James Earl Jones shares how he’s celebrating his 90th birthday Sunday

James Earl Jones has a sweet idea for how to spend his 90th birthday.

The iconic actor, who turned 90 on Sunday, told USA Today via email that he’ll “make an exception and enjoy a slice of strawberry shortcake, my favorite!”

Jones’ prolific acting career spans more than seven decades, with his roles including voicing Darth Vader in “Star Wars” and Mufasa in “The Lion King.”

Other standout movies for Jones include “Coming to America“ and “The Hunt for Red October.” On the TV side, he won two Emmys in 1991 for his performances on “Gabriel’s Fire” and “Heat Wave.”

He’s also twice won the Tony for lead actor in a play, first in 1969 for “The Great White Hope,” and then in 1987 for “Fences.”

“Looking back at my life and extensive career, I am so proud of my work and accomplishments,” Jones continued in his email to USA Today.

“I love growing older and wiser with time.”

Jones earned an honorary Oscar in 2011 to commemorate his illustrious career.

He then received a lifetime achievement award at the Tony’s in 2017.

Jones told USA Today he’s “feeling fantastic and grateful at 90 years old.”

He will next appear in “Coming 2 America,” the sequel to the classic 1988 comedy starring Eddie Murphy. Jones will reprise his role as King Jaffe Joffer in the new movie, which hits Amazon Prime Video on March 5.
