A special happy birthday to Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson and Harry Potter actor Brendan Gleeson. These stars are toasting their birthdays on 29 March with their loved ones, and to mark the occasion, we take a look at what they have been doing recently…

Elle Macpherson turns 54

The Australian beauty is one of the world's most beloved models, and is often referred to as 'The Body'. She has walked the runways for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Christian Dior and Thierry Mugler. But not only that, Elle has even made appearances on TV - including US sitcom Friends and reality TV series Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model. Elle, who split from her husband Jeffrey Soffer last summer, regularly shares her fitness and diet secrets. She previously admitted to Your Fitness magazine: "At 52, I now know that a healthy mind and body is a balance of nutrition, exercise, intuition, experience and love, I really believe that. I'm less concerned about the number on the scales or what dress size I wear now compared to when I was younger."

Brendan Gleeson turns 63

Irish actor Brendan is most famous for starring in In Bruges, Troy, Cold Mountain and as Mad-Eye Moody in the Harry Potter films. But more recently, the star appeared alongside Julie Walters, Hugh Bonneville, Hugh Grant and Sally Hawkins in Paddington 2. He also won an Emmy award for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in war movie Into the Storm. Earlier this month, Brendan returned to the small screen in the TV series Mr Mercedes, in which he plays a retired police detective haunted by a serial killer. The dad of Domhnall Gleeson recently opened up about his late start in the acting world, telling Stuff: "I wasn't aggressive and proactive, except when I was teaching in school, for example. I'd put on plays, and I'd bring them off because I found, well that's what I should be doing. But with regard to my own stuff, I didn't believe I'd have that self-motivation."
