Birthday Gallery: Brad Pitt Turns 50

Superstar Brad Pitt has been in our lives for 25 years, from early appearances on Dallas and Growing Pains, to the short-lived series Glory Days. But it was his electric appearance as shady drifter J.D. in Thelma & Louise that first brought him a taste of the stardom he’d experience for the next two decades.

He’s been nominated for three Oscars for his performances in Twelve Monkeys, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and Moneyball (which also garnered him a producing nomination), and had memorable turns in such films as Fight Club and Seven.

On the personal side, he’s a vocal advocate for marriage-equality and fought hard against Prop 8, and he and wife Angelina Jolie (with whom he’s shared many a tabloid headline) are two of our greatest allies.

Today, the perennial sexiest man alive reaches a milestone, celebrating his 50th birthday. Let’s take a pictorial

Because... wow. Pitt had a few early roles on the small screen – most notably in 21 Jump Street, Dallas and short-lived Fox high school drama Glory Days – but we feel 'Once You Pop', directed by Lawrence Bridges, really sums up the first era of his career. That era being "the eighties".

2. Thelma & Louise (1991)

This year's The Counsellor reunited Pitt with Ridley Scott, the director who gave him his first break on the big screen in 1991's iconic womance. After Billy Baldwin dropped

On Brad Pitt's Birthday: Watch His Super Cute First Big Break!

On Brad Pitt's Birthday: Watch His Super Cute First Big Break!
Brad Pitt turns 48 years old on Sunday, which to us underscores two things: One, the guy looks good for his age; and two, he's been at this Hollywood superstar thing for a long time.

The Oklahoma native's career is as strong as ever. He earned his fourth Golden Globe nomination on Thursday for his work in "Moneyball," an honor that is a major addition to the critics and festival awards he's been receiving for both that role and his turn in "The Tree of Life." But because birthdays are a day to reflect, we'd rather concentrate on the major roles that brought him to this illustrious point.
