Film Celebrities from Michigan celebrating their birthdays in October

Posted by

October is here, and in the northern hemisphere that often means the days are flush with falling leaves, chilling weather, and growing anticipation for the holiday season. The tenth month by our Gregorian and Julian calendars and the sixth of seven months to have a length of 31calendar.

The name October is derived from the Latin octo, which means eight in Latin, and shares a root with octopus and. octothorpe. It dates back more than 2000 years to the ancient Roman calendar, which was replaced by the Julian calendar in 45 BCE.

Those born in October are either Libras (born between September 24 and October 23) or Scorpios (October 24 to November 22). Known for being passionate, loyal but rather stubborn, babies born in October are also quite charmingand make for good romantic partners. Ruled by Venus, they create harmony and are known as the “peacemakers.” Hard working and determined, those born in October are all about business.

If you were born in October,  you are in good company.  Here are Michigan-born film celebrities born in the tenth month.
