IT WAS back in 1999 that the world was introduced to one group of randy teenagers who made a pact to get their leg over before graduating high school.
The hilarious band of boys gave us the word milf, provided a novel new function for an apple pie and introduced us to “The Shermanator”.

American Pie’s self-confessed “sophisticated sex robot” liked to think he was a bit of a hit with the ladies, though his tactics left a lot to be desired.
His lack of sexual success was probably down to his obsession with the Terminator films – hence ‘The Shermanator’ – his greasy, spiked hair and tendency to urinate himself when under pressure.
But in the past 23 years – yes you heard that right – since American Pie was released, actor Chris Owen has blossomed from an acne-faced teen to a handsome man.
The 41-year-old actor actually looks a bit like a flame-haired version of Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
After American Pie he appeared in American Pie 2, where Sherman lost his virginity to Nadia, and in American Pie Presents: Band Camp as a guidance counsellor at East Great Falls High School.
He also featured in American Reunion in 2012 where it was revealed Sherman had got married and had a son, Furlong, before getting divorced.
Chris also appeared in several of the National Lampoon flicks including Van Wilder, Gold Diggers, Dorm Daze and Dorm Daze 2 as well as episodic stints in several TV series.
His most recent projects have included the Last Sharknado: It’s About Time in 2018 and A Cape Cod Christmas in 2021.
Chris did get wed in real life but split from wife Michelle Beck, also an actress, in 2012 after five years of marriage.
He married second wife, fellow actress Dayna Cousins in 2018 and has lots of happy pictures of them together on his Instagram.
First Nadia and now this gorgeous gal?! The Shermanator would be proud…
