The ‘Bad Neighbours’ actor, Zac Efron has been crowned as the hottest hunk of 2014 according to a recent poll conducted by Heat magazine.

The-26-year-old-actor who has been struggling with alcoholic addiction since 2010 has hopped up three ranks to grab the title.

Zac managed to take the top spot from last year’s winner Tom Daley who now stands at number 2 in the list. David Beckham took the third place, while Harry Judd and Leonardo Di Caprio completed the top five.

Also appearing in the list is Bradley Cooper, who has risen from last year’s number 12 to this year’s number six.

Our very favorite, former X Factor judge, Gary Barlow, has shot up four places to number seven, while on number 7 we have a newcomer in the list namely Jamie Dornan who will soon be seen as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey.

The Notebook actor Ryan Gosling has fallen four places to number 9 and last but not the least Superman star, Henry Cavill, has made up all the way from number sixty three last year to a respectable number ten.

The magazine reported the reason behind the top position where Zac stand today is his shirtless appearance in the movie Bad Neighbours, along with having his shirt ripped off by Rita Ora at the MTV Award.

Heat Editor-in-Chief Lucie Cave said: “Sometimes the endless procession of sexy celebrity men can seem insuperable.”

She continued: “Leafing through image after image after image can be tough, butHeatworld users managed it – they voted in their thousands and selected Zac Efron as the hottest man alive. For their fortitude and courage, we thank them.”
