Happy Birthday, Peter Facinelli!

The actor, who’s celebrating his 40th birthday today, seems to be getting better with age.

Since he stole our hearts as Mike Dexter in "Can’t Hardly Wait," Peter has become one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men. He’s a fan favorite in the "Twilight" series, playing Dr. Carlisle Cullen, a small town doctor who serves as the patriarch of a clan of vampires.

But that's just a small piece of his impressive resume! He’s also had memorable roles on "Six Feet Under," "Damages" and Showtime's Emmy-winning dark comedy, "Nurse Jackie."

In 2010, Facinelli started his own production company, Facinelli Films. The company's first film, "Loosies," was released in 2012.

The actor's career continues to flourish -- he's starring in upcoming films "Freezer" and "Walter."

Facinelli married actress Jennie Garth back in 2001. However, after nearly 11 years of marriage, the couple filed for divorce in 2012. They share joint custody of their three daughters, Luca, Lola and Fiona. He is now dating actress Jaimie Alexander.
