Happy birthday to the actress who made blue skin beautiful. Rebecca Romijn’s signature role is Mystique in the X-Men movies, but not surprisingly she started out as a model. Romijn had high profile photo shoots for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Victoria’s Secret. She was the host of MTV’s House of Style from 1998 to 2000. Rebecca was married to actor John Stamos from 1998 – 2005 and is currently hitched to actor Jerry O’Connell. She and Jerry have twin 3-year-old daughters. Today is also the birthday of actor Ethan Hawke. His filmography includes Reality Bites, Training Day, Dead Poet’s Society and Assault on Precinct 13. Hawke was married to actress Uma Thurman from 1998 – 2004.
Both Rebecca and Ethan are in their 40s. Who’s older?
