Can you believe Calista Flockhart turns 50 years old today? The stunning actress first made her way into our hearts when she starred at the title character in the hit TV show Ally McBeal, but some may be surprised to find out she actually got her start on Broadway. Since Ally, Flockhart has made her way back to the stage, onto the silver screen and, most recently, back to the small screen again in Brothers and Sisters. The actress, who married actor Harrison Ford in 2010 after dating for eight years, even appeared on two InStyle covers. "I feel like I was born an actress, if that makes any sense," Flockhart told InStyle in our June 2000 issue. "I always had an affinity for it." Happy birthday, Calista!
