Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 18 (ANI): Hollywood Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has been bestowed GQ magazine's highest honor in its December issue.

The "proud Aussie, talented surfer, doting dad" and "charitable, grounded, funny and successful" actor has been announced as GQ 'Man Of The Year' at the Australian award ceremony in Sydney, reports gq.com.au.

His colleagues also find it hard to say a bad word about the 'Ghosbusters' star, who was once named People magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive'.

In the issue, Hemsworth's 'Thor' co-star Tom Hiddleston sums up the actor appeal.

"One morning on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, I watch Chris zero in on an important scene between Thor and Loki with razor-sharp focus and commitment. The scene required a lot of nuance, but he wanted to shoot it quickly, because he had to be off-set by lunchtime in order to make it to father-daughter day at school in the afternoon," Hiddleston shared.

"That's a Man Of The Year if ever I saw one," the British heartthrob told the magazine.

While receiving the award, Hemsworth thanked his wife, Elsa Pataky and all the "great women" of the world, saying, "You can't have a great man without a great woman."

Other honorees include Dylan Alcott for 'Sportsman of the Year', Atlassian as 'Entrepreneurs of the Year', Iggy Azalea as 'Woman of the Year', Shannon Bennett as 'Chef of the Year', Kyle Chalmers for 'Breakthrough Sportsman of the Year' and many more.(ANI)
