Happy Birthday Chace Crawford and Nelson Mandela!

by at .

A CW star and former South African President both celebrate birthdays today.

First, Chace Crawford - who just started shooting Gossip Girl Season 6 - turns 27, as fans don't need to worry about gifting him with anyone aside from their best wishes. He's rumored to be dating Erin Andrews, after all.

The actor doesn't need anything else in life.

Nelson Mandela, meanwhile, turns 94. The activist spent 27 years in prison and eventually helped turn his nation into a democracy, defeating the evils of apartheid along the way. That's almost as impressive an achievement as the whole Andrews thing for Crawford.

Other stars celebrating birthdays today include: Kristen Bell (32), Vin Diesel (45), Richard Branson (62).
