There’s something particularly boggling about Nick Jonas’ biggest hit: Why would he be “Jealous” of anyone? It’s like, no, Nick Jonas — you’re too sexy beautiful. Stop it. But perhaps that endearing humble attitude is partly why we love him so much. To celebrate his 25th birthday on Saturday, we found 25 visual reasons to love the former JoBro-turned-sex-symbol, each involving picture-perfect muscles and a killer smirk or smile. Celebrate Nick Jonas the way he should be celebrated — and then revisit his EW cover story. (You’re welcome.)
