The star of "Thor: The Dark World" is the complete package: great looks, a body he worked unbelievably hard for and a white-hot career. But perhaps the best part about the 30-year-old actor is how much he loves his expectant wife, Elsa Pataky, 37, and their 18-month-old daughter, India Rose. "It makes it harder and harder to leave and go to work," he told People magazine of being a dad. "I enjoy being at home a lot more than I ever have. … She's the best."

Not only is Bryan one of the most dreamy singers in Nashville today, but he's sensitive too. After enduring two family tragedies, he spoke out in an effort to help others. "If me telling my story moves people down a positive path of hope and getting up out of the bed and getting back going, then, you know, it's certainly worth telling," he said.

That face. That accent. That talent. Elba, who rose to fame as Stringer Bell in "The Wire," was suggested in the comments section as Sexiest Man Alive. Don't worry -- you'll see more of him going forward. The Brit, who can currently be seen in "Thor: The Dark World" with Hemsworth, is also starring in "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," which is due out soon.

Ah, Brad Pitt -- what's not to love? He's a family man, a supportive partner -- and one hot actor. As a two-time winner of the award, why not make it a threepeat?

Or, why not go with Pitt's best friend, Clooney, who also won the award twice? Not only is this Oscar winner funny, talented and friendly, but he loves the title. Why not give it to a seasoned vet?

For his part, Clooney had been rooting for Gosling back in 2011. "He really wants it. He's been saying... the whole time we were on the set of 'Ides,' he was like, 'How did you pull that off?'" he said."So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk... we told him how to train... everything." Readers everywhere agree. One year, picketers protested Sexiest Man Alive because Gosling wasn't the winner.

He showed off his body in last year's "Magic Mike," and Bomer perenially charms audiences with his show, "White Collar." In fact, so many women love Bomer that they campaigned for him to win the lead in the "50 Shades of Grey" movie. So, is Sexiest Man Alive next?
