How Chris Hemsworth Became the Sexiest Man Alive

People magazine just crowned Australian heart-throb Chris Hemsworth as its sexiest man alive for 2014, and we’re not even slightly surprised that this home-grown hunk took out the title. It’s kind of hard to find those alluring blue eyes, scruffy hair and manly stubble anything other than insanely attractive, not to mention his Thor bod, which kind of makes us wish he didn’t own any clothes.

This might come as a shock to you, but Chris wasn’t always the man he is today. He’s worked hard, at his career, his body, and deciding on a suitable amount of facial hair, to become the sex-on-a-plate we’ve all grown to love.
