A Tribute to Hollywood Dads on Father's Day 2011
Celebrating fatherhood and paternal bonds, dad's around the world are being toasted for all that they do as family patriarchs during the Father's Day holiday (June 19).
Among the proud papas are the hard-working stars of Hollywood, with big names such as Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise being among the men juggling daddy duties with their demanding filming and promotional schedules.
With the first observance of Father's Day having taken place in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908, the holiday was organized by Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton as a way to "celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who had been lost in the Monongah Mining disaster several months earlier in Monongah, West Virginia, on December 6, 1907."
While other stars such as Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Russell Crowe, Jude Law, Matt Damon and U.S. President Barack Obama are seasoned vets when it comes to kiddies, a new batch of dads emerged in Tinseltown over the past twelve months.
Among the new crop of high-profile papas joining in on the Father's Day fun are Orlando Bloom, Owen Wilson, David Schwimmer and daddy of adorable twins, Nick Cannon.
Needless to say, GossipCenter wishes all of the dads around the globe a big "Happy Father's Day" with nothing but good things to come over the next twelve months and beyond!
