Happy Birthday, Brad Pitt!
Like most of us, actor Brad Pitt didn’t have the best year. We don’t need to delve into the details, (his split from Angelina Jolie clearly signaled the imminent end of life as we know it) but suffice it to say, Pitt’s 2016 was as dismal as everyone else’s (barring Beyoncé, of course).
That being said, we’re wishing Pitt nothing but happiness ahead in his 53rd year (5-3, no joke). Considering that he has two big-budget films in the works (World War Z 2 and War Machine—we’re sensing a theme…), success appears to be on the horizon.
The actor’s decade-spanning career has taken him everywhere a dynamic actor could ever hope to go (from within the ring in Fight Club to the frontlines of World War II in Allied)—and, thankfully for his loyal fans, Pitt has made sure to embrace most roles fully, and often without a shirt. **WINK, WINK**
In honor of the actor’s birthday, here’s a much-needed roundup of his steamiest (and shirtless-est!) onscreen moments.

The film didn't fare incredibly well with critics, but audiences found a lot to love...

In addition to a shirtless Brad Pitt, the crime drama also features the early '90s pairing of Pitt and Juliette Lewis in all their vintage glory.

Come for shirtless Brad, leave with the memory of his hairstyle.

The shirtless onscreen moment that started it all.
