Rumors had him in the running but he didn't quite make it this time. Our huntsman, Chris Hemsworth (Thor to others) makes the cover of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
The man who holds that honor is Maroon 5's frontman and Universal NBC's The Voice judge Adam Levine.
Chris has had a heck of a year with the release of his race car drama Rush directed by Ron Howard and his Marvel blockbuster Thor: The Dark World.
Chris is currently filming again with Howard the whale ship drama In the Heart of the Sea and will begin filming the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron next year.
The special issue hits the stands this Friday.

Her everyday outfit is just like the majority of us...sneaks jeans and a tee. But when it comes to a red carpet, being a magazine covergirl or showing up at Paris Fashion week, she knows how to work it.
Glamour UK names Kristen Stewart their Best Dressed Woman of 2013. Stewart was number one last year as well and it is well deserved.
And she does it again. Go-to gown? Not this girl. Red-carpet dressing means everything from leather trews to shorts and all-in-one lace jumpsuits for the ever-cool K-Stew. Whether in Zuhair Murad or Balenciaga, every looks comes complete with a nod to her personal rock-chick style. What a year!"
Read the entire list here.
The dimples were still in full force as Sam Claflin charmed his way through a throng of fans and media at the Hunger Games: Catching Fire world premiere Monday evening at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
Claflin has been on a non-stop media blitz and fan promotion tour taking him on mall tours to fan camps.
Now with the promo tour winding down, Claflin let loose on the red carpet with the fans and media.
This will be Claflin's third soon-to-be blockbuster after The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman.
Claflin plays the heartthrob Finnick Odair which happens to be one of the few lovable characters in the Hunger Games series.
Among one of the funnier interviews, Claflin talks to MTV News reporter Josh Horowitz about the slight backlash he received on Twitter from those who were none to pleased with his selection as Finnick.
He notes tweets that said they would "jump off a bridge" if he was Finnick. And as always Claflin laughs it off in good spirits by saying, "I hope they're OK..."
Don't worry Sam, you have plenty of support and there are those of us who cannot wait to see you crush the role on screen.
Catching Fire hits theaters worldwide this Friday.

San Claflin with Jena Malone greeting a fan.
Lionsgate gave Hunger Games fans a chance to meet the stars of Catching Fire who included SWATH's Sam Claflin, Josh Hutcherson, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone and director Francis Lawrence on the second day of their Fan Camp Sunday held at LA Live in Los Angeles.
Unlike the Twilight fan camps, this one was a bit more subdued and smaller in size. There were no concerts or members of the cast running around what is affectionately known as "tent city" greeting them at all hours of the day and night. Also, the camp was only held for 2 days instead of the mega 4 days like a Twilight camp.
But Hunger Games fans had the opportunity to get autographs and chat with the stars and the director on both days.
Check out an account of Day 1 here as well as photos and video at MockingJay.net as well as other Hunger Games sites.
Catching Fire will hold its LA premiere tonight at the Nokia Theater and will open worldwide November 22nd.
