Happy November Birthday to ...

Tatum O'Neal, Lauren Hutton and other celebs turning 50, 60, 70 and 80 this month

  • 50: Tatum O’Neal

    En español | NOV. 5: She won an Oscar at age 10 for Paper Moon and was the little leaguer in The Bad News Bears who then followed the sad script of so many child stars. O'Neal wrestled with drug addiction for decades: She was arrested for buying crack in 2008, and went back to rehab last year. — Alex J. Berliner/AP Images

  • 50: Nicollette Sheridan

    NOV. 21: The English-born Sheridan found fame on CBS’s Knots Landing and later as one of ABC’s Desperate Housewives.

  • 60: Kate Capshaw

    NOV. 3: It wouldn’t hurt one’s Hollywood career to have a husband named Steven Spielberg, as Capshaw does, though she hasn’t acted in years. Her daughter from an earlier marriage, Jessica Capshaw, stars as Dr. Arizona Robbins on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. — Tony Barson/FilmMagic/Getty Images

  • 60: Dennis Miller

    NOV. 3: A liberal-seeming guy when he started out on Saturday Night Live in 1985, Miller later morphed into a gung-ho conservative whose wry political rants are featured on Fox News. He recently joked that global warming’s good, since “I'm always a little chilly anyway.” — Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic/Getty Image

  • 60: Kevin Nealon

    NOV. 18: Yes, yet another SNL veteran is hitting a milestone birthday.

  • 70: Randy Newman

    NOV. 28: He’s the multiple-award-winning musician and film-score composer who, to his professed chagrin, is most known for his satiric hit song “Short People” (they’ve “got no reason to live”). Newman was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

  • 80: Larry King

    NOV. 19: King has had seven wives and countless pairs of suspenders, worn throughout the 25 years he hosted CNN’s Larry King Live.
