If you see Jennifer Love Hewitt today, wish her a happy birthday; she turns 27. And she's not the only one celebrating. Charlotte Church, the little "voice of an angel" soprano, turns 20. Musician Mark Arm from Mudhoney turns 44 and Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads will be (yikes) 57. This was Nina Simone's birthday too, but she's not around anymore for someone to put a little sugar in her bowl.

Another gone but not forgotten birthday girl is Anais Nin, the controversial author; the movie Henry and June was based on her diaries. Fight Club was based on the book by Chuck Palahniuk — he turns 44 today.

Writer-director Bob Rafelson (Five Easy Pieces) celebrates his 73rd birthday; actress Tyne Daly her 60th; Kelsey Grammer his 51st and Rue McClanahan, Blanche on the "Golden Girls," turns 72.

It's the 62nd birthday for Anthony Daniels, the man inside C-3PO since the very first Star Wars. And shhhhh... the most quietly powerful man in Hollywood, David Geffen, turns 63 today. He's probably not there, but you could stop by his beach house in Malibu to wave hello.
