 Born: October 27, 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Married to: Majandra Delfino (18 March 2011 – present) (2 children)

That’s what I like about acting. You don’t know where you’ll be in year.

My family took me to church when I was like 4 years old, and I had to be in a pageant, and I was playing Jesus.

I grew up around a lot of feminine energy.

[on Clint Eastwood] Hardest thing in the world is to do nothing and he does it marvelously.

I’m not a violent man . . . There are many other things that happen in our lives other than crime and violence and I think, as long as we do them entertainingly, then what’s wrong with doing them?

[on editing] If you shake a movie, ten minutes will fall out.

[in his last-ever interview in August 2012] My greatest pleasure in life is a completely appointment-less day with nothing to do. It means I can read a book, listen to the radio and do exactly as I wish. If you are going to do a film properly you have to give yourself completely to it. You can’t slip in and slip out again. You give it the business. My diary now is free, completely free. That’s the way I like it. I only do what I want to do.

Happy Birthday: Seth MacFarlane

sethmacfarlane.jpgSeth MacFarlane

Born: October 26, 1973 in Kent, Connecticut, USA

The only way it [criticism] gets to me is that it demonstrates a deterioration of the power of restrained, critical, rational thought that was once more ubiquitous in our society. In the sixties and seventies there was such a high regard in this country for the achievements of human beings in science, in technology, in space exploration. And in some ways we’ve turned into this wimpy, astrology-loving, angel-loving, pseudo-scientific culture that no longer has that ability. We’ve gotten lazy in our willingness to use our brains.

When you are in a room and your job is to write jokes 10 hours a day, your mind starts going to strange places.

Happy Birthday: Samantha Isler

Born: October 26, 1998 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA

I know a lot of people who say they want to leave Tulsa and go off to L.A. or New York City. But I can’t wait to come back to Tulsa. It’s a great place to be.

Christmas is a huge thing in my family. We usually start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. We spend Christmas Eve with one set of grandparents, and Christmas Day with the other grandparents and our family.

Happy Birthday: Cary Elwes

Born: October 26, 1962 in London, England, UK

(On making The Princess Bride (1987)) It was a wonderfully supportive set, and that’s a great atmosphere for being creative. An atmosphere of fun, is an atmosphere where the mind is more likely to come up with great stuff.
