Julia Stiles is celebrating her 30th birthday today (28th March 2011).Julia Stiles, the American actress and star of 'Mona Lisa Smile', turns 30-years-old today, reports the Los Angeles Times.The actress first rose to prominence after starring alongside the late Heath Ledger in '10 Things I Hate About You' and her film career has since included a number of commercial and critical successes, most notably 'Mona Lisa Smile' and 'Save the Last Dance'. In recent years, she has guest starred as 'Lumen Pierce' in the fifth season of 'Dexter', a role that earned her a Golden Globe award nomination. Stiles was scheduled to appear alongside the comedian Dane Cook in the Broadway play 'Fat Pig', but the show's producers have decided to postpone the spring opening. A spokesman for the production cited the "last minute fallout of a key investment" as the reason for the delay, adding, "This did not leave the producers enough time to reacquire the necessary capital and begin rehearsals on schedule to open prior to the Tony Awards cutoff date".
Julia Stiles recently completed work on a movie adaptation of Sylvia Plath's classic novel 'The Bell Jar'. The actress will star as 'Esther Greenwood', the book editor who is slowly taken over by mental illness.
