Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth named world's sexiest man

AUSTRALIAN actor and Thor avenger Chris Hemsworth is the world's sexiest man, People magazine says.

Hemsworth, who also starred as Formula One racer James Hunt in the Ron Howard-directed Rush was unveiled as the winner on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! program.

With his face at first masked and his voice digitally modified, Hemsworth, 31, speaking from Australia, toyed with playful yes-or-no questions from the American TV audience.

Kimmel's instructions and teasers to his crowd: "If you guess correctly, the sexiest man alive will make love to you, so this is big. I will give you three clues. He is sexy, he is a man, he is alive."
