13 Sexy Paul Wesley Photos That Will Make Your Life More Meaningful

It's Paul Wesley's birthday, so we're celebrating with hot pics, natch.

Today is a very special day for humans, vampires and hybrids alike. On this day, 33 years ago, the heavens opened up and gifted us with Paul Wesley.

As Stefan Salvatore on "The Vampire Diaries," Wesley has played pretty much every TV archetype in the book over the past six seasons: the hero (with shiny hero hair!), the villain, the antihero, the compassionate best friend, the loving boyfriend and even the doppelgänger. But IRL, Wesley is funny, sarcastic and hot AF.
