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

Considering this is probably Patrick's first time on the list, he did REALLY well but come one... it's George Clooney. SERIOUSLY!!! George was like the Mcdreamy of his days when he did ER. On the plus side, Patrick did place second over Brad(who's like #15 on the list) so that really is great for him. You just wait and see next year it'll be Patrick.(Great picture of Patrick btw).

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
