Patrick Dempsey Has Pec Envy

Patrick Dempsey Has Pec Envy

Patrick Dempsey talks to Parade about his dreamy good looks, dropping out of high school and pec envy of his Grey’s Anatomy co-star Eric Dane. Here are some of the interview’s highlights:

On being jealous of the bigger and buffer types in Hollywood: “I’m not Eric Dane. McSteamy is in perfect shape. I definitely have pec envy. There’s a lot of pressure being a man in this town.”

On his 1-year-old twin boys, Darby and Sullivan: “It’s like a slapstick routine watching these drunk little men run around because they’re wobbly. (chuckles) When you see something happen that they couldn’t do the day before, it’s really heartwarming.”

On missing the chaos of family life when he’s away: “I was in the gilded cages of all these great hotels, and I just couldn’t figure out why I was so depressed. It was too quiet. I’m used to the noise and the laughter and even the crying.”

On celebrity getting to his head: “It gets very heady, fame. You’ve got to be very careful. I think I’ve been managing that well. This is a great opportunity now to really define the next part of my life. I just want to do it right.”

On dropping out of high school and moving to L.A. for acting. “I was dyslexic, so I never had the skills for school. By listening to books on tape, going to lectures or watching documentaries and finding out how I needed to learn, that’s when my education began. I had a hunger for learning and was constantly seeking to improve myself.”

    Ooooohhhhh Patrick!!!!!!!!!
    ……I am a proper lady and everything but I have to admit that when I see Patrick Dempsey on TV, or pictures of him, I suddenly develop these very physical feelings!! That quiet sexiness of his just does it for me!! ….And to think that I hesitated such a long time to watch GA just because I hate to follow fads and I thought it was going to be just another pretty face. This guy goes beyond being a handsome man…he is just exquisite…
