An in-depth study was done by the folks over at Stacker, asking this simple, yet fascinating question. Let's take a look at some of the results.

I was born in the year 1983. Ronald Reagan was president, Return of the Jedi was at the top of the box office for the year, the Washington Redskins won the Super Bowl, and the biggest album of the year (for the second year running) was Michael Jackson's Thriller. But who were the most famous people born in that eventful year? One is a musician and the other is a superhero.

Stacker ranks Carrie Underwood and Chris Hemsworth as the two most famous people born in 1983. That's hard to argue as one is quite possibly the most famous "American Idol" in history (sorry Kelly Clarkson), and the other is one of the original Avengers.

What about if you were born in 1966? The answer? Adam Sandler and Halle Berry.

Want to go back even further? Stacker ranks Frank Sinatra as the most famous people born in 1960 as Bono and Julianne Moore. Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher in 1956, Bruce Willis and Whoopi Goldberg in 1955, and Oprah and Denzel Washington took the top spots in 1954.

It's a list that will surely take you down memory lane and is well worth a look. Who was the most famous person the year you were born? Check out the full list here and find out for yourself!
