Sarah Michelle Gellar celebrates turning 38 today! Let’s honor the greatest vampire slayer EVER by taking a look back at her past year.
Happy Birthday, Buffy! Sarah Michelle Gellar turns 38 on Apr.14! While she and hubby Freddie Prinze Jr. celebrate, lets hope they save us a slice of cake as we here at HollywoodLife.com want to join in on the party! Help us make Sarah’s day special by looking back at her last twelve months!
Sarah Michelle Gellar Birthday — ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Actress Turns 38
Sarah had quite the year with some ups and downs. Despite winning her a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New Television Series for her show The Crazy Ones, it was sadly cancelled after one season. When her Crazy Ones co-star, Robin Williams, tragically took his life in August 2014, Sarah said “he was the father I had always dreamed of having.”
She also kept herself busy with her voice work, appearing frequently on Seth Green’s animated Adult Swim show, Robot Chicken.
Speaking of which, Sarah made sure that Buffy fans got their fix in 2014 by posting many mini-reunions on Twitter. Not only did she appear with Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) but she also tweeted she was hanging out with Seth and Michelle Tractenberg. Plus, when Alyson Hannigan turned 40 last year, Buffy was there to wish Willow a Happy Birthday.
This may be the closest that Slayer fans get to a full blown Buffyverse reunion. Sarah has said she’s retired from slaying, even joking that she’s too old for it now!
While she won’t be killing vampires, Sarah isn’t straying far from her sci-fi roots as she starred in Veronica Decides To Die. The movie, released via VOD in January 2015, saw Sarah playing a young woman who attempted suicide, only to wake up in a mysterious mental institution.
Though Sarah got in trouble with dissing the 2014 Kim Kardashian/Kayne West Vogue cover, she put her insult-throwing skills to good use in a hilarious Princess Rap Battle video that took over the internet! Sarah, playing Cinderella, went hard against Belle, played by Whitney Avalon, in a classic clash of Beauty vs. Brains.
