Congratulations are in order for Chris Hemsworth -- he's been named PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2014!

"I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house," the 'Avengers' actor joked to the magazine.

And while he revealed that he thought his new title was "pretty funny," he admitted that he's going to use it to his advantage when it comes to his wife, Elsa Pataky, and the couple's three young children.

"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 [diapers]," the Aussie hunk kidded. "I'm above that. I've made it now.'"

Jimmy Kimmel announced the news on his show last night (Nov. 18), making the audience ask a masked Hemsworth (via Skype) a bunch of yes or no questions before the big revelation. And when the big unveiling finally happened (which you can watch in the video below), Kimmel couldn't resist acting the elder Hemsworth what his younger brother Liam thought of the news.

"Liam's been good. … We've been throwing back sexy looks back and forth all week," he joked. "He's been a real team player."

That's some true brotherly love right there. (Psst: They're both the Sexiest Men Alive in our book.)
