Your 2014 Sexiest Man Alive is Chris Hemsworth.

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel revealed People magazine’s cover featuring the 31-year-old actor probably best known as Thor in Marvel's Thor and Avengers films.

Hemsworth joked with People magazine about the title of Sexiest Man Alive. “I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house. I can just say to my 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, now.’”

Runners up to the Sexiest Man Alive title included Chris Pratt, Idris Elba, Blake Shelton, Jamie Dornan, Michael Strahan, Tim Tebow, Matt Bomer and Scott Foley.

Blake would have been an intriguing pick by taking the hand-off from the 2013 Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine, also ofThe Voice.

Oddly, Chris has been absent from the big screen since last year’s release of Thor: The Dark World. Though he has several movies on the docket for early next year, including thenext Avengers chapter where the civil war commences.

Hemsworth is the older brother of Miley Cyrus’s ex-fiance, Liam Hemsworth, who stars with Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games franchise.

Next week, Netflix was to launch a one-hour comedy special featuring Bill Cosby.

The show was already taped, in San Francisco, before the resurgence of sexual assault accusations against the legendary comic.

Netflix really has no choice but to press pause on the special, but it may not be completely canceled. A spokesperson said in a statement released last night, “At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand-up comedy special Bill Cosby 77.”

This latest development places even more pressure on NBC to cut ties with the controversial comedian. Earlier in the year they’d touted a sit-com deal with Cosby. To their dismay, they could cancel the show, but Cosby’s iron-clad contract stipulates he still gets paid a bundle.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was crowned Cigar Smoker of the Year at an awards dinner in London.

“The Terminator” star beat competition from other smokey stars including Kelsey Grammer, who was runner-up, and Sir Michael Caine, Ricky Gervais, Laurence Fishburne and London mayor Boris Johnson, who were all nominated for the prize.

Schwarzenegger and Grammer both attended the Spectator Cigar Awards Dinner and there seemed to be no rivalry among them as they were spotted sitting together.

The former muscleman joked, “When you’ve been a body building champion, and you’ve done movies and you’ve done all the various things which I have done, you receive a lot of trophies and a lot of awards. But I can tell you one thing, this one tonight is really the most… recent.”

The story behind Guns N' Roses' debut album is headed to the big screen. Marc Canter says his 2007 book Reckless Road: Guns N' Roses and the Making of 'Appetite for Destruction' is being turned into a movie. He says it will be a biopic rather than a documentary, and expects some big names to sign on once the script is finished.

Canter says he even thinks GNR frontman Axl Rose will be happy with the project, even though the singer is known for not supporting anything to do with the original version of the band.

Canter spent a lot of time with Guns N' Roses in the early days as a childhood friend of Slash and the group's official photographer. He says the movie will set the record straight on stories about the band that have so far been "told incompletely."

This is a pretty incredible reminder of how loyal dogs are. There's a reason we happily spend $200 trillion on dog toys and leashes and crap every single year.

An 85-year-old guy in San Angelo, Texas named J.R. Nicholson was feeling dizzy a few weeks ago, and called 911 for help. So the paramedics came, loaded him into the ambulance, and took him to the hospital.

But they didn't realize his 35-pound beagle named Buddy didn't want to leave J.R.'s side.

Buddy hopped onto the little side step of the ambulance without any of the paramedics noticing . . . and just sat there, riding the ambulance, as it went to the hospital.

About 20 miles into the drive, another driver flagged them down and told them there was a DOG on the side of the ambulance. They didn't really have a choice at that point, so they loaded Buddy into the back and took him the rest of the way.

J.R. stayed one night at the hospital and was released. And Buddy stayed with him the entire time.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Police say a Florida man stole a chain saw by sticking it down his pants.

Surveillance video from Treasure Coast Lawn Equipment in Port St. Lucie shows the man putting the tool worth more than $600 down his pants on Oct. 28.

Police tell Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that Anthony Ballard had come in asking for $1 worth of change.

Police say employees chased Ballard, who ditched the tool in a wooded lot. The employees called 911 when they saw Ballard return to look for it.

Ballard told police he stole the tool but had a change of heart and wanted to return it.

He was held Thursday on grand theft and burglary charges. Bond was set at $28,750. Jail records didn’t show whether he had an attorney.

Remember how crazy everybody went when a frowning feline known as "Grumpy Cat" took over the internet?

Grumpy cat (actual name: Tartar Sauce) was put on everything from pajama pants to backpacks, and the world just couldn't get enough.

Well, be careful what you wish for, society, because coming this Christmas on the Lifetime Network is the movie Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

Grumpy cat will be voiced by Parks and Rec actress Aubrey Plaza ... and the movie will be sure to seal little Tartar Sauce's fate as an internet has-been that we can't wait to be done with.

Meowy Christmas! Image title
