penned this classic ode to unflattering pants in 2003; it’s still among the show’s funniest fake commercials.
Trying to choose your favorite quote from this teen comedy is harder than navigating the high school cafeteria. Luckily, this video saves you the trouble by compiling all of the movie’s best moments into one handy montage. Four for you, YouTube! You go, YouTube!
For someone who’s been around for nearly half a millennium, William Shakespeare certainly knows how to stay current. In honor of the Bard’s big day, we’ve assembled a few of our favorite more recent classics that have done justice to his work (and, no, Anonymous didn’t make the list). Check out the clips below and share your favorite Shakespearean takes on film in the comments below!
Chris Hemsworth. Ryan Gosling. Taylor Kitsch. Channing Tatum. Michael Fassbender. All leading men and rising stars, all in their late 20s or early 30s, all with the potential for great careers that could potentially span decades.
And all of them would likely give their eye teeth to enjoy even half the moxie, talent, acclaim, and success as Jack Nicholson, who turns 75 years old today. Our sister site LIFE.com is looking back at some never-before-seen outtakes from a 1969 LIFE magazine shoot at Nicholson’s Los Angeles home, when the future three-time Oscar winner was 32 years old and had had far less high-profile success than any of those aforementioned strapping gentlemen already enjoy today. He’d just come off a standout role in Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider — a role that won him his first Oscar nomination, for best supporting actor — but otherwise, Nicholson had only done some TV guest spots (The Andy Griffith Show, Dr. Kildare) and several films by Z-movie auteur Roger Corman. And yet, as you can see from the two outtakes below, he was still unmistakably Jack: READ FULL STORY
