Film hunk Chris Hemsworth is the official owner of Australia's Sexiest Celebrity Beard!
In a poll of 3,537 Take 5 readers, the 35-year-old Byron Bay resident beat 19 other hairy hopefuls to the title.
The magazine's readers judged The Avengers actor to be hotter than those sported by his brother Liam, Simon Baker, Hamish Blake, Joel Edgerton and Hugh Jackman.
Take 5 editor Paul Merrill said:
"We asked the readers to judge the actual beards themselves, not the faces or bodies behind then.
It seems that Aussie women are impressed with the complete Hemsworth package as Chris won by some distance!
I'm sure he'll consider this the highlight of his career to date."
Chris, who has recently completed filming the Men In Black reboot, revealed earlier this year that the secret to his beard's softness is coconut oil.
Runner up in the poll was Have You Been Paying Attention and radio star Marty Sheargold.
He was followed by Hamish Blake in third and The Living Room's Miguel Maestre in fourth.
Take 5 is Australia's No.1 real life and puzzles title and has been voted Magazine of the Year for the past three years.
