Beloved international celebrity Monica Lewinsky turns 34 today. The former White House intern-turned-handbag designer stole America’s heart in 1998, when her love affair with President Clinton charmed the nation and taught us all that even in the cold domain of politics, there’s still room for good old-fashioned love.
The fresh-faced intern caught the President’s eye during his first term, and their whirlwind romance culminated, as all great love affairs do, in his impeachment.
Last year, Monica received her master’s in Social Psychology from the London School of Economics, just like Mick Jagger.
Fun facts: Monica shares a birthday with author Raymond Chandler, actor Daniel Radcliffe, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and racist former radio personality Don Imus.
