Jennifer Capriati was born on the same day as me but not the same year. She was a tennis player. She was actually born on March,29,1976. But I'm born on March,29,2002. I saw a lot of other people born on March,29 but Jennifer Capriate is one. So is 36 years old (I did the math). she is a very important girl to me. A lot of people that are born on the same day are important to me.

I was born on June 22, 2002. One of the famous actress named Meryl Streep shared the same birth date with me. I have never heard of her before. She is famous because her acting is great and suited to the role of her characters in the movies. Streep began her career on the New York stage in the late 1960s and appeared in several Broadway productions, including a 1977 revival of the Anton Chekhov drama The Cherry Orchard. Meryl Streep broke into films in the 1970s with a role in the drama Julia (1977). In 1979, her portrayal of a woman who abandons her family only to come back and fight for custody of her son in Kramer vs. Kramer brought Streep her first Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actress. Streep won her second Academy Award—her first for Best Actress—for her work on this film. She received Academy Award nominations in Out of Africa (1985), Carrie Fisher's novel Postcards from the Edge (1990) and Robert James Waller's romantic drama The Bridges of Madison County (1995), in which she starred opposite Clint Eastwood. In 2002, she appeared in two critically acclaimed films — The Hours and Adaptation. I think she is awesome because she was in many popular movies and musicals.

I found out that Rosie Perez, shares my date of birth. Rosie Perez is an actress, choreographer and director. She has been in films such as "Do the Right Thing, and Fearless." I had not heard of her before but when I read about her I think she has accomplished a lot for someone who didn't want to be an actress to begin with. I think it would be very cool to be in movies.
