Scarlett Johansson thinks Chris Hemsworth is "shockingly handsome".

The 30-year-old actress - who has four-month-old daughter Rose Dorothy with her husband Romain Dauriac - presented the hunk with the Excellence in Film Award on Saturday (31.01.15) at the 2015 G'Day USA Gala and Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts International Awards, where she praised him for his beauty along with his acting ability.

She gushed: "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."

During her speech, she also recalled a plane ride she took with him, along with co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans, during a press trip to promote 'The Avengers', where they were all amazed he continued to look incredibly attractive while asleep.

She said: "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. 'My, God,' proclaimed Ruffalo, 'what a specimen.'"

In November, Chris - who wed 'Snakes on a Plane' actress Elsa Pataky in 2010 - was named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, following in the footsteps of previous winners George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds.
