Last year, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine got the same title, and now The Hunger Games actor Chris Hemsworth was crowned.
The Australian actor has been named Sexiest Man Alive during the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show on Tuesday.
Hemsworth, 31, appeared Tuesday night on TV via Skype, his face and voice distorted, answering questions from the studio audience who tried to find his identity.
“Thank you very much for the trophy. I’m most excited about the alive portion of that statement. I’m flattered. Thank you, Jimmy,” he said after the audience guessed his identity.
“Liam is good. We’ve been throwing sexy looks back and forth all week. So he’s been a real team player through this,” the Thor actor joked about there being no hard feelings from his brother, Liam Hemsworth.
“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 added.
Chris Hemsworth has been married to Elsa Pataky since 2010. They have three children, twin sons Sasha and Tristan, 8-month-old, and daughter India, 2.
