They say celebrities are just like the rest of us, and that’s true in that we all get older, no matter how much money we have. But the rich and famous can celebrate and mark their birthdays in a style the rest of us just dream of.
Let’s see who is going to be celebrating in style this month.
The legendary singer, songwriter and actress will turn 74 on December 1.
Whether she serenades her guests or they sing to her, Happy Birthday will ring out. Hollywood royalty, Bette’s career has spanned five decades and has earned her Grammys, Emmys, a Tony, and nominations for Oscars and other awards.
She has a home in Hawaii, her birthplace, on the island of Kilauea, which would be a great place to celebrate a December birthday.
She also owns a luxurious home in Hollywood, which has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. She has lived here part-time since 2002.
Because she spends a lot of time performing and working with theater, she may celebrate her birthday in her Dover, New York home, which she has owned since 2004.
Britney Spears has lived a lot in her 37 years. On December 2, she’ll celebrate her 38th birthday. Hopefully she’ll be surrounded by supportive family and friends as she rings in her new year.
Perhaps she’ll celebrate her birthday in her new Thousand Oaks, California home. She bought the home in 2015, which sits on 20 acres, for about $7.5 million. The 13,000+ square foot home has five bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, a pool, lounge area and a lot of space to relax.
Having recently returned home from a short stint in prison for her role in a college admissions scandal, actress Felicity Huffman will probably spend her 57th birthday on December 9 in a low-key celebration.
She could spend it at her exclusive Outpost Estates mansion, where she and her husband William H. Macy have lived since the late 1990s. They own multiple lots and homes in the neighborhood, increasing their privacy and real estate portfolio at the same time.
Hopefully her birthday celebration will help her forget her recent drama and focus on her family and loved ones.
Turning 96 on December 12, Bob Barker has been in Hollywood for over sixty years.
He’s almost certainly planning to celebrate his birthday at his home, which he worked to have designated historic-cultural monument due to its architecture and historical importance. The two-story Spanish colonial home has been in the news for other reasons, including when a car crashed into the outer wall of the home in June 2019.
Happy Birthday, Bob!
Samuel L. Jackson
The highest grossing actor in history, Samuel L. Jackson can afford to buy a lot of cake when he turns 71 on December 21. He and his wife Latanya have lived in a posh Beverly Hills neighborhood since 2000.
The 11,738 square foot house has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, and they bought it from Roseanne Barr for $8.35 million. This place would be perfect to celebrate the birthday for one of Hollywood’s most bad-ass celebrities, for sure.
Hollywood’s host with the most, Ryan Seacrest will turn 45 on December 24, and if his personal life is like his professional, his celebration will be full of toothy grins, perfectly coiffed celebrities, and fun memories.
While he may be in New York City taping Live with Kelly and Ryan or preparing for a holiday special, he may also be at home in his Hollywood Hills home, which he bought from Ellen DeGeneres, in 2007. The living room with 17 foot vaulted ceilings is big enough to host any group the star would likely host for his Christmas Eve birthday party.
Since he doesn’t have a Lakers game on his December 30 birthday, maybe LeBron James will be lucky enough to spend a few hours at his Brentwood California home with family, long enough to eat cake, open a few presents and even rest a little before the next basketball game, a home game on January 1.
He’s owned this home since 2015, when he paid $21 million for the mansion, and spends more time here since he transferred to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.
If he’s really lucky, he’ll spend some time in his epic mansion in Fairlawn, Ohio. The 30,000 square foot mansion was designed specifically for James, including a bowling alley, sports theater, in-home gym and massive master suite.
All hail King James, who has done more, worked harder and made more money in his soon-to-be 35 years than most of us will do in a lifetime
These are just a few of the celebrities who are celebrating this month. If you’re having a birthday then happy birthday to you, too!
