I was born in 1981.

I’d like to think it was a good vintage, that year. My wife was born in 1981, too, and I think she’s good.

But the three most famous people in Australia I can think of who were born in 1981 are three of my least favourite people in the world –

  • Britney Spears and Paris Hilton – the trashy, raunchy twins epitomising everything that’s wrong with celebrity culture, with being famous for being famous.
  • Lleyton Hewitt – a tennis brat whose temper tantrums and arrogance are embarrassing.

Natalie Portman, nearly as famous, is a better ambassador for 1981 – slightly. 

Who are the most famous people born in your year?
