Happy Birthday to Tom Welling! - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
Happy Birthday to Tom Welling!

Today is Tom Welling's birthday! \o/ Happy Birthday, Tom! I hope you spend your special day in glorious celebration, surrounded by those you love! Thank you for all the joy your acting and directing on Smallville have brought me. S8's Clark is my hero in every way, and I look forward to seeing what you bring to the role in S9!

To celebrate Tom's 32nd birthday, I present what I call the Click for BIGGER picspam! I've gathered my best pics of our boy, all of them big (a few are HUGE) and beautiful, with no watermarks except for the occasional CW/WB logo. I've posted smaller versions here; simply (yes, you guessed it) Click for BIGGER! :) In fact, in some cases, click and then click again for full size. There's nothing new here, Tommy's still a hermit, but hey, don't we all love looking at pics of this gorgeous man, no matter how many times we've seen them before? Come on in and enjoy the pretty!

First, 50 pics of Tom as Clark Kent on Smallville. My, how our sweet farmboy has grown up since S1! And he just keeps getting better, each and every day.

And now, 32 (one for each year, of course) pics of Tom as we love him best: being himself. Hot, smart, funny, charming, adorable, and sexy as hell!

Pics courtesy of Jana, Celebutopia, hires_hunks, and he who shall not to be named, with my thanks! :)

I love that Vogue photo shoot, and I was so happy to get the actual photos from it, rather than scans of the magazine. That last shot in particular is breathtaking!

Yes, best wishes to Tom! He is my Clark Kent, and my Superman!

What an awesome picspam! You've posted so many pics I absolutely ADORE! Our Tom has grown up so much and he has done so with style and getting more beautiful with every passing year. If I ever want to prove to someone why I consider him the moste beautiful man ever, I'll show them this post!

Thanks for this amazing gift to us! I thank Tom for many wonderful things, and meeting you is definitely one of them. *Hugs*

Thanks so much for your kind words, Carol! I think my pic collection is small compared to most fangirls, but it was fun to assemble all these treasures.

The people I've met here on LJ are the best part of being a Tom fan, truly. I treasure our friendship. *hugs*

Happy birthday Tom!

And thanks so much for this lovely picspam. I love the Click for bigger idea - such a treat to find jumbo images of some of my old favorites. Wonderful!

I'm glad you liked it. I remember when I didn't have any pics, how excited I would be to find the pretty in BIG versions. :)

I think he is possibly one of the most beautiful men on earth. :)

AIEEEE! Your icon!! *thud*

He is THE most beautiful, as far as I'm concerned. *is smitten*

You're welcome! I love how today has become such a celebration of Tom!

So many of my favorite pics up there. Gorgeous man! There's just no doubt about that.

Isn't he, though? He still takes my breath away on a daily basis.

BTW, have you seen THIS pic? SO MUCH LOVE. ♥

Thanks so much for the awesome picspam Tariel! Especially the Vogue shoot, I've never seen the actual Vogue pictures in all their glory! I've only seen the scans. *saves*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aren't those beautiful? I love them! Thanks to the incomparable Jana for those.

This made my birthday!

Thx so much for sharing...:-)

Before I forget...Happy Birthday Tom! ;-)

Can someone please tell how his looks not only don't fade, but improve year after year, so that he appears to be ageing BACKWARDS? It's clearly not the make up as they've stopped trying to make look 10 years younger, but still *sighs, over the incredibly sexy pretty man*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know! He just keeps getting more beautiful. I think it helps that they are no longer trying to make him look like a teenager. Without all the makeup to hide his beard shadow, and those horrible haircuts they used to give him, his natural gorgeousness can shine through all the better. Combine that with his DP wardrobe, and I can barely form a coherent thought when I watch this show! :)

I hope Tom has a spectacular birthday. What a wonderful picsapm!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I hope so, too! I'm glad you enjoyed the pretty!

Bravo! Not that's what I call a picspam! So many of my favorites in this list, it's a joy to see them all together.

Thank you for putting this all together.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! It was entirely my pleasure, as I'm sure you can imagine, to look at hundreds of pics of Tom to pick out the ones to include here. :) I'm having so much fun celebrating our mutual love for Tom with everyone today!
starry_dawn From: starry_dawn Date: April 26th, 2009 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Whee, all my favourites are in there! Thank you! And a big happy birthday to our favourite star of all! :D
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you liked it! It's always fun to go through pic after pic of my boy, picking out my favorites. The hardest part was limiting myself to this many. I think my first "short list" had 170 pics! :)

Amazing tribute to our amazing and pretty boy. I hope he's having a wonderful birthday. I actually hope he's in NY today, because the weather here is incredible.

And may he continue to have happiness, success and maintain those out-of-this-world good looks, Hee!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
I hope he's having an amazing day, indulging in whatever he likes best. I desperately need to write my review of Stiletto, but instead I've spent the day enjoying everyone's birthday posts for Tom, and rewatching Exile, Phoenix, Transference, Committed, and Hex! I'm happily steeped in Tom today! LOL!

Wow, that is such a cavalcade of Gorgeousness, including some pics I hadn't seen before - love the B & W shot of Tom nibbling his finger with a light-beam on his face.

He is a stunning creature and I will save this post in my memories, for whenever I need a shot of Beauty to cheer me up!

Happy birthday, Tom!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: April 26th, 2009 11:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
That pic you mention is from Jana, of course. And fairly recently, too. Isn't it amazing?

He is indeed stunning, and I'm thankful for every one of these pretty pics. When the boy wants to, he can work the camera with devastating results.
