Patrick Dempsey on being named Sexiest Man Alive

"I was completely stunned, and then I began laughing, as if this was a joke, right? I've always been a bridesmaid. I'd completely forgotten about it and had never considered myself in this position. So my ego is healthy. I'm glad it's happening now in my life. It's good to be recognized, and my ego certainly takes a hit, but it provides me a platform to use it for something constructive," Dempsey expressed.

Netizens reaction

However, not everyone was pleased with the name and hence flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express their dismay with the decision. "There are more attractive and sexier men than him; perhaps there are pointers." wrote a user. "However, I'd like to know what criteria they use to judge this," a social media user remarked. "I think you accidentally posted a tweet from 2005," another user commented. Many people thought Pedro Pascal deserved the title as well.

Professional front

On the work front, Patrick will appear in Michael Mann's biopic 'Ferrari' which will be released in December. He will be playing Italian Formula One driver Piero Taruffi alongside Adam Driver and Penelope Cruz.
