It’s Jared Leto’s 42nd Birthday, Echelon! Let’s Celebrate By Gawking At 42 Dreamy Photos Of Ya Boi!

HBD, Jared! Do you realize you’re still as hot as you were in 1991? Aging like a fine wine, bro!

There’s been a lot of “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays!” said over these past few days. Looking for something else to say? Today is Dec. 26, so how about, “Happy 42nd birthday, Jared Leto, you sexy beast!” Try it! It has a nice ring.

To celebrate the Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman, actor, and all-around smokeshow’s big day, we curated a BEYOND dreamy 42-photo gallery of Jared spanning all the way back to 1991!

Oh, and in case you had any doubts, the “Do Or Die” singer is aging like a fiiiiiiiiiine-ass Merlot you only uncork on special occasions — like Jared Leto’s 42nd birthday, for example!

So, what does Jared have to celebrate on this very special day? Well, aside from his impeccable bone structure, 2013 was a big year for his band, who snagged the award for Best Alternative at the 2013 MTV EMA, beating out Arctic MonkeysFall Out BoyFranz Ferdinand, and Paramore.

Oh, and speaking of prestigious awards, remember when Thirty Seconds To Mars took home the Best Rock Video Moonman for “Up In The Air” at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards? The SLAYAGE of it all!

Our boy Jared also majorly flexed his acting muscles this year, earning Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations for his standout performance in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Don’t worry, we’re already planning our awards ceremony viewing parties, and your invites are obvs in the mail.

But, if you’re anything like us, Echelon, the only reason you need to gawk at the birthday boy is… well, because staring at Jared Leto is the best. (#NoShame) So, button up your holiday onesie, grab a seat, and enjoy the dreamiest Jared Leto retrospective ever created.

Could Miley’s “invisi-brow” moment have been inspired by Jared’s 1998 “Urban Legends” premiere look?!

Jared attends the “Requiem For A Dream” premiere in 2000. Note the blue nail polish. NOTE IT.

Here’s Jared clearly demolishing life at Lollapalooza in 2006.

We think that robot’s telling Jared that he basically won the 2013 MTV EMA. All of it.
