Three years ago, everyone assumed People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive was going to be Ryan Gosling — but instead, Bradley Cooper scored the cover. Well, looks like we were bamboozled again because instead of Chris Pratt receiving the title, like many of us thought, the 2014 honour went to Chris Hemsworth.
It makes perfect sense. Chris is handsome and hunky, at times resembling a younger Brad Pitt. He’s got those blue eyes and blonde hair, he’s a good, hard-working actor and he’s an all-around decent guy.
But what truly makes him sexy is he’s a happily married (to model Elsa Pataky) devoted father of three. Come on, there’s nothing sexier than a man who shows his love for his wife and kids, and time and time again, Hemsworth has said they are what matter most to him. Now that’s hot.
Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that he looks great without a shirt on.
He likes the water…
… and the water likes him. Humina, humina.
He beat out some other superheroes for the title including Iron Man…
…and Captain America…
… er, let’s not tell the Hulk though.
Most importantly, he can resist the power of the Hiddles. Now that’s a superpower.
Really, though, look at that face — what’s not to love?
