How Chris Hemsworth's Wife Reacted to His "Sexiest Man Alive" Title


Chris Hemsworth is officially taking over the reign as People's Sexiest Man Alive! And while Thor finally getting what he's deservedly due is certainly exciting, the cutest part of this anointment, as always, is wife and mom to his three children, Elsa Pataky's, reaction to his most recent honor.

"My wife thought it was pretty funny as I did," the hunky Rush star said in a behind-the-scenes video, above, from the magazine's cover shoot. "We had a good ol' laugh about it. I'll put it on the mantlepiece just to remind her in the coming years when I've bald completely."

As if their reactions weren't adorable and hilarious, Hemsworth continued to tease about his new-found title and what it means for his marriage. "I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house," Hemsworth tells People in their cover story. "I can just say to [wife Elsa Pataky], '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.' "

As you may recall, newlywed Adam Levine got a similar reaction from his future Mrs. when he told her he was dubbed Sexiest Man Alive last year. After the laughs, though, it seems like both of these Hollywood duos relished in the steamy title.
