Birthday girl Keri Russell may have made a name for herself on the small screen with Felicity and The Mickey Mouse Club, but she’s happy she’s on the big screen now that she’s a mom. Why? She works for a shorter period of time.

“It’s like going to summer camp in this intensive way,” she says. “When I did the Western Into The West, I learned to ride horses, mount and grip the hair. Then it was all cello. You get to learn something and then walk away from it and learn something else. For Mission Impossible, it was machine-gun assembly blindfolded and jumping off buildings with Tom Cruise.”


Keri celebrates her 32nd birthday today. She is blowing out the candles with hubby Shane Deary and son River, eight months.
