CHRIS Hemsworth may have been named Man of the Year by Empire magazine, but he says he isn't even "man of the house" amongst his family.

Chris Hemsworth's wife and daughter "run the show" in his family.

The 'Thor' actor - who has six-month-old daughter India with spouse Elsa Pataky - is the least listened to person in his household and he can't see the situation ever changing.

Speaking after being named Man of the Year by Empire magazine, he said: "It's very nice, what does that mean? Man of the Year? I'd love to be man of the house but with my wife and now my daughter I don't think I'll ever hold that title! They certainly run the show."

Chris, 29, also admitted he worries he and actor brother Liam Hemsworth sound like they were raised in a "feral" household when they discuss their upbringing in Australia, because he had a very loving and stable childhood.

He added: "I've said to my brothers - well, Liam anyway - 'Man we've got to stop talking about getting into fights as kids because we sound like we're from some feral, rough family, and it's bulls**t.'

"We grew up in the bush sometimes, but we had a great childhood and great parents. It was what led us to being actors; they were always incredibly supportive. There was nothing else I wanted to do."
