Friday The 13th: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Among Stars Born on Superstitious Day (PHOTOS)
Marked by superstition, Friday the 13th is said to be the unluckiest day of the year, but not for these successful celebrities.
From Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to Private Practice star Kate Walsh, a number of stars have managed to find good luck in life, despite being born on the spooky day.
Celebuzz tracked down 10 stars who have been born on Friday the 13th, and they all seem to be doing well for themselves.
The number 13 has been synonymous with bad luck for generations. Many homes and hospitals lack a 13th floor, cities skip 13th street, and house numbers skip from 12 to 14.
But country cutie Taylor Swift couldn’t disagree more. The teen singing sensation reportedly draws a 13 on her hand before every show for good luck.
“I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro," Swift told MTV in 2009. "Basically whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it's a good thing."What are your thoughts on Friday the 13th? Does the day really bring bad luck?
