The American actor looks stunning at 57
Last year, Chris Evans was hailed People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive of 2022. This year, Patrick Dempsey was awarded the covetable title.
You may know Patrick as Dr. McDreamy, a.k.a. Dr. Derek Shepherd, from one of the most popular television series of all time, “Grey’s Anatomy.” Some may remember him as Robert in the enchanting film with Amy Adams, “Enchanted,” and its sequel, “Disenchanted.”
Now, you can officially recognize him as one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive.
“I’m just happy they made the decision, and it was me this year. I’m very grateful,” shared Patrick in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.
During the show, Jimmy also revealed the coincidence when photos of Patrick appeared on the cover of People Magazine when the title was awarded to George Clooney back in 2006 and when Matt Damon got the title the year after, calling it foreshadowing.

In another interview with the magazine, Patrick joked that he would be holding the title for 10 years, and no other man would ever be awarded after him.
“I don’t know why there should be anybody after me, to be honest with you,” joked Patrick. “So this is it. This is the end of it. It’s been a great run for People, and congratulations. I’m glad I could finish it all for you.”
To show support for her hubby, Jillian Dempsey, Patrick’s wife, did his makeup for the magazine shoot. She handled his skin prep as well as his hair, which she revealed she’s been doing for decades.
One of the products Jillian used on Patrick’s hair is from her haircare line called Roadie, a hair pomade designed to give hair that tousled and textured look, which happens to be one of Patrick’s signature style.
