Christina Aguilera, Brad Pitt & Katie Holmes Are Actually The Same Person

We're going to need a bigger birthday cake. We're not quite sure just what's in the water in mid-March, but today happens to be the 51st, 36th, and 34th birthdays of Brad Pitt, Katie Holmes, and Christina Aguilera, respectively. Everybody make a wish.
At first glance, these birthday triplets don't seem to have much in common beyond a birthday and a charismatic Sagittarian personality. One's a singer, two are actors. Two were child stars, one started out a bit later. Two of them spent a lot of time with Tom Cruise, and one sang a song for his second ex-wife's film.
Then again, perhaps there's more to it. Dig a little deeper and commonalities pop up. Come to think of it, have you seen any of these people in the same room together? Is it possible that they're the same person?
No, of course not. Let's at least investigate anyway.

They Sing

Obviously Christina Aguilera's got some pipes. Katie, meanwhile, has played songbird in Dawson's Creek, and Brad showed off his vocal skills in Johnny Suede.

They Dance

Don't tell us you forgot about Holmes' extended Judy Garland tribute on So You Think You Can Dance. Xtina is more of a burlesque boogie-shaker, while Brad just showed off his breakdancing skills on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

They've All Been Divorced

It happens. Holmes and Tom Cruise are no more, Aguilera split with Jordan Bratman and is now engaged to Matt Rutler, and Pitt and Jennifer Aniston divorced nearly 10 years ago.

They Had Kids Before Marriage

Not that there's anything wrong it. Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Knox, Vivienne, Suri, and (phew!) Christina's new baby girl, Summer Rain Rutler, were all born before their parents got married. Xtina's son Max, from her marriage to Jordan Bratman, is the sole exception.

They Have Weird Nicknames

Brangelina, Xtina, and TomKat (never forget)? Hmm.

They've All Done Reality TV

Christina will soon be back on NBC's The Voice. Katie's done stints on Project Runway and So You Think You Can Dance. Even Brad did two episodes of Jackass in 2002.

They Each Have Exes With A "J" Name

Remember Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson and Josh Hartnett? Christina Aguilera and Jorge Santos and Jordan Bratman? Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis and Jennifer Aniston?

They're Tight With Disney Stars

Katie Holmes and Suri seem to always be donning mouse ears at Disneyland. Brad's sleeping with Maleficent herself. But, Aguilera wins for actually starring on The Mickey Mouse Club back in the day.

They Dig Boxing Rings

Exhibit A: Xtina's racy "Dirrty" video. Exhibit B: Brad's turns in Fight Club and Snatch. Exhibit C: Katie's recent admission that she uses boxing to stay fit.

They Get Animated

Along with starring in Cool World, Brad did voice work for Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, King of the Hill, and MegaMind. Christina sang a cover of "Car Wash" for Car Wash (starring Angelina Jolie), and Katie has just signed on to lend her voice for Underdogs.
