Chris may cast a sexy big brother shadow both on-screen and off, but real-life little bro Liam deserves some credit for also inheriting the stellar Hemsworth genetics.
We're STILL swooning over Pratt's transformation to play Peter Quill in this summer's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. We'd call him "Star-Lord" any day.
Marvel certainly has a thing for hotties named Chris. We wouldn't be doing our patriotic duty if we left the Captain America star off the list.
Best known as Chris Hemworth's overshadowed on-screen little brother Loki in the Marvel films, Hiddleston's legions of fans treat the studly British actor like more of a god than his on-screen older bro.
The Luther star came in second in People's Sexiest Man Alive rankings in 2013, but we think he deserves a shot at that No. 1 spot.
Neil Patrick Harris
NPH seduced us for years as suave player Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, but it wasn't until we saw him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch's giant platform heels that we got a real look at just how sexy he can be.
Oscar winner, American Cinematheque honoree, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is there anything McConaughey can't do? Answer: Probably not.
Efron stripped down onstage at the MTV Movie Awards to accept his trophy for Best Shirtless Performance. Seems like a great stepping stone to Sexiest Man Alive, no?
It sounds crazy, but with Oscar buzz already generating for Affleck's compelling (and nude!) turn in Gone Girl, the 40-something star has never been hotter.
It's true that Manganiello was recently named People's Hottest Bachelor, but his relationship with Modern Family's Sofia Vergara means that honor no longer applies. Give him another one!
Do we watch Sons of Anarchy for the dark and compelling story, or in the hopes we'll catch Hunnam's character Jax shirtless? We'll never tell.
He might be the third or fourth Chris on our list, but the Star Trek star is first in many fans' hearts. Live long and smolder, Captain Kirk.
The Sherlock star broke hearts around the world when he announced his engagement in a London newspaper. Handsome AND old-fashioned? Swoon.
Tatum won Sexiest Man Alive in 2012 for his steamy stripper flick Magic Mike. Doesn't the award, like the movie, deserve a sequel?
We didn't think Gosling could make us swoon any more, then he went and became a new dad this year. That shirtless body cradling an adorable baby girl? Come on!
The British hunk won hearts as the Sheriff on Once Upon a Time, but it's his upcoming role as kinky billionaire Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey that's really turning heads.
The Vampire Diaries star smolders onscreen as undead hunk Damon Salvatore. We'd gladly spend 173 years by his side.
After making his Hollywood breakthrough headlining two major biopics, 42 and Get On Up, and being announced as Marvel's first headlining black superhero, Boseman's star continues to rise. We would love to go along for the ride.
The Puerto Rican crooner is making his comeback this year, with his steamy new music video "Adios." The father of twin boys is sexy as ever!
Something about the Magic Mike XXL stud just gets us hot under the "collar."
He might be a long-shot, but ever since Momoa's turn as Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, we've been longing to be his "sun and stars."
