Brad Pitt turned 50 on Wednesday, Dec. 18, and was given a memorable birthday present -- he graces the cover of AARP the Magazine.
"Good morning, and welcome to a world where Brad Pitt is 50," AARP, formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons, said on Facebook. "He's a four-time Oscar nominee and two-time [recipient of People's] Sexiest Man Alive [title].. and he's just getting started. Join us in wishing William Bradley Pitt a very happy 50th birthday with this special birthday cover of AARP The Magazine."
The actor rose to fame as a sex symbol in the 1990s with roles in movies such as "Thelma & Louise," "Interview With The Vampire" and "Legends of the Fall."
Pitt earned three individual Oscar nominations for his parts in the movies "Twelve Monkeys" (he lost to Kevin Spacey of "The Usual Suspects"), "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (he lost to Sean Penn of "Milk") and "Moneyball" (he lost to Jean Dujardin of "The Artist"). He also shared an Oscar nomination for Best Picture" for the latter film (the movie lost to "The Artist.")
Pitt continues to act -- he can be seen in the new movie "12 Years A Slave" -- and spend time with his family - partner Angelina Jolie, 38, and their six children.
