Spears turns 28, while Downey Jr. turns 54 and Blaine rings in 46.
While Blaine is celebrating his birthday, it’s been a tough week for the magician who made headlines earlier this week when the NYPD confirmed they are investigating sexual assault claims against him — which he has denied. Spears has also had a tough time lately after it was revealed on Wednesday that her older sister, Britney Spears, checked into a wellness facility.
Meanwhile, Downey Jr. was in the news last month for a much lighter reason when he waged a battle of looks against some of his “Avengers” castmates. The actor, who plays “Iron Man” in the series, unveiled the competition on Twitter and included a split image of himself, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans, each of whom were shown sporting mustaches and asked fans, “Who wore it best?”
