Patrick Dempsey says his children will 'figure out every reason why' he should not be the 'Sexiest Man Alive'

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Patrick Dempsey opened up about the blend of excitement in his family and, surprisingly, some discontent among his own circle of friends after he was crowned People's 2023 'Sexiest Man Alive.'

At the recent Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix, the 'Grey's Anatomy' alum spoke to about how people responded to the announcement of his title.

"I didn't realize how close the competition was and how many people finished second and how many people were overlooked, and then how many people were mad I got it," he said.

Dempsey now joins the prestigious list of previous Sexiest Man Alive winners and fellow actors, including Michael B Jordan, Paul Rudd, and Chris Evans.

Patrick Dempsey is 'happy to be in the game'

Dempsey shared that he is currently enjoying his moment after he won the title. "I'm just happy to be in the game at this point in my life, so it's good. I’m having a good time. I'm enjoying my moment," he said.
