January and All Those Born in It!

I was amazed at this little line up and I only picked people that interested me but they are all people with an artistic flare. As people born in January are supposed to be, artistic, unique, talented and a little eccentric! See what you think after reading.

January with its misty weather and still chilly nights is not thought to be a romantic month at all in the UK.

Most days are bleak and painfully long as we wait for the arrival of spring, with its fresh new buds and the twitter of newborn birds.

But many a famous face appeared into this world throughout the month of hibernation.

I was amazed at this little line up and I only picked people that interested me but they are all people with an artistic flare. As people born in January are supposed to be, artistic, unique, talented and a little eccentric! See what you think after reading.

January 1st

1879.  E. M. Forster, he was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He wrote the novels, “A Room with a View” in 1908 and “Howard’s End” in 1910, to name two amongst many quite controversial stories. In 1971 he wrote “Maurice” that was a homosexual love story.

January 2nd

1938. David Bailey, he is a celebrated English photographer. He helped create the “Swinging London” in the 1960s: a culture of high fashion and celebrity chic. Here in the swinging sixties he captured images of famous London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray and the Beatles to name just a couple.

January 3rd

1956. Mel Gibson, he is widely known for his acting talents in films like “Mad Max,” “Lethal Weapon,” and “Brave Heart.” As well as staring in Brave heart, he also directed it and received the award fir best director.

January 6th

1955. Rowan Atkinson is an English comedian, actor and writer. His work is so extensive it would take up far to much time to name even a third of his work but he has to be best known for “Blackadder” and “Mr Bean,” He also did voice over in the Walt Disney’s film “The Lion King.”

    january is an isolated month attributed to the

    distant
    lonely

    slow moving planet SATURN

    thus all the qualities and

    pragmatism falls in thei share .

    Of course this is all true. lol
    We are also very charismatic and usually physically attractive people.
    Sometimes our eccentric qualities can make it difficult for people to understand us, or we feel misunderstood.
    I’ve reached the point now where I can spot people born in January or early Feb. by their behaviour.

    We sometimes clash with August people because we are leaders, just as they are.
    Alicia Keys and michelle Obama are also January born.

    Sorry, Michelle Obama.

    Before reading the article, I was guessing there’d be a Lisa Leverton in there.
    Good write, Lisa, but everyone knows that April is the month that spawned the most artistic.

    Guess which month I was born?

    Loved your list. I guess it won’t be a surprise that my favorite celebrity from that list is Mel Gibson- well, we are considering your fame to be made, right? : )

    May I add Kevin Costner for 18th of January? I loved his A Perfect World, The War, The Guardian and many more…: )

    Very nice article Lilly. I used to go to school with Anne Bronte, I used to write her essays for english. Bitch stole a couple of my stories. Didn’t know we shared the same birthday though.
    As for that Lisa Leverson I suspect she will go far.
