Happy Birthday to Dev Patel, who turned the shiny age of 19 today! We gulped a little when we realized that this shooting star was born in 1990–a time when we were still adjusting the shoulder pads on our brightly-colored, oversized blazers–seeing how in his scant years of life he’s already managed to earn a black belt in Taekwondo, act in a Brit telly series, star in an Oscar-winning film, and scoop up a suitcase of performance awards (from SAG to Critics’ Choice, not to mention noms for BAFTA and NAACP). Our inferiority complex is becoming more complex by the second, just writing this.
We can only hope that this precocious overachiever keeps on scoring! And in a bajillion years, when he turns 21, we’d love to take him out for a drink.
