It’s official: Chris Hemsworth is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive 2014.
After much debate—and much discussion of Chris Pratt possibly taking the title—Jimmy Kimmel announced People‘s pick during Tuesday night’s show. And despite Hemsworth’s name being left out of some of the conversations prior to the reveal, it isn’t hard to see why he made the cut. Abs and accent aside, the man is Thor—not to mention the star of Michael Mann’s upcoming Blackhat.
Hemsworth is, however, a bit of an interesting pick for the sexiest man of 2014. The Aussie actor hasn’t graced the big screen since 2013, when he starred in Thor: The Dark World and Rush. So although there’s no debating whether he’s a movie star, there might be some debate about whether this was his year.
Regardless, Hemsworth has taken the title—adding himself to a very attractive not-so-secret society that already includes the likes of Adam Levine, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, and more.
