I am having fun looking up famous people born the same year I was. Both Steve Jobs (miss you, Steve) and Bill Gates, for example! A fine year for entrepreneurs. Bill Paxton, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Billy Bob Thorton: a Bill-ish year, too. And this gorgeous actress, Lena Olin:
Ms. Olin is a Swedish actress whose first international notice came in the sensuous, serious film The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988). It’s a bittersweet movie, co-starring one of my movie husbands, Daniel Day-Lewis.
She’s appeared in over 40 films, including another personal favorite, Chocolat (2000), and one I have not seen yet but is on my list: The Reader (2008). She’s won Golden Globes and an Academy Award and countless accolades for her talent.

She has a natural, confident beauty and a glow that says “I am not too young, but don’t think about putting me in the corner!” Keep glowing, Lena Olin, age 57.
Have a fabulous Saturday, and don’t forget: Monday, November 5th is Visible Monday. Everyone is welcome to participate!
