Like every year, the magazine People has chosen the “sexiest man alive.” In 2022, he was the actor Chris Evans the one who took home the coveted recognition, and after several weeks of intrigue, the magazine finally revealed that the Captain America will pass the baton to none other than Patrick Dempseythe actor who achieved worldwide fame thanks to his interpretation of the doctor Dereck Shepherd in the series Grey’s Anatomy for a decade.
People confirmed Dempsey as the sexiest man alive with two covers: the first shows the 57 year old actor staring at the camera with his piercing green eyes in a very serious gesture. In this photo, Patrick is with his arms crossed and wearing a gray t-shirt.
On the following cover, Dempsey sports a broad smile, a blue button-down shirt, and shows off a luxurious watch on his left hand.
As part of the appointment, People conducted an interview with the actor, who was very excited to “finally” be on the list that the famous publication began in 1985.
“I’m glad it’s happening at this time in my life. It’s nice to have the recognition, and certainly my ego takes a little hit, but It gives me the platform to use it for something positive.”.
Regarding how he reacted to People’s appointment, Dempsey said he “was shocked,” comparing himself to “the bridesmaid” who had never been able to catch the bouquet until now.
“I was completely shocked, and then I started laughing, like, this is a joke, right? I have always been the bridesmaid. She had completely forgotten and I hadn’t even considered being in this position. So my ego is fine,” the actor confessed with a laugh.
As soon as the news broke, the networks shared their happiness, because for several years now, Patrick has been considered one of the most attractive actors in Hollywood. In any case, many users argue that Dempsey should have been chosen many years ago, when the euphoria for his Dereck Shepherd character was at its peak. Despite this detail, it seems that Dempsey’s fans are very happy with the appointment and consider it something that sooner or later had to happen.
The actor is aware that his years of greatest fame are behind him, but that does not mean that his career is over.
“I already have the stickers, the t-shirts and the posters, Does this mean it has hit its ceiling? I reached the top many years ago. But I’m still here”
Patrick confessed that he already has some detractors against his new “beauty title”: his children Tallulah, Sullivan and Patrick, the result of his marriage to makeup artist Jillian Dempsey. Patrick assured that his children will not miss this opportunity to make fun of him, which he does not consider entirely negative since this family dynamic helps him stay young.
“They’ll just make fun of me and pick on me and look for all the reasons why I shouldn’t be. Which is good, they keep me young.”
Dempsey’s career began in 1985 with the film The StuffSince then, he has been part of almost 40 films and 20 television series. Patrick currently stars in the series Devils in the role of Dominic Morgan, and at the end of 2023 the biographical film will arrive Ferrari where he will play Piero Taruffi, famous formula 1 driver who was active between 1950 and 1956.
