Earlier today, the world learned that Chris Hemsworth is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014.
The honor forever cements Chris' place as the Awesome Hemsworth, and reminds the world that his brother Liam is the one who got engaged to a pre-twerk Miley Cyrus before going on to get like three seconds of screen time in The Hunger Games.
However, Chris may never have been able to add "Sexiest Dude" to a resume that already includes "Thor" and "more Thor" were it not for Ryan Gosling who's apparently just not into labels, girl.
"They tried a few times, especially during his huge year in 2011," says a source close to Gosling. The Baby Goose reportedly had zero interest in the title and believed it would hurt his career.
Who could blame him? Look what it did to Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon. Where are those losers now?
