From Dolly Parton to Sylvester Stallone and Pat Sajak, the roster of famous faces heading into their 75th year in 2021 is remarkable!

“Diamond jubilees” all around! 2021 sees the arrival of some incredible 75-year-olds, and we’re kicking off the list with former President George W. Bush. Ol’ W. turns 75 today, in fact, so join us in wishing him a very presidential birthday!

“Jenna Bush Hager’s dad, former President George W. Bush, is 75 on Tuesday, so she and Hoda Kotb give him a FaceTime call to celebrate,” Today cites via Bush Hager’s show, Hoda and Jenna.

So how is George W. celebrating his 75th? “He says he’s spending the day in Maine with his wife, Laura Bush,” the show adds. Utterly wholesome!

Alongside the former president, the roster of famous faces heading into their 75th year in 2021 is remarkable, indeed!

It’s almost hard to believe, but Stallone was born less than half a year after World War II ended. As for Sly, the action stalwart was born on July 6, 1946. Happy Birthday, Sly!

Next we have another Outsider favorite, Wheel of Fortune’s beloved host, Pat Sajak!

The television icon was born October 26, 1946, so we’ll be sure to wish him a fond 75th come this fall. And Pat is looking fantastic! Age is but a number, as Dolly Parton would say.

Another Hollywood favorite, Danny Glover, is also turning 75 this year!

Danny Glover was born July 22, 1946. Outsiders and beyond cherish Glover for his turn as Roger Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon franchise, and so much more. Just like Pat Sajak, Glover’s smile is as radiant at 75 as it was at 25.

That’s right, the one and only Dolly Parton is 75!

On December 18, 1946, one Steven Spielberg was born. Which, you guessed it, means the most celebrated director in modern cinema will turn 75 this December!

Like Dolly Parton, it’s hard to know where to begin with the gifts Spielberg has bestowed on mankind through entertainment.
