“I didn’t realize how close the competition was and how many people finished second and how many people were overlooked, and then how many people were mad I got it,” he said.

Dempsey now joins the prestigious list of previous Sexiest Man Alive winners and fellow actors, including Michael B Jordan, Paul Rudd, and Chris Evans.

“I was completely shocked, and then I started laughing, like, this is a joke, right? I’ve always been the bridesmaid!,” the 57-year-old actor laughed while talking to People.

“I’d completely forgotten about it and never even contemplated being in this position. So my ego is good,” he added.

“I’m glad it’s happening at this point in my life. It’s nice to have the recognition, and certainly my ego takes a little bump, but it gives me the platform to use it for something positive,” Dempsey stated.
