Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston has redeemed himself after losing to Superman’s Henry Cavill in Glamour UK’s Sexiest’s Man Alive contest. Hiddleston has now claimed the title in MTV’s recent poll. Shortly after the Loki actor was mobbed by a crazed throng of fan girls. Meanwhile, the actor is using his newfound fame for a good cause. Hiddleston has recently lent his talents to a short film, promoting UNICEF charities.

Tom Hiddleston is one of the hottest young actors today. The Thor star recently came in at number one in MTV’s Sexiest Man Alive poll. Hiddleston won with an impressive 77 percent of the vote. X-Men Days of Future Past star Michael Fassbender, A.K.A. Magneto, came in second place for the poll. However, Hiddleston is a bit of a magnet himself. The Disney prince was mobbed by crazed fans last week after leaving a performance of Shakespear's Coliolanius at London’s Donmar Warehouse.

Hiddleston is also using some of his immense popularity for a good cause. Hiddleston joins Ewan McGregor, Michael Sheen, Emma Bunton, Rita Ora and Tinie Tempah in Unicef's new short film, No Place Like Home. The new video was made to raise awareness and support for the children of Syria.

Hiddleston recently tweeted about the cause, writing:
 "Please watch @mcgregor_ewan @michaelsheen @RitaOra & me in @UNICEF_uk's #noplacelikehome film for Syrian children."
