Many people say 'life begins at forty', but it's fair to say that Jensen began his current life as a ridiculously talented actor, 50% of J2, convention rock god and ovary-murderer many years before that.
Therefore, to celebrate this auspicious occasion, I'm delighted to present a fantastic fortieth birthday picspam for our fabulous fan favourite, Jensen.
Forty reasons why we wish Jensen a Happy Fortieth Birthday!
Just in case you were in any doubt ...
By everyone. There are as yet undiscovered tribes in the heart of the Peruvian rainforest that fancy Jensen.
There are a number of reasons for this:
'Nuff said ...
Complexion - apart from those eye-crinkles, and they're worth a picspam all of their own.
And if you survive those ...
And wouldn't we all like to have a squeeze?
This is a fairly standard fangirls'-eye-view of Jensen.
But, aside from all the physical attributes, there are so many other reasons why Jensen is such a
He was such a sweet young thing when he first appeared ...
But since then, Jensen has matured like a fine wine.
Not only is he full-bodied and strong with a sophisticated finish, but he also makes you drool uncontrollably, lose the power of coherent speech and want to take your clothes off.
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?
Is this a trick question, or what????
Jensen knows how to present himself in public with dignity and sophistication.
Yes, okay. I'm staring ...
He can strike a pose with the best of them ...
Chain mail has never looked so good.
Nor have Auntie Mabel's curtains.
Most mere mortals don't stand a chance; but hey, what a way to go!
Jensen really doesn't need to ...
Although, sometimes he can't help himself.
Not that we're complaining, mind ...
He can raise temperatures without even trying.
Lord help us if he did try - every ovary on earth would go supernova ...
But he wouldn't want to inflict that sort of damage on his adoring fans ...
Or maybe he would ...
Whatever. We're happy to take the risk, because ... that's our Jensen. RAWWWR.
Jensen is a great mover.
He doesn't hang around either.
Those J2 fanfics aren't exaggerating ...
We love that Jensen looks after himself and keeps himself clean.
Perhaps they need warming up?
Can I help??
To add to his endless appeal, Jensen is a successful businessman.
And a devoted father.
He is loved and respected by his friends ...
And he in turn is a great friend. The sort of true friend who would tell the entire world world that their best friend is going grey ...
Jensen is as brave and stoic as his alter-ego, Dean Winchester.
And doesn't take himself too seriously ...
At all ...
So much quality in one place could be dangerous ...
... it needs to be kept in a cage.
But I think we're safe for now ...
Don't worry Jensen, forty isn't so bad when you get used to it!
HAPPY FUDGING FORTIETH BIRTHDAY!
