Once again we're wishing some of our readers and favourite stars a very happy birthday! Here at HELLO!, we are taking a look at all the famous faces who will be toasting their birthdays on April 8. From Hollywood icons to a noted fashion queen, we think these A-listers will have the most amazing time celebrating with their loved ones. Take a look below to see who is celebrating today:

Robin Wright turns 52

The House Of Cards actress will no doubt celebrate her special day with her French beau Clement Giraudet, whom she has been linked with since September 2017. Robin, who has starred in hits such as The Princess Bride, Forest Gump and Wonder Woman, was previously married to Dane Witherspoon from 1986 to 1988 and Sean Penn from 1996 to 2010. The actress is set to take the lead in the sixth and final season of House Of Cards since it was revealed that her co-star Kevin Spacey has been removed over allegations of sexual misconduct.

Patricia Arquette turns 50

She comes from an acting dynasty, but Patricia will be remembered for her role in Boyhood, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2015. A year later, Patricia was left heartbroken when her sister Alexis Arquette passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. Alexis was born Robert Arquette in LA in 1969, but in 2007 underwent sex reassignment surgery with the support of her family. In the past, Patricia has been open about her sister's transitioning, saying: "I feel like Alexis, my sister, has taught me so much about love and acceptance. It's a very difficult thing to be transgender, especially 20 years ago when Alexis started... You have to be so brave to live this truth of who you are."

Dame Vivienne Westwood turns 77

This legendary fashion icon is one of the world's most famous designers, with Princess Eugenie and Kate Middleton both seen in her designs. As well as fashion, Dame Vivienne is also a political activist, who has launched a range of T-shirts for the civil rights group Liberty. In 2014, she shaved off all of her hair in order to raise awareness for climate change and fracking. More recently, Dame Vivienne has called upon supermarkets to take urgent action in a bid to reduce the UK's plastic pollution problem.
