Chris Hemsworth, who just barely dodged the bullet of becoming Miley Cyrus' brother-in-law. The Thor star, 31, trots out the standard line of finding it "pretty funny" to be named the sexiest, noting that he can now tell wife Elsa Pataky, "I don't need to change nappies. I'm above that. I've made it now." He also reveals that he—and we'll use People's exact words here—"prefers to sleep sans pajamas."
