Chris Hemsworth is unveiled as People’s Sexiest Man Alive on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. The Aussie actor first appeared with a board covering his face as Kimmel;s audience tried to guess his identity by asking him questions.
Hemsworth, 31, was then announced as the 2014 recipient of the coveted title as he took part in a Skype video call with the host as he was officially ‘anointed’. After taking off the board and revealing himself, Hemsworth said: “Thank you, I’m most excited about the alive portion of that statement, and the sexy part is a bonus.” Skyping in from his native Australia, Hemwsorth then smiled as he was handed a golden mirror trophy. The Thor star joked: “This is based on an IQ test and not just physical appearance,” and while gesturing to his impressive physique, added that he’d like to thank “my parents for putting this together.” Kimmel then suggested that he had stolen the title from previous winner Matt Damon, but Chris – who is close friends with the actor – said there are no hard feelings. He joked: “I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt – pursing the lips, squinting at the right time. Thank you Matt and all the other previous intelligent men.” When Kimmel asked what his Hunger Games star brother Liam thought of the win, he added: “Liam has been good, he’s been a real team player for this one. We’ve been throwing sexy looks back and forth!”
