The moment Chris Hemsworth welcomed kids into this world, he instantly became one of the hunkiest dads in Hollywood, but we'd argue that what makes this famous parent even more attractive is the way he gushes about being a father.

E! News caught up with Hemsworth during the junket for his upcoming film Blackhat, an action thriller about a cyber criminal, and the proud papa couldn't help but praise fatherhood and his three little ones at home—and it was absolutely adorable.

"I think it makes you less selfish, because it's no longer about you," he tells us of being a parent. "It can't be. It's about someone else, which is refreshing. It's nice to not spend all your time thinking about your own problems and garbage up there and I just have so much fun doing it. It's the best. And now I'm a bit more choosy, I think, with when I work and how I work because it better be worthwhile to take me away from them."


The actor, 31, and his wife Elsa Pataky, 38, are parents to daughter India, 2, and twin sons Tristan and Sasha, 8 months, and even at their children's young age, Hemsworth explains that he started to notice admirable character traits the second they were born.

"My daughter's 2-and-a-half and my two boys are like 8 months old, so I roll around the floor with them and on the trampoline, especially, because they can just bounce and fall over and no one gets hurt," he began to say.

"My daughter is full energy, like my wife and I, and strong-minded and has an opinion, like we do. And my boys, one's a bit more calm and chill and the other is much more sensitive to things. You see this right away, when they're first born. One cried, one didn't, with the boys."

When he wasn't talking about being a daddy, Hemsworth touched on his recent title as People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 (and just in case you were wondering, he still laughs about it).

"First getting told about it and just laughing, and then telling my wife and my brothers and they laughed even harder, I think," Chris tells us. "I thought it would give me some bragging rights, but they were like, 'No, re-count, re-count.' They didn't buy it for a second. They asked how many people turned it down before it got to me."

Aw! Well, we think a lot of fans would disagree with that sentiment (just look at him!).
