Happy Birthday, Gabrielle Anwar: 5 videos to celebrate the 'Burn Notice' star's 44th birthday

  • Pop2it
Gabrielle Anwar turns 44 on Feb. 4, 2014. To celebrate an actress who has danced with Al Pacino, slept with Superman in the Renaissance and blown up about a million things in "Burn Notice," here are four videos that best show how cool Anwar really is.

The only proper way to start any retrospective of Anwar is with one of her first roles, in the 1991 Disney movie "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken," which helped catapult her onto the scene.

In her 1992 film, "Scent of a Woman." Anwar and Pacino gave that film a tango for the ages.

Bonus: A very young Chris O'Donnell!

If the tango wasn't sexy enough for you, Anwar's later role on "The Tudors" should help. Anwar played Princess Margaret Tudor on the show and made a great deal of love to Charles Brandon, the 1st Duke of Suffolk -- played by Henry Cavill (later Superman).

Warning: Parts of this video are very Nsfw.

Oh sure, I learned all about betting on them, and odds, and all the things kids my age weren't supposed to be learning, but the sight of watching these majestic creatures racing on the track was a glorious one to behold for me. I think my parents always took me with them because they knew how much I enjoyed watching them. That and I was really good at picking straight bet winners.

Horses, to me, are the most majestic of creatures. They're used to race, to work, to show, and as transportation for many, many centuries. They're gorgeous animals that tend to form quite a bond with their riders and owners. Horses have been the main

My Movie Crush: Michael Schoeffling in 'Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken'

My Movie Crush: Michael Schoeffling in 'Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken'
I already know what you Jakettes are going to say. How could I possibly crush more on Michael Schoeffling as a Depression-era diving horse showman instead of his more famous turn as Sixteen Candles' Jake Ryan, the most perfect senior boy to ever attend high school anywhere, ever, period, end of story? Well, here's what I say to you: of course Jake Ryan is the bees' knees, and quite possibly one of the dreamiest love interests ever to make teenage hearts swoon. But if you're a true fan of model-turned-actor who all but disappeared after his brief seven year acting career, then you hold Michael Schoeffling's last screen credit close to your wild heart because your crush on the man extends beyond his turn as Jake Ryan. And that crush cannot be broken.

In truth, I took the backwards route of getting to know the all-too brief film career of Michael Schoeffling.
