On Saturday, one of Hollywood’s most beloved child actors reminded the rest of us how old we are, as Jonathan Lipnicki celebrated his 21st birthday. Lipnicki, of course, played the adorably precocious Ray Boyd in 1997’s Jerry Maguire, telling the titular character (Tom Cruise) random facts like how much the human head weighs and that bees can smell fear. We believe it was also the last time that Renee Zellweger was able to open her eyes.
Hold on, I hate to be the party pooper, Jon… but it looks like someone misspelled your name on your cake. Oh man, that’s gotta be pretty embarrassing. Oh well, at least it’s not as depressing as Kirk Cameron’s birthday party, right? And besides, you’re a huge star and have appeared in… an episode of “Monk” since 2005. Yikes. Well, at least you have a movie coming out this year with… Edward Furlong. I guess we all have to start again somewhere.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate Jon’s milestone by watching him grow up all over again.
