I don’t need to do the dishes: Chris Hemsworth

People magazine has named Chris Hemsworth the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ of 2014, cheering the Australian actor’s rise as hammer-wielding, bone fide hunk in the Thor films. Hemsworth, who also starred as Formula One racer James Hunt in the Ron Howard-directed Rush and the Star Trek reboots, was unveiled as the winner on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

When asked who he wanted to thank, Hemsworth told Kimmel his parents, “for putting this together.”

He joins a list of hunks with the honour, including Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Patrick Swayze, Sean Connery, Ben Affleck, Channing Tatum and Adam Levine. Mel Gibson was the first in 1985.

The 31-year-old star of Thor: The Dark World and his 38-year-old wife, Elsa Pataky of Fast and Furious 6, have three children. The actor’s younger brother, Liam, stars in the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Hemsworth told People that the award “bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights” around the house and with his wife. “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.’”
