Chris Hemsworth Is Officially The Sexiest Man Alive

The die hard Chris Hemsworth fan girls amongst you will be pleased to know that the Thor actor is fronting People magazine's 35th 'Sexiest Man Alive' cover.


While many were hedging their bets on it being How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris, or Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt - it's Hemsworth who scored the sexy title.

We're guessing it's the whole rugged, blonde hair, blue eyes thing. And the fact that he was in Home and Away.

The news came via Jimmy Kimmel Live when host Kimmel interviewed a masked Hemsworth over Skype getting the audience to guess who he was.

On the big news (and being presented with a huge gold mirrored trophy), the 31-year old Australian actor said, "Thank you, I'm most excited about the alive portion of that statement, and the sexy part is a bonus."


On beating his Hunger Games star brother Liam Hemsworth to the title he said, "Liam has been good, he's been a real team player for this one. We've been throwing sexy looks back and forth."

And on what Chris has learnt from previous 'Sexiest Man Alive' champ Matt Damon? "I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt - pursing the lips, squinting at the right time," he said. "Thank you Matt and all the other previous intelligent men."
