It’s that time of year again ladies. 

Following in the footsteps of Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Magic Mike actor Channing Tatum and fan favourite George Clooney, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has been named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.

The announcement was made by Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday, with Hemsworth taking part in a Skype call with the host to accept the coveted award.

Currently in Australia with his young family, including 2-year-old daughter India and 8-month-old twins Tristan and Sasha, the 31-year-old thanked People Magazine for the award and joked “This is based on an IQ test and not just physical appearance.”

Chris also thanked his parents for “for putting this together” while cheekily gesturing towards his very muscular physique. 

The star revealed that he thought winning the award was “pretty funny” and that his wife of four years Elsa Pataky had also had a laugh.

“I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house,” Chris joked to People. “I can just say to her, ‘Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don’t need to do the dishes anymore, I don’t need to change nappies. I’m above that. I’ve made it now.’”

Chris has always placed a strong focus on his family life, sharing that while he loves his work, he would prefer to be at home in Australia with his wife and children.

“We just had a big beach day with the kids, swimming and kicking the ball around. That was the first time in a long time that we’ve done that. That’s what it’s all about”

  • No I don’t, he doesn’t do it for me.


  • My hubby is the sexist man alive… Chris is a close second ;)


  • This does not surprise me in the slightest haha


  • I knew this 15 yrs ago lol


  • Muscular aussie super father who happens to be named Chris.
    That description perfectly fits my partner.
    Im dating the sexiest man alive


  • hahaha, I had the hots for him when I was a kid and he was on either home and away or neighbours. lol


  • just a wonderful down to earth man


  • I think he is very handsome, and more importantly they have twins. A wonderful addition to any family..Truly Blessed


  • He’s not my cup of tea, but I can certainly see the appeal. Being an involved dad is pretty sexy though.
    Ryan Gosling for sure, also Hamish Blake.


  • Funny, I thought the jawline belonged to Hugh Jackson.


  • He is pretty darn sexy. I have to agree with this award!


  • No argument from me on this! Gotta love the Hemsworths.


  • I think these awards are so ridiculous, and simply reinforce the obsession with physical appearance over all else. What is sexy to one person is different to what the next person finds sexy anyway! Am sure he’s a good actor and probably a nice guy, but doesn’t do much for me.

    • I mean he’s not an ugly guy but he just doesn’t do it for me, not my type i guess. So he wouldn’t have my vote.


  • Chris Hemsworth congrats


  • He has become a very talented actor. I recently saw him in a movie where he played a Brittish racing car driver, and he was superb.
