Date of Birth: August 18th 1969
Edward Norton worked with his grandfather in Osaka, Japan after high school. Upon his return to New York, it took less than two years of waiting on tables before he caught the eye of playwright Edward Albee and the Signature Theater Company. The rest, as they say, is history. He continues to play original and unique roles on the big screen in films such as "Primal Fear" (1996) and "American History X" (1998).
Norton is generally known for his reluctance to embrace his celebrity status, and has said, "If I ever have to stop taking the subway, I'm gonna have a heart attack." Norton has stated in interviews that he is a fan of the Baltimore Orioles. He was involved in many of Cal Ripken Jr.'s retirement activities in 2001 when Norton was asked to be a part of Ripken's biography for MLB. He attended Ripken's ceremony at the Hall of Fame in July 2007.
Norton dated Mexican actress Salma Hayek between 1999 and 2003. He was also once engaged to Courtney Love. He is currently dating film producer Shauna Weinberg Robertson.
