(He's actually around 24 here!) 02 of 20 Columbia/Kobal/Shutterstock Firth's first major acting credit was in a film called Another Country (1994), and we've truly never seen suspenders look so good on someone. 03 of 20 Columbia/Kobal/Shutterstock Firth's hair has always been great, but here it's particularly luscious. 04 of 20 Everett Collection That gorgeous hair and brooding expression showed up again in Camille in 1984. 05 of 20 Shutterstock In 1985 he starred as Neil Truelove in Dutch Girls, which is funny because we're convinced he's our true love. 06 of 20 ITV/Shutterstock What can we say? The man looks good in a turtleneck. Here he is in Lost Empire, a miniseries based on the novel of the same name. 07 of 20 Eric CATARINA/Gamma-Rapho via Getty He basically invented slinging a jacket lazily over his shoulder. 08 of 20 Renn/Burrill/Kobal/Shutterstock Talk about an officer and a gentleman, am I right? Here's Firth in 1989, playing the titular role in Valmont. 09 of 20 Ron Galella Collection via Getty Told you he loves a turtleneck. Here's Firth looking dashing at the premiere of Valmont in 1989. 10 of 20 Darryn Lyons/ANL/Shutterstock Firth stole all of our hearts as Mr. Darcy in the classic Pride & Prejudice in 1995. 11 of 20 Source: BBC Never forget the scene where Darcy goes swimming (in an all-white ensemble), which gifted us with this photo. 12 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock There's that brooding, stoic demeanor that we all know and love! 13 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock No, we love you most ardently, Colin Firth. 14 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock We'll root for whatever team Firth tells us to! This pic of his floppy-haired, soccer — erm, we mean football — obsessed character in 1997's Fever Pitch is making us seriously nostalgic. 15 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock Though not exactly the most likeable character in The English Patient, Firth at least managed to look good in a tux. 16 of 20 Ron Galella Collection via Getty When he's not playing the bad guy or looking terribly depressed in the corner, Firth's got a lovely smile. 17 of 20 Alex Bailey/ Miramax Films He returned to the role of Mr. Darcy (albeit, in a modernized version of Pride & Prejudice) when he starred alongside Renée Zellweger in Bridget Jones's Diary. 18 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock There will be no ugly Christmas sweater slander here! 19 of 20 Moviestore/Shutterstock Or Christmas tie slander either, for that matter!
