Patrick Dempsey just snagged the title of PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive for 2023, and he's over the moon about it! At 57, he's rocking the recognition, and while he jokes about always being the bridesmaid, he's using this spotlight for some positive vibes. The Ferrari star hopes this title shines a light on the Dempsey Center, a foundation he founded in honor of his mom. The center does awesome work supporting cancer patients and their loved ones.

When Patrick Dempsey joined Jimmy Kimmel, the burning question was why it took so long for him to snag the Sexiest Man Alive title. With a smile, Dempsey simply expressed his happiness about the decision finally landing on him this year, saying, “I don’t know, I’m just happy they made a decision and it’s me this year,... I’m very grateful.” 
Kimmel, always ready with the humor, pointed out that Dempsey had some near misses—twice ending up in small boxes on the Sexiest Man Alive issue, once next to George Clooney and once next to "vomit face" (aka Matt Damon). Third time's the charm, and Dempsey's gratitude is contagious!

Social media exploded with joy as viewers celebrated Patrick Dempsey clinching the Sexiest Man Alive title, a long-awaited triumph after years of almost and undeniable success. One fan commented, “I have been in love with Patrick Dempsey since I was a kid. He’s finally the Sexiest Man.” Many agreed with this opinion and said that Patrick deserved this honor.
Meanwhile, others thought that the timing was a decade or so off, and some were just hoping for someone else, with Pedro Pascal’s name being the most common along with others like Jason Kelce and Oscar Isaac.

Pedro Pascal definitely deserves it, this was his year!” while another claimed that Jason Kelce was robbed.
