Obviously, we are kidding. Sorry to disturb you like that.
Last night, Jimmy Kimmel revealed People magazine’s cover featuring Chris Hemsworth, the 31-year-old actor probably best known as Thor in Marvel’s Thor and Avengers films.
Hemsworth joked with People magazine about the title of Sexiest Man Alive. “I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house. I can just say to my wife, Elsa Pataky, ‘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, now.’”
Runners upto the Sexiest Man Alive title included Chris Pratt, Idris Elba, Blake Shelton, Jamie Dornan, Michael Strahan, Tim Tebow, Matt Bomer and Scott Foley. Blake would have been an intriguing pick by taking the hand-off from the 2013 Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine, also of The Voice.
Oddly, Chris has been absent from the big screen since last year’s release of Thor: The Dark World. Though he has several movies on the docket for early next year, including the next Avengers chapter where the civil war commences.
Other Australians to be named Sexiest include Hugh Jackman and Mel Gibson. The Hemsworths now have the potential of becoming the first brothers to earn the title. Chris perfectly fits the mold, beyond his handsome good looks. People magazine typically picks blockbuster actors over the age of 30… So, 27-year-old Zac Efron will have to wait a few more years.
Check out the latest trailer for Hemsworth’s upcoming movie, Avenger: Age of Ultron.
