Chris Hemsworth honors wife as Johansson gushes about her Thor

Hollywood's Sexiest Man Alive, Chris Hemsworth, paid tribute to his actress wife as he collected the Excellence in Film Award at the 2015 G'Day USA Gala and Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts International Awards in Hollywood on Saturday night (31Jan15).

The Avengers star and Elsa Pataky took time off from parenting duties to attend the annual gala and the Spanish actress had to listen as her husband's co-star Scarlett Johansson gushed about her man as she presented him with his latest accolade.


Recalling a moment when the Thor star fell asleep on a plane during The Avengers press tour, Johansson told the audience, "Chris decided to take a little cat nap. He collapsed into a giant perfect heap, his lion's mane gracefully falling around his prominent chiselled features."


And, hoping that "some of his stardust would drift my way", the actress added, "He's all at once sensitive and ferocious, otherworldly and grounded, is shockingly handsome and is surprisingly approachable. He is every man and like no man you've met before. He is versatile despite his physicality, which makes him a grade A movie star."


Hemsworth then took the stage at the event and gushed about his wife, Fast & Furious 6 star Pataky, calling her "the greatest thing I've gotten over the last few years", adding, "Thank you very much to everyone, but especially my wife."


Pataky is the mother of Hemsworth's daughter India Rose, two, and twin sons, Tristan and Sasha, who were born in March (14).


The actor's brothers Liam and Luke also joined the party, which was hosted by Nicole Kidman and Geoffrey Rush.


The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts also honored Birdman as its Best Picture and Michael Keaton as Best Actor, while Still Alice's Julianne Moore landed the Best Actress award and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) and Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) continued their winning streaks as Best Supporting Actor and Actress.
