Patrick Dempsey Almost Named Sexiest Man Alive

at . Comments

Hey, #2 isn't so bad, right?

Leading the way for a talented Grey's Anatomy cast as well in several films - and most importantly, as husband to Jillian and father to Talula, Sullivan and Darby - Patrick Dempsey placed second on People magazine's annual Sexiest Man Alive list.

Patrick Dempsey narrowly lost out to Matt Damon, a fairly sexy fellow in his own right. But there's little question who our choice would have been at the Insider...

Patrick Dempsey: Second to none in the minds of Grey's Anatomy fans.

Matt Damon, a first-time father as of this year, remained coy about his win, saying, "You've given an aging suburban dad the ego boost of a lifetime."

The magazine cites Matt Damon's "irresistible sense of humor," "rock-solid family man" and "heart-melting humility" for landing him the sexiest title.

People's top 10 Sexiest Men Alive are, as follows:

  1. Matt Damon
  2. Patrick Dempsey
  3. Ryan Reynolds
  4. Brad Pitt
  5. James McAvoy
  6. Johnny Depp
  7. Dave Annable
  8. Will Smith
  9. Javier Bardem
  10. Shemar Moore

He totally should have been #1, but he's still super McDreamy to me.


Well, I hope I spelled it right again. But, again, back to the point: TOO BAD PAT'S MARRIED!!!


Ok, well, we hope we spelt admirerers right! Back to the point. Matt Damon is pretty hot, so is Leo Dicaprio and David Beckham, and Pete Wentz, but Pat is the hottest of them all. We have to admit, pretty sexy. I don't know what it is, but I just want to run my fingers through hhis hair so badly! I don't know why! Super sexy though.


Patrick is so much sexier then Matt. Patrick is seriously hott..............


I so love Matty but I have to say that Patrick is more good looking and sexier than Matty. A Top Ten List with the most sexiest man alive without George Clooney in it is a complete shame.


Patrick should be number one, followed by Eric Dane and then Kyle Chandler, who are both really sexy too! Greyslover said it best!


Seriously this whole top ten list is really lame. Apparently sexy doesnt mean handsome for some of these folks.


Well it's obviously.. Patty is waaay more sexy than Matt Damon, isn't it?? I don't have anything against Matt, but come on.. He's a 'cute boy'...Whil Patrick..Patrick is a sexy man!!


I cannot beleive the writers at the magazine think Matt Damon is sexier that Patrick!!! Come on...... Matt is cute, but sexy?? NO WAY!!!!


I´m SO F´ing ANGRY. I mean SERIOUSLY Matt Damon SEXIER then our Paddy i SERIOUSLY DON´T THINK SO. He´s been SERIOUSLY ripped off McDreamy forever. I wonder what Jill thinks.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
