The People magazine’s contest “The Sexiest Man Alive” goes around the world, searching for just that guy, and according to the magazine the title in 2014 goes to the star of the Marvel Comics’ Thor, Chris Hemsvort (31).
The honor to deliver this announcement was placed in the hands of Jimmy Kimmel, Host of Jimmy Kimmel Live. When Kimmel spoke to Hemsvort, Kimmel did not miss the opportunity to ask for a message to his nemesis, Matt Damon, to which Hemsvort replied jokingly, “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.”.
Hemsworth is a bit of an intriguing pick for the sexiest man of 2014. The Aussie on-screen character hasn’t graced the wide screen since 2013, when he featured in Thor: The Dark World and Rush. So in spite of the fact that there’s no debating whether he’s a film star, there may be some verbal confrontation about whether this was his year.
The performing artist, thought it was “really interesting” when he first heard the news – as did his wife, the Spanish model Elsa Pataky(38), whom he marry in 2010.
“I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house”, he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “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.’ “
Last year for the title of sexiest man was voted Maroon 5 singer, Adam Levine, and also on the list are Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Bradley Cooper, while the first winner in 1985 was Mel Gibson.
