In honor of Brad Pitt turning the big 6-0 (we can’t believe he’s 60 either), singer Shania Twain wished the famous Hollywood actor a happy birthday in the best way possible on social media: by quoting a line from her song “That Don’t Impress Me Much.”

On December 18, People dedicated a special birthday post to Pitt on its official IG page, which featured still images taken from his most iconic movies. And in the comments section, the Canadian-born Twain, 58, celebrated the Mr. and Mrs. Smith star by commenting, “That don’t impress me much, but HBD [kissy face emoji].” 

As we all know, Twain references the Oscar-winning actor in her 1997 hit single. In the country song, she says/sings, “Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt. That don’t impress me much. So you got the looks, but have you got the touch? Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright. But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night.”

As People points out, Twain included Pitt in the song because of the nude pictures that leaked amid his split with ex-girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow. In a 2017 interview with Billboard, the songwriter opened up about her writing process. 

“I remember I had a girlfriend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies,” Twain explained. “I was writing this album and there was a scandal of [Pitt] and Gwyneth where there were naked photos of him.”

So in turn, the line was supposed to make light of the situation. “And this was like, all the rage,” she added. “I just thought, ‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about.’ I’m like, well that don’t impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss?”

Siri, play “That Don’t Impress Me” one more time.
