IMDb has had a lot of problems with incorrect birthdates; therefore, they will not add or update them without strong evidence, preferably government id.

If you can supply such evidence, you can submit the request to add the birthdate; without such evidence, nobody can.

But is there a way to add birthdates without government id, like a website where all of the id is for that actor?
If not, then can someone upload the birthdate then?

It depends on how authoritative the Data Managers feel the site is. They may or may not accept it. The only way to know for sure is to submit the request and see.

You can do this yourself.

Just start at the actor's name page, click the yellow Edit Page button near the bottom of that page.

Jake: I would generally advise against submitting birthdates for anyone, unless the person is already deceased, or unless the person is in a profession like sports or politics where their birthdate is already publicly available.

Many people in the entertainment industry prefer not to have their birthdates publicized, and I have seen numerous requests from people asking to have their birthdates removed from IMDb. Those requests are always denied. Google "Junie Hoang" to read about a case where an actress sued IMDb for posting her birthdate.
