Happy birthday to Jude Law! The handsome British actor first stole our hearts in 1999 when he wowed audiences in the psychological thriller The Talented Mr. Ripley, which earned him an Oscar nod and a BAFTA win for Best Supporting Actor.

The now-43-year-old has a long list of films under his belt. Since getting his big break in 1999, Law has starred in A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Alfie, The Holiday, Hugo, Anna Karenina, Side Effects, and The Grand Budapest Hotel—just to name a few.
