Ridley Scott is celebrating his 82nd birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.
Popular director-producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Thelma & Louise, Alien, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 82nd birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Scott, a cultural icon
Born in South Shields on November 30, 1937, Ridley Scott's career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in British history. Scott's not just a great director, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Ridley hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Ridley Scott as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 82.
Happy Birthday, Ridley, you're the best!
