Our favorite Fil-Aussie just turned 24–7 years since he came out of the famed PBB House as the Big Winner, and 4 years after he appeared on the blockbuster Diary Ng Panget, a sleeper hit that would launch him to superstar status. Yet, it feels like forever that James Reid has been sending us crazy-kilig. He has effortlessly done so with that gaze, that swag, that ripped torso, and all things we didn't know could all fit in one sex on a stick. Using his birthday as another excuse to write anything about this hottie (and his abs), we recall the many times we allowed him to hold us under a love spell with his adorable on- and off-screen antics!
1. At the presscon of Diary ng Panget, the time he first showed us one of his best "assets" aside from his talents.
2. That slapstick scene in Diary Ng Panget where Cross–his bad boy of a character–introduced Eya as his girlfriend.
3. When he carried Nadine while she was singing during one of their mall tours for Diary ng Panget.
4. That scene where he gets to caress Nadine's face in Talk Back and You're Dead.
5. Even in his most bangag moments like this trip en route to an On The Wings Of Love taping in San Francisco, California, he looks cute!
6. When he flaunted his "wedding ring" on On The Wings Of Love.
7. When he "passed out" during a dance with Nadine on On The Wings Of Love.
8. The Thank You For The Love 2015 Christmas Station ID, doe.
9. When he glanced on Nadine inside the bus on This Time.
10. When he did a one-on-one interview with Nadine at their Metro Magazine exclusive interview as the November 2016 Issue cover subjects.
11. When he "checked" his biceps while waiting for his scene for Till I Met You.
13 .When he shed a tear at this emotional wedding scene on Till I Met You.
Think we missed another beautiful James Reid moment that should have made it on this list? Let us know in the comments! #TeamReal, unite!
