Did you know that 66 years ago today, Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) was born? That’s right, today is a really special day – Ron’s birthday! Born in Washington Heights, NY (New York City), to Dorothy and Bertram (Bert) Perlman, Ron was what he’s described as “terribly overweight as a young kid, and [had what] was sort of a low self image.” That has certainly changed over the years!
His family, being Jewish, threw him a Bar Mitzvah celebration for his 13th birthday, as his father came from Hungary and his mother came from Poland. To this day, Ron has incredibly strong cultural roots, and is loyal to his hometown in New York City. Despite his struggles when he was younger, he has learned self-acceptance and what his role as an actor in Hollywood really means.
Check out this special birthday video tribute to Ron below, and feel free to post your birthday wishes to him in the comments here! Happy, happy birthday to our Clay Morrow! Champagne wishes and caviar dreams, Ron! We hope you have the most wonderful of birthdays today!
