Hugh Jackman has joked that he's "formed a solidarity" with other good-looking Hollywood stars.
The Australian hunk is known for his great physique and was even crowned Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine in 2008.
The Les Misérables actor has quipped he copes with the honour by clubbing together with other gorgeous A-listers.
"Yeah, but it's OK, because me, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp have formed a solidarity," he laughed to British magazine OK!, when asked if people tease him about the accolade.
"If anyone makes fun of us for it, then we let it be known that they'll never work again! [Laughs] I don't have the power to do that, but George does!"
It's been a while since Jackman bagged the title and since then Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum have followed in his footsteps.
Despite joking from his pals, the 44-year-old made the most of his moment in the spotlight.
"I think it's funny and I got ribbed by my friends a lot. One of my mates emailed me to say he had cowboy boots sexier than me!" he grinned.
"When I travelled, I realised it was a bigger deal than I thought, so I milked it for all it was worth, until this day actually - I'm very surprised I'm not carrying the magazine with me now - normally I have it!"
The stud is well and truly taken and has been married to Deborra-Lee Furness since 1996.
His wife had a rather disappointing reaction to his Sexiest Man Alive title.
"Deb was like, 'Alright, sexy boy, take the garbage out!' First she said, 'Of course, who else would I marry?' But then she paused and questioned why they hadn't picked Brad Bitt!" he recalled.
