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

Well at least he's on the list and if you think about it, second place isn't bad at all. He'll most likely be number one next year. The sexiest man alive has always been based on someone who's had a huge year(at least that's what the editors at People magazine who are in charged of this yearly list have said) and Matt Damon has had a huge year with The Good Shepard, The Departed, and The Bourne Ultimatum.


How anyone could pick Matt Damon over PATRICK is mindboggling to me! I don't get that at all! But he came very close and is absolutely the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE for all of us McDreamy fans!


wow i think patrick should of won for sure...matt damon is ugly and patrick is the sexiest man alive. i was very mad once i heard today...


Well there is No Doubt that he is #1 in my book! Its a shame he didn't get #1 this year even thought there is certainly nothing wrong with #2. It seems that he has been #2 the last two years with last year behind George Clooney and the year before behind Mathew McConahey. Oh well, he is definately the Sexiest Man ALive to Me!
Don't forget to vote for Patrick on People's Choice Awards for Favorite Male Actor on TV!


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
