Following in the footsteps of Adam Levine, Chris Hemsworth landed the coveted title, telling the mag he and his wife, Elsa Pataky, both thought it was "pretty funny" when they first heard the news.
Still, he has no problem embracing the title...and rubbing it in every now and then.
"I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house," he told People. "I can just say to [my wife], '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.' "
The 31-year-old Thor star is not only Liam Hemsworth's older brother, but he has also managed to balance his busy acting career with his family life. The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, has three kids – daughter India, 2 ½, and 8-month-old twin sons Sasha and Tristan.
"We just had a big beach day with the kids, swimming and kicking the ball around," he said. "That was the first time in a long time we've done that. That's what it's all about."
Before Chris, Adam Levine held the "Sexiest Man Alive" title in 2013, Channing Tatum nabbed it in 2012 and Bradley Cooper landed it in 2011.
