Quote of the Day: A word from birthday girl and Hollywood Walk of Fame honoree Kristin Chenoweth...
"I'm trying to learn, as I'm in my 40s, to embrace what I've been able to achieve and be proud of it. And I know there's roles that I will want to play before I die, but I'm still just taking one day at a time."
