McDreamy Goes Belly Up

McDreamy Goes Belly Up

Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy‘s Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd) is this week’s coverboy for Life Magazine‘s latest issue. Here are a couple of choice quotes:

  • On fatherhood: “Now making money is about providing for my children. And being a father makes you look at yourself. You look at your marriage and go, ‘How do I improve this? How do I keep growing and create a stable environment for my children?’”
  • About tensions on the set of Grey’s Anatomy: “I was talking [on the phone] to Grey’s executive producer Mark Gordon’s office. I honestly didn’t know that everybody was ready. It could have been dealt with. Say “Hey, I have a problem with you coming late to the set.” There was some insecurity about a lot of things that were happening, and it came out inappropriately. We discussed it and were ready to move on. Then it broke on a national level… What we learned as a cast is that we really need to take care of ourselves, communicate with one another. You’re there 15, 16 hours a day. You’re not going to be Mr. Nice Guy or Mrs. Nice Lady all the time.”
  • On buying a home in Maine: “When I did it, I felt a huge shift in my psyche. I got the keys, and I walked through the empty house and thought, If it all goes to hell, I have a place to live. It gives you peace of mind. I was like, ‘Wow, I’ve come a long way.’”
  • On auditioning alongside Ellen Pompeo: “They didn’t offer me the part. I got it because Rob Lowe turned it down. But first I had to test with her, so she had all the cards. She was very attentive during my audition, and I felt . . . welcomed. Also, she had a Boston accent, and I’m from Maine. I found that endearing.”

    Love him, love him! His hair is the most beautiful hair I’ve ever seen on a man!

  • HOTTEST COUPLE EVER

    I don’t get it. I agree with Kelly’s eye doctor.

  • kelly

    This isn’t a brad pitt thread i was just simply expressing my opinion, that i find him much more attractive than him you dont have to agree with it

  • !

    If it’s not a Brad thread, why did you purposely bring him into the conversation? There are plenty of hot guys you could have compared Patrick to. Stop feigining the innocent act.

  • kelly

    you make me sound like some trouble maker i mentioned him because lets face it the majority of women think he’s the sexiest man alive thats why i dropped his name (symbolism get it?) & im not innocent anything but but don’t be a bitch over something so trivial just not worth it .

  • oooooooh

    Wow he sounds normal and nice.
    I agree McDreamy is way hotter than Pitt and um faithful to his wife!!

  • CLINIQUA

    # 9, I have a feeling this guy could be faithful to my pet goat, after seeing the 98 year old woman he used to be married to. Something is not right. Creeps. me. out.

    Oh, and I thought he had his head pressed up against somebody’s
    big ol’ massive a ss in the first pic.
