The Thor star topped the annual list by People Magazine, beating out competition from the likes of Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan and actors Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum.
Chris, 31, told the mag he and wife Elsa Pataky found it "pretty funny" when they learned of the accolade. Lucky, lucky Elsa, right?!
The Australian actor and Spanish actress Elsa have three children together: daughter India, two, and eight-month-old twins Sasha and Tristan.
Chris joked: "I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house. I can just say to her, '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 Sexiest Man Alive 2014 title was revealed on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Liveepisode in the US.
Chris' voice and face were disguised as audience members asked him questions via Skype to try to determine his identity... questions included, 'Have you ever been in a superhero movie?' (YES) and 'Do you have a famous sibling?' (YES! Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth!)
In the end, it was a question about whether or not his superhero has a hammer that revealed his identity!
So, what does Liam think about it? Chris joked: "We've been throwing sexy looks back and forth all week and workshopping. He's been a real team player throughout this."
Aww.. Chris. We're just a bit in love!
