Happy Birthday: Bette Midler

Born: December 1, 1945 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

Married to: Martin von Haselberg (16 December 1984 – present) (1 child)

[when asked by Parade magazine whether she will retire after her show in Las Vegas] I think so. I must say, my high kick is just as high as it ever was, thanks to tai chi. But everything is a bit slower. The mind – things don’t stick the way they used to. I feel like I’m going out with a bang. It’s something my husband and I have talked about. I certainly don’t want to die in harness. I’m not one of those people.

I want world peace. Please. Just for my sake, before I go. I also hope that Meryl Streep has the good taste to step aside and let the rest of us have a crack… but I know she won’t. She has a really good agent. She’s great, but I know there are some ladies behind her saying, “Meryl, for God’s sake, do you have to say yes to everything?”.
