Happy Birthday P.J. Soles!
This turned out to be a coincidence. I was watching Private Benjamin, the 80's movie starring Goldie Hawn..still quite funny. And lo and behold P.J. Soles was in it. I didn't recall her being in it but there she was. And it was funny because the following year she starred in Bill Murray's army comedy, Stripes. Anyway it's her birthday today and she turns 61. And she looks fabulous. Most known as one of the teens from the original Halloween and that other 70's horror pic Carrie. Some surprise facts I did not know about her though was that she auditioned for the part of Princess Leia in Star Wars and was married to actor Dennis Quaid from 1978 - 1983. Learn something new everyday. Happy Birthday P.J. By the way P.J. stands for Pamela Jaynes.
