Today is a special day for Renée Zellweger, Hank Azaria and Len Goodman – it’s their birthday! To wish them the best, we take a look at how they might be celebrating – and what is going on in their lives at the moment!
Renée Zellweger turns 49
Happy birthday to Bridget Jones actress Renée Zellweger! She could be celebrating on this side of the pond this year – the Texas-born star has been spending a lot of time in London’s East End lately, as she films for Judy, a biopic film based on Hollywood singer and actress Judy Garland. Last week, Renée looked unrecognisable as she transformed into Judy, donning a dark short-haired wig and vintage clothes. Earlier this year, Renée spoke about how she loved reprising her role as the iconic Bridget Jones for the 2016 Bridget Jones’ Baby movie, and hopes to star in a fourth instalment of the franchise. “I really hope so,” Renée said of the prospect, "I love her. She’s so much fun."

Hank Azaria turns 54
Happy Birthday to Hank Azaria, who voices many legendary characters in The Simpsons! Hank, who starred as Phoebe’s geeky lover David in the hit sitcom Friends, has had a lot to celebrate recently. He has just released the second season of Brockmire, a comedy TV series based around a baseball commentator. “It’s my favourite thing I’ve ever done,” says Hank.

Len Goodman turns 74
Today is ballroom dancing legend Len Goodman’s 74th birthday! After retiring as Head Judge on much-loved dancing show Strictly Come Dancing after 11 years, Len has continued to appear as a judge on Dancing with the Stars, the American version of Strictly. But just recently, Len hinted he may be leaving the stateside show too, saying, “I don’t want to retire totally but I’m quite happy doing nothing – reading a book and pottering in the garden.”
