Happy 90th birthday to classic movie star Doris Day! The actress and singer shared a birthday photo in front of her home in Carmel, California with People magazine holding a cute pooch. Day has been an animal rights activist for years through her Doris Day Animal Foundation.
Day was born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff, on April 3, 1924 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She began as a dancer, but a leg injury forced her to switch to singing. She became a favorite with several big bands and made her acting debut in "Romance on the High Seas" in 1948.
She made her best-known films opposite Rock Hudson, including the romantic comedies "Pillow Talk," "Lover Come Back," and "Send Me No Flowers." She took on more dramatic roles in the Hitchcock thriller "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and the biopic "Love Me or Leave Me," opposite James Cagney.
She was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for "Pillow Talk" and sang the Oscar-winning song "Que Sera Sera" as a pivotal plot point in "The Man Who Knew Too Much."
Day told People in 2011, "I love life. I have my pets around me and good friends. I'm young at heart and I love to laugh. There's nothing better."
