Remember the good old days when Jensen was just starting this show at 27?  Well, today he turns 35!

After eight wonderful years on "Supernatural" (and more coming), the question is, exactly how well do we know Jensen?  Below is just a few facts about the birthday boy that you may or may not know. 

He used to set the latest trends in hair.  Who else would have thought of frosted tips? 

His rebel years.

(Yes, we know this is from Ten Inch Hero)

He's always had a keen eye for jewelry.

Thanks to his fashion sense, The Commodores actually wrote a song about him.

"Ow, he's got brick...pants
He's mighty mighty, letting all hang out
Ow, he's got brick...pants..."

He's an animal lover.

He loves to make people laugh (okay, maybe just Jared).

He loves taking roles that make him stretch his acting chops.  For example, he got to play Clark Kent's older and wiser football coach in season four of "Smallville," even though Tom Welling is actually older than him.  BTW, that sound you heard was screens similtaneously exploding from all the pretty. 

Like all of us, Jensen has a few hidden scandals in his past.  He once snapped and murdered an innocent creature onstage in front of stunned (okay, more like howling with laughter) witnesses.  It was a case of "fowl play" (dodges flying tomatoes). We don't talk of it too much (okay, maybe all the time).

He golfs, but his friends tell him he's good because none of them have the heart to admit they really don't know how to golf.  They kind of think it's a lame sport.  (Okay, that's really only Jared.)  Like any good actor, Jensen knows dressing for the part is everything.

He has this amazing ability to block all train of thought.  Alice was sitting at this table with him and she couldn't remember a damned thing he said (sweetondean has had similar experiences).  He's very good.   

His favorite pasttime is going to cons and messing with Jared.

Jensen is a messy eater.

So is Jared come of think of it.

He has a beautiful smile.  Fine, now we're stating the obvious.  Do we ever tire of it though? 

Did you know he has a beautiful frown too?

He laughs like this.

He likes hats.

He sings and plays the guitar.


He directs as well as acts.


He sometimes does stuff like this.

He looks good wet.

And in the snow.

His favorite color is purple (Oh wait, that's my favorite color).


Now he's adding another skill to his list, Father!  Luckily, Supernatural has given him on the job training for the role.

Oh that's right, he's having a girl.

As you can see, Jensen Ackles is truly an enigma to us all.  One extremely pretty enigma, but to harp on that any further would be objectifying (and I think we've done enough of that!). 

Happy 35th Birthday Jensen!  Have a great one.

Lovely pics and amusing comments make for a very nice Jensen appreciation picspam. My only addition would be loving and loyal husband! I think Jensen would put that at the top of his list of accomplishments and pleasures.

The world certainly got a lot brighter and happier when Jensen made his presence known!

Happy Birthday to a great guy!

I love this way too much! Totally brightened my day!

My sister and I have both experienced Jensen blocking all train of thought. We call it "getting Ackles'd". There is just too much pretty to take in, there's no room for anything else.

Very nice!
I'd wish him a happy birthday here, but I KNOW that sweetondean will give him a massive birthday hug from all of us next weekend.
Right sweetondean? (And make sure he knows it's from all of us, and not just you. :lol: ) Of course, I'm sure you'll get your share, too. ;-) 8)
# Bevie 2013-03-01 14:06
Oh wow! He takes my breath away! This was so awesome and beautiful! Thank you!

Hard to believe he's 35. Seems like yesterday I first laid eyes on him when he debuted on "Days". Back then, I thought to myself, "I have never seen a more gorgeous boy before!", then there were "Smallville" and "Dark Angel" and I fell in love with "Dean Winchester" and still am to this day!

Happy birthday Jensen! and many many more happy ones with your loved ones beside you. You will never know how much you brighten my life! :roll: :P :zzz :-) :-) ;-)
# Sylvie 2013-03-01 14:08

OMG! Those pictures! Happy Birthday, Jensen! We love you - not just 'cause you are really beautiful...but you are! Best wishes in everything you do, especially with your little girl.
# alysha 2013-03-01 20:41
That last picture with the gun and the comment! LOL!

He's Pisces like me! And he's now the age I was when the show began! How time flies!

thanks for the fun!

I'm a girl and I can fire a rifle and a pistol, thanks to my Dad. Am a good shot, too! Let's not be too sexist here! The pistol, BTW, is my mother's service revolver when she was a Navy officer.
# E 2013-03-02 21:11
I think you are confused about which caption goes with which picture: the "that's right he's having a girl" caption goes with the picture of Dean holding the baby because in the episode, the baby shapeshifter was a boy. I really don't think it was a comment about how girls shouldn't or can't handle guns......Ellen , Jo, Jody Mills, Bella, Gwen, kickass cop lady from The Benders, Linda Blair's character from the Usual Suspects...etc I think this show has showcased plenty of female characters who can hold their own with the a gun AND deal with Sam and Dean too! This is really THE LAST place that you'd ever find sexism IMO.
# Bamboo24 2013-03-02 21:23
Ever heard of the phrase "daddy with a shotgun"? The caption DOES go with the shotgun picture, and alludes to the fact that almost every dad has a fierce desire to protect his baby girl from boys, and make sure they know that failing to treat his daughter like a princess will have serious consequences. :)
# aelaine 2013-03-02 21:11
Thanks, great pics! Hope he has a great bday at home with Danneel and baby girl to be

Oh, you forgot to mention amazing green eyes, freckles, bow legs and beautiful hands...but we would end up breaking the internet is we listed all his 'perfections'. xx :lol:
# Trucklady 2013-03-03 09:12
Hey girls, another great job! This is just an awesome tribute to the hunkiest, sweetest, irresistable, loving, genuin, humble, adorable, well you get the idea, man. I only hope that he gets to see the hard work you girls put into this sight. I'm so way above excited to be attending my first con next week and finally getting to meet this man in person. I know I will be a blubbering idiot around him.
# Leah 2013-03-03 11:23
Very nice ladies. I love his various laughs. My favorite is the full-on head thrown back and/or doubled over laugh that he does when something really strikes him funny. Like when he was reading Misha's "acting on camera" resume.

Happy (belated?) Birthday Jensen!! Continued happiness and to you, Daneel and little future Acklet(s).

Knowing the strong, brave women who have appeared on SPN, I was taken aback by your critical comment. I read that others felt the same way. The writers might want to line their captions up better -- they are not intuitive. Perhaps numbering the photo and its accompanying caption would help to pair them properly? Just a suggestion. Foot off my throat, please.

LOL, very cute. :lol:
# Pam 2013-03-05 19:39
I so love this man. I mean it in the most respectful of ways. He is attractive to people in general because he comes across as a genuinely good person. He is not spoiled by his fame or popularity. I look for signs of his being any other way but have yet to see him in nothing but a light of positivity and sincerity. Thanks for so much for putting this birthday tribute together. It truly was a gift to all of us and being Jensen, I know he doesn't mind sharing.
