Happy Birthday, Kristin Chenoweth!

Happy Birthday, Kristin Chenoweth!

Kristin Chenoweth celebrates the big 4-0 at a big birthday bash thrown by her Untitled Entertainment manager pal Danielle Thomas on Thursday at the Los Angeles home of Untitled boss Stephanie Simon.

As you can see from the pictures, the cakes were in the shapes of giant olives. (Olive Snook is Kristin‘s character’s name on her hit ABC show, Pushing Daises. The show received 12 Emmy nominations including one for Kristin for Best Supporting Actress.) There was actually only supposed to be one olive cake, but when Danielle went to pick it up, the bakery happened to make two. (This provided a few laughs at the party, as they looked like a pair of dot dot dot.)

The birthday toast was given by writer/producer Aaron Sorkin. Belvedere made special drinks for the occasion as a little tribute to Kristin‘s work in the Broadway production Wicked. (she was also nominated for a Tony Award as Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her performance as Galinda, the good witch.)

  • S

    It is her 40th, but why does the cake say 29th??

  • tr

    her character in wicked was galinda in the beginning of the play and glinda in the end. its just a matter of preference as to which name you choose, but people mainly use Glinda. therefore: it doesnt matter which one they put.

  • anna

    Happy Birthday, Kristin!
    She is 40, but she looks great )though these are not the best pictures to show it). The cake is freaky… but cute idea. Can’t wait for Pushing Daisies to come back!

  • cheninator

    @ S the cake says 29, as a joke. most people do that kinda joke they turn 40 but have a cake that says that is less that your actual age, its a women thing :-P.

    she looks adorable, i adore her so much in wicked, and anything she does especially pushing daisies.

  • vicki loo

    she’s amazing on stage. thanks for covering this, J! I agree – at first I thought the cakes were also dot dot dot…but then you said olive, and I thought to myself, “oh, OF COURSE!”


    You mean a pair of BREASTS?
