Today is Sarah Michelle Gellar’s 38th birthday, and what better to way to celebrate than our fave SMG moments. We were gonna wait until it was her big 4-0, but thought we’d better lay this shit down while the bitch is still (vaguely) relevant. No, but seriously though, SMG was life growing up.

From Buffy The 25-Year-Old Cheerleader, to vindictive Kathryn in Cruel Intentions. She had a couple liasions with the slasher genre before murdering her own career with dodgy titles such as Simply Irresistable and Harvard Man. Since then she’s had more straight-to-DVD titles than she can count (and we’ve heard she can count all the way up to 10).

Regardless, she proved she’s still got some star quality with the cancelled Ringer. Our advice: Leave comedies to those who are funny. Play the bitch, as it’s evidentially not that much of a stretch for you. But whatever happens, we’ll always rate you as our childhood obsession.

Here’s what we’ve learnt from the legendary vampire layer:
