Brad Pitt is celebrating a big birthday today - but the realization of his real age has left many social media users in awe.

Yes, today (December 18) marks the birthday of one of Hollywood's most celebrated, beloved, successful, and handsome actors: Brad Pitt.

With a career spanning several decades, Pitt has captivated audiences with his charismatic presence and exceptional acting skills. Roles in movies like Se7en (1995), Fight Club (1999), and Inglourious Basterds (2009) have cemented Pitt as one of the best to ever step in front of a camera - but he's also become known as one of the best looking.

For example, here is a photo of Pitt from last month:

Now, how would you feel if I told you that Pitt is SIXTY YEARS OLD today?!

Yes, it appears as if the actor has truly become one of his biggest roles, as he has been dubbed a real-life Benjamin Button.

And people on X (formerly known as Twitter) couldn't quite believe the news that Pitt was turning 60 today, as it not only made many people feel old themselves... but also very ordinary.

One person asked: "Brad Pitt turns 60 today. Is he living the plot of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in life?"

Another quipped: "#BradPitt being 60 today is giving me a mid-life crisis", with a third X user pointing out: "Brad Pitt is 60 today. Dude never ages."

And one social media user asked the exact question I asked myself this morning: "How the f**k is Brad Pitt 60 years old?"

So, how does Brad Pitt stay looking so young? Well, Men's Health reports that the actor has apparently been vegan for over 10 years, and has also abstained from alcohol for six years - opting for non-alcoholic drinks such as cranberry juice and fizzy water.
