gwyneth paltrowToday, September 27, is almost over -- but did you even know that today is inarguably one of the most important days in history?! No?? Well, you can just thank your lucky stars there's still a little time left to celebrate, because not only is today is Gwyneth Paltrow's birthday ... it's her 40th birthday!! That's like a regular birthday with extra GOOP on top! And to think, you almost missed it!

Oh, and by the way? Today, September 27, is also Lil Wayne's birthday. Which is pretty fascinating, at least from an astrological standpoint. I mean, the day on which a person is born is supposed to be pretty meaningful, right? People born on the same day, theoretically, should have a lot in common. Which begs the question, what might Gwyneth Paltrow and Lil Wayne have in common?

Do they use the same fishmonger, perhaps? Maybe they share an affinity for European-style dinner parties or foreign language cartoons. Personally, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they both had God on speed dial. But enough with the speculation. For proof that Gwynnie and Wayne are two peas in a pod, just check out the following quotes:

"I am who I am. I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year." Gwyneth Paltrow

"I gotta die with money cuz I wasnt born with it." Lil Wayne

"I'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can." Gwyneth Paltrow

"I'll never f*ck with no more coke. It's not about a bad high, it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out, and I'm a pretty boy." Lil Wayne

"Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, 'Another romantic comedy?' You see her in something like Walk the Line and think, 'God, you're so great!' And then you think, 'Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?' But of course, it's for money and status." Gwyneth Paltrow

"If you need an example for how to live, then you just shouldn't even have been born. Straight up." Lil Wayne

I know, I know -- the similarities are downright eerie. Clearly these two need to record a duet, kind of like that one Gwyneth Paltrow did with Huey Lewis! Except, not at all.

Happy birthday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lil Wayne!!

Do you think these two share anything besides the same bday?
