America’s favorite pin-up girl turned 85 today. She’s most famous for her fetish photos and cool hairdo. After Bunny Yeager sent shots of Bettie to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, Hefner featured Page as the January 1955 Playmate of the Month, the centerfold model for the two-year-old Playboy magazine. In 1955, Bettie won the title “Miss Pinup Girl of the World.
Dark Horse Comics published a comic based on her fictional adventures in the 1990s. Eros Comics published several Bettie Page titles, the most popular being the tongue-in-cheek Tor Love Bettie which suggested a romance between Page and wrestler-turned-Ed Wood film actor, Tor Johnson. Today, she lives in obscurity as a little old granny, hanging out with her grandkids.
Jack Nicholson one of the most famous and beloved actors of all time turns 71. Jack has been nominated for an Academy Award 12 times and has won three time. When he was little, Jack was brought up thinking his grandparents were actually his PARENTS and his Mom was his sister. He was voted “Class Clown” in high school and started out as a go-fer in Hollywood for Hanna Barbera.
Over the years, Jack has been a naughty boy and has been notorious for being a “playboy”, with a place on Maxim’s “Top 10 Living Legends of Sex.” He has allegedly had sex with 2,000 women. He is also a close friend of film director Roman Polanski, whom he has supported through many personal crises including the death of his wife, Sharon Tate, at the hands of the Manson Family. He also supported Polanski through his conviction for statutory rape, a crime which took place on the Nicholson estate on Mulholland Drive. His street was nicknamed “Bad Boy Drive” because he lived on the same street as Warren Beatty. Today, he’s still going strong and recently starred in The Bucket List.
