Anyone who can make Thor look sexier than, well, just about anything deserves to be rewarded with some sort of accolade, so thank GOD someone’s finally had the decency to award Chris Hemsworth that honour.
Yup, Chris has OFFICIALLY been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2014, and we can’t really disagree tbh.
We never could’ve chosen between all the fit male celebs in the world anyway.
WELL DONE CHRIS ON HAVING THE BEST GENES IN ALL THE LAND.
His brother Liam must be kicking himself for not growing out his hair and wielding a hammer. We still would though, don’t worry Liam.
31-year-old Chris was told of his latest achievement on the Jimmy Kimmel show – after Jimmy jokingly announced that he’d withdrawn from the runnings himself. LOLZ.
He joked with the audience: “Sexiest man alive is the nuclear launch code of magazine covers.”
“The criteria for sexiest man alive is very strict. First of all, you must be sexy. Secondly, you must be alive. If you’re ugly or dead, forget about it, you’re not going to win. We will see who does win in about ten minutes. Is it a win? I hope it’s somebody fat this year, I really do.”
Errr, unlucky Jimmy!
After initially appearing on the show via Skype with a voice changer as he answered the audience’s yes or no questions, his identity was FINALLY guessed and we reckon they were more excited than Santa at Christmas.
Chris said: “Thank you very much for the trophy. I’m most excited about the alive portion of that statement. I’m flattered. Thank you, Jimmy.
“Liam is good. We’ve been throwing sexy looks back and forth all week. So he’s been a real team player through this.
“I like everything there is about being sexy, to pursing the lips the right way to squinting at the essential time. Thank you, Matt Damon, and all the other previous intelligent men. This is based on an IQ test, not just the physical appearance.”
He also thanked: “My parents, I guess, for putting this together.”
WE THANK THEM TOO. LOTS. Thanks for spawning this god-like man, guys. You’re the best.
Chris appears on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE as some sort of reward (we guess) for being so damn fine, and thanked the magazine for giving him “a couple of weeks of bragging rights” in the house he shares with wife Elsa Pataky and their three kids.
He said: “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.’”
Errrr, good luck with that one Chris!
He’s in good company with this award, as previous winners include George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Reynolds and Ben Affleck.
Well, we certainly LOVE this time of year judging by these types of awards. Long may they continue.
And CONGRATS CHRIS! Can we grab a congratulatory hug now please?
