Chris Hemsworth named Sexiest Man Alive

Wednesday November 19, 2014

Chris Hemsworth has won the title of Sexiest Man Alive.

The accolade awarded by People magazine was announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.

In a live video call, the 31-year-old Thor actor thanked People and quipped that he was "most excited about the alive portion of that statement, and the sexy part is a bonus".

When asked if there was anyone else he’d like to thank, he pointed to his body and added: "My parents, I guess, for putting this together."

Though he didn’t have a major movie released this year, 2015 looks like it will be a big year for Chris as he’s set to star in the next Avengers film and take the leading role in Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea.

Other contenders for the title included Neil Patrick Harris, Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Chris Pratt, who was widely considered to be the favourite.

Chris, a father of three, is the 28th Sexiest Man Alive to date and takes over the title from Adam Levine.
