Happy September Birthday to ...

Julio Iglesias, Amy Irving and other celebs who will turn 50, 60, 70 and 80 this month

  • Malcolm Gladwell attends the Tropfest New York 2013 Film Festival (LAN/Corbis)

    50: Malcolm Gladwell

    En español | SEPT. 3: It's hard to remember when one of Gladwell's books hasn't been on the best-seller list (The Tipping PointBlink, Outliers). Drawn to counterintuitive ideas, The New Yorker writer will surely hit the list anew with David and Goliath, about how underdogs sometimes win.

    50: Richard Marx

    SEPT. 16: The Grammy-winning rock guy with the night-themed '80s ballads ("Endless Summer Nights," "Hold On to the Nights"), Marx lives in Chicago, still performs and is a big jokester on Twitter. Example: "So if you literally cannot control what you tweet … is that Twittourette Syndrome?"

    60: Amy Irving

    SEPT. 10: Irving's first big part was in the film version of Stephen King's 1973 novel Carrie. She wed Steven Spielberg in 1985 and received $100 million when they divorced within four years. Now married to a documentary filmmaker, Irving has lately been more involved with stage than screen.

    60: Rita Rudner

    SEPT. 17: The comedienne has described herself as "cynically silly." She has a regular gig at the Venetian in Las Vegas and in 2009 performed (nervously) for President Obama. A classic Rudner quip: "You have to let your husband be himself [in bed], and you have to pretend he's someone else."

    70: Roger Waters

    SEPT. 6: The Pink Floyd bassist and lyricist based the legendary 1979 album The Wall on his life. His current The Wall Live tour got weird in July when props at a Belgium concert included an inflatable black pig emblazoned with the Star of David. Some called it anti-Semitic, which Waters denied.

    SEPT. 23: The Spanish crooner has sold some 300 million records, and this year he was honored as China's "most popular international artist of all time" (he's huge there). He's now on a world tour with no plans to retire. He told a Mexican journalist, "It would be like dying on the inside."

    80: Robert Blake

    SEPT. 18: As a kid he was a little rascal on Our Gang and later played real-life killer Perry Smith in 1967's In Cold Blood. He also was arrested, then acquitted, in his wife Bonny Lee Bakley's 2001 murder, which apparently inspired his recent rant on CNN about "those rotten, bastard cops."
