Remember Jonathan Lipnicki

You know, that adorable little kid with the quirky glasses who stole our hearts opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire. Well, the former child star turns a whopping 25 today and, while we've honestly never felt older, this is also a perfectly reasonable time for us to note just how darn cute he still is!

Going on two decades since the towheaded charmer taught us a thing or two about human heads and bunny rabbits when he was only 5 years old, Lipnicki continues to act. 

After starring in family friendly favorites Stuart Little and Like Mike in the early 2000s, the birthday boy made his return to the silver screen in 2012 with For the Love of Money, and just wrapped filming on the high school comedy Loserville, which also stars Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Orange is the New Black's Matt McGorry and Scandal's Darby Stanchfield

And Lipnicki recently told the Huffington Post he refuses to piggyback on his early success.

"I think the problem with a lot of child stars and why they don't make the transition, they think, 'Well, the world owes me something.' But the world doesn't, the world doesn't owe you anything. You need to continue to improve your skills as you grow up," he explained. 

Happiest of birthdays, Jonathan! We can't wait to see more of you on the big screen.
