Hemsworth, 31, had been part of a long list of celebs whose names were floating around as possible contenders for the title. Many actually considered him a long shot compared to actors like Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Pratt, Matthew McConaughey and his younger brother, Hunger Games heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. All these men had projects come out this year, and/or are set to have something come out soon.
There's no denying that Chris Hemsworth is an objectively attractive human being, but is he the Sexiest Man Alive? Is he even the sexiest man in the upcoming sequel The Avengers: Age Of Ultron? (It's got to go to James Spader's voice, right?) Check out the trailer below, and judge for yourself.
