In a world where the Sexiest Man Alive title is bestowed upon a lucky individual, 2023 brings us a winner who’s so McDreamy that even sandpaper would be envious of his smooth charm!
The grand revelation occurred on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with all the pomp and glamour of a royal coronation, except this time, it was all about revealing the dashing Patrick Dempsey as the chosen one. Picture Jimmy Kimmel dressed as a herald, announcing, “Hear ye, hear ye! We bestow upon thee, the one and only Patrick Dempsey, the title of Sexiest Man Alive!” (Cue confetti cannons and a majestic crown made of hair gel).
Now, Patrick, who is no spring chicken at the ripe age of 57, graciously accepted his newfound status, but not without a sense of humor. “I’m glad it’s happening at this point in my life,” he mused in his cover story, probably thinking, “Better late than never, right?” And let’s not forget the ego boost – it’s like someone inflated his self-esteem with a bicycle pump! He said, “It’s nice to have the recognition, and certainly my ego takes a little bump.” Yep, more like an ego bungee jump.
As for his initial reaction to the news, it was a delightful mix of shock and disbelief. “I was completely shocked, and then I started laughing, like, this is a joke, right? I’ve always been the bridesmaid!” he confessed. Yes, even McDreamy can’t escape the dreaded role of the perpetual bridesmaid in the game of Sexiest Man Alive.
Let’s not forget the familial unit – Patrick and his wife, Jillian, have been hitched since the stone age (1999, to be precise) and have spawned three offspring, including a daughter named Talula (who’s old enough to legally enjoy a glass of wine) and 16-year-old twin sons, Sullivan and Darby. You can just imagine the scene at the Dempsey dinner table, where they’re all giggling and poking fun at their newly-crowned Sexiest Man Alive. It’s a good thing, though, because as Patrick put it, “they keep me young.” It’s all fun and games until dad starts wearing leather jackets and quoting Shakespeare in the living room.
But what’s next for our Sexiest Man Alive? Well, he’s not just a pretty face; he’s also a talented actor! Patrick is set to grace the silver screen in the upcoming movie “Ferrari,” hitting theaters on Christmas Day. If he revs our engines as much as he did to the folks at People magazine, it’s going to be a must-see. So, mark your calendars and prepare to witness the Sexiest Man Alive’s triumphant return to the big screen. Who knows, maybe he’ll even drive a Ferrari. Sexy car for a sexy guy, right?
