Dempsey: (Almost) The Sexiest Man Alive

Clooney Edges Out Dempsey
We all know Patrick Dempsey is the sexiest man alive. In the eyes of millions of Grey's Anatomy fans, it's no contest.

But apparently another handsome gentleman - one who used to play a hot doctor on TV - has edged Patrick out for People Magazine's annual honor.

Yes, former ER star George Clooney was named Sexiest Man Alive by People for the second time. But Patrick still made the magazine's cover (right), and is featured inside along with various other hunks. We'll take it. Being an also-ran isn't shabby when you're going up against the likes of Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Patrick, 40, is married to stylist and cosmetics executive Jillian Fink Dempsey. They have a (very cute) 4-year-old daughter, Tallulah, and Jillian is currently pregnant again -- with twins!

The former teen heart throb is enjoying his second go-around with fame and has a sense of humor about his sudden burst of sexiness.

"This is so funny. I'm a hunky guy now," he says. "How did that happen?"

Still the Best

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)

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."
