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.

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

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
