Just as everyone has an opinion, a favorite meal and a nose — albeit a fake one at times — so too does everyone have a birthday... even celebrities. Here at Birthday Bash, it's our mission to salute the fine actors, filmmakers and other Hollywood heroes that are celebrating their special day this week. After all, it's cheaper than mailing a cake!
This week, we're singing "Happy Birthday" to two television stars and a young musician who'd probably wince at our amateur singing!
Nick Jonas (September 16): As the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers, guitarist and vocalist Nick Jonas is also one of the most well-rounded. He has acted in several musicals including "Annie Get Your Gun," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Les Miserables," and still has had time for his own musical career.
Having recently graduated high school, Nick has reportedly given some thought to pursuing higher education. Such a move would only further his many accomplishments, though it's hard to say how college would effect his role in the Jonas Brothers. Whatever he decides to do, we at Hollywood Crush wish him only the best.
Heidi Montag (September 15): Frankly, how could we not wish a happy birthday to "The Hills" star Heidi Montag? Since her very small debut on "Laguna Beach," Heidi has since achieved stardom entirely on her own right — well, maybe with a little help from husband Spencer Pratt — boasting many television appearances, including her ill-fated "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here!"
As Heidi's career continues — with or without Spencer — it's only a matter of time before she attempts Hollywood's movie scene. While she's no stranger to the bright lights of celebrity, here's hoping that Heidi pursues smaller roles first.
Alexis Bledel (September 16): Hollywood Crush readers most likely remember Alexis Bledel for her long-running role as Rory Gilmore on the television series "Gilmore Girls," or maybe its for her turn as Lena Kaligaris in the "Sister of the Traveling Pants" movies. But Alexis has plenty of other roles to her name, including her film debut in "Tuck Everlasting" and her decidedly more mature stint in Frank Miller's "Sin City."
While it's great to see Alexis take off on the big screen, there's something about watching the actress on a weekly basis that we very much miss. Her guest-starring role in the "ER" finale made us wish for the actress's television return ... but not at the expense of her blossoming movie career, of course!
Check back next week for an all-new Birthday Bash!
