Patrick Dempsey: Hunkiest TV Star Ever!

at . Comments

This news is a few weeks old, but we're only learning of and reporting it now. Better late than never, right? Right. Especially when it comes to McDreamy news.

In case you weren't aware, Patrick Dempsey is hot. So much so, in fact, that the Grey's Anatomy star topped AOL TV's list of the 50 Hunkiest TV Stars of all time!

He isn't about to tousle his own gorgeous hair, however.

"Well, there's always going to be somebody else who's going to come along and be the next handsome person," the married father of three says.

"It's all very subjective," Dempsey said. "And there are also a lot of people out there who aren't being recognized, maybe just because they're not on a hit show or something right now. So you have to kind of take it all with a grain of salt."

Hunkiest TV Star Ever!

So modest as always. As for being the leading man of so many adoring Grey's Anatomy fans, the dimpled TV doctor is grateful for the spotlight ... to a degree.

"It's certainly great having the attention," Patrick Dempsey admits, "It's always good for one's ego, but at the end of day, it really is quite an empty statement if you don't have family around you. Because there is no way you can live up to it."

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.


MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
