and thirty two is also how old I am today.

I share my birthday today with Lynda Carter ( Wonderwoman ), Anna Paquin ( Rogue of the X-men), Summer Glau ( River Tam of Firefly), Eric Szmanda ( Greg of CSI ) and Jennifer Lopez ( of the Big Butt ) :D

Thanks to Wikipedia for the information and my friend Doms for the idea.
