Believe it or not, Brad Pitt, the man of almost everyone’s dreams, turns 50 today. Brad isn’t perfect — as anyone on Team Aniston will be quick to remind you — but he comes pretty close. Whether you fell in love with him in Thelma & Louise or were knocked to the floor by his abs in Fight Club, he’s earned his place as one of the universal go-to hunks of the last few decades. There are many reasons to adore the actor, father, and dedicated husband, but in honor of his 50th birthday, we’ve rounded up 50 of them. From his yeti beard to his dance moves, join us as we wax poetic about Brad Pitt and stare at his perfectly chiseled jaw and even more perfectly perfect abs.
