Chris Noth is celebrating a very big birthday! The actor, who sent many hearts a-flutter with his portrayal of Mr. Big alongside Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, rings in his 60th year.

Although most fans recognize Noth from the groundbreaking TV series and subsequent films, the silver fox has since moved on to more dramatic parts—most notably in the award-winning show The Good Wife, opposite Julianna Margulies. Up next for the star: a role in the comedy film After the Ball, which is set to hit theaters later this year.
