Jared Padalecki played main character Rory's first love, Dean Forester, in the popular franchise. Although Dean was not perfect in his relationship with Rory, few people could resist young Jared's smile and adorable haircut.

Here are 5 reasons we love the actor:

1. He was Dean Forester on "Gilmore Girls"



2. He's in the business of helping people

Not only does he help people on his hit show "Supernatural," in real life, he launched a successful campaign "Always Keep Fighting" this year to combat depression and promote the mental health awareness.









3. He has a lovely family

You can easily tell how much he loves his family by looking at his Twitter.





He also loves talking about his family. He tweeted the cute dinosaur costume picture of his son Thomas as promised in the Supernatural convention event in Toronto.

4. He has an incredible friendship with his co-star

Jared's friendship with Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester in "Supernatural," has been going strong for 10 years. Just like the show, the friendship continues.
