Cynthia Nixon turns 46 today, and the out actress is worthy of celebration. She's only one Oscar away from having an Egot, with a strong career in theater, television and film that dates back to 1979 at the age of 12. Here are our favorite Cynthia roles.
Miranda Hobbes, Sex and the City
As the cynical realist among a group of friends, Cynthia played the level-headed careerwoman-turned-mom with such great prowess, it's almost like she'll never be able to shake the role. Lucky for her, she's been working since she was a preteen and her chameleon-like qualities have allowed her to be one of the hardest-working women in Hollywood.
Sunshine, Little Darlings
In one of her first roles on film, a young Cynthia played a teenage hippie who was at the same camp as Kristy McNichol.

Big waves are tackled in a big way in Chasing Mavericks.
The 2012 sports drama film Chasing Mavericks tells the story of real-life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity and his dreams of conquering the biggest waves on Earth with his surfboard.
It all begins when 15 year old Jay (newcomer Johnny Weston) discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, considered to be one of largest and most daunting waves on the planet, is not only real, but exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler, How To Train Your Dragon) to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to accomplish the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms both their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing. »
