They may not be doctors in real life, but these smoldering stars sure do look good as they play them on TV. They may not actually have their PhD, but we wouldn't mind George Clooney or Patrick Dempsey operating on us!
I've always been attracted to Irish guys. I don't know if it's because we share a heritage or the fact that we can drink green beer for green beer on St. Patrick's Day – all I know is the natural charm Irish lads have really gets me going!
While there are some sad cases of the badly aged, celebrities tend to hold onto their looks—and whether that's a result of good genes, great skin regimens or surgical intervention is a debate for another time. Plenty of aging stars "still have it" and some look nearly as good as they did back in the day. But what about those freaks of nature who actually look better than when they were fresh-faced and just starting out in the biz? They deserve a shout-out...so here are six who top our list.
Six seasons into Grey's Anatomy and Patrick Dempsey—aka Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd—still makes fans' hearts skip a little as he performs brain surgery within the walls of the show's Seattle Grace Hospital. The actor, 44, dons a dashing doctor's coat again in the movie Valentine's Day, a comic homage to amore that stars an ensemble cast, including Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway. Without the stethoscope, though, McDreamy is more McDude, a family man (he and his wife, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, have a daughter, Talula, eight, and three-year-old twin sons, Darby and Sullivan) with a low-key approach to romance and a serious passion for … auto racing? Luckily, that's only one of the things that rev his engine. Here, he confides a few more.
The Telegraph reported that in a study carried out by psychologists at Northumbria University in Britain, women were found to rate men with stubble as, "tough, mature, aggressive, dominant, and masculine – and as the best romantic partners, either for a fling or a long-term relationship."Read: Stubble: The Best of Both Worlds But this study only asked women about men who shave their faces clean of hair (or the ones can't grow any hair to begin with), the rugged man who always has a little bit of stubble and guys who sport full-on beards. It left out one of the most important facial features a man can create, style and show off: the mustache. Given the options the study provided, it's no surprise females preferred men who groom their faces to resemble the hottest TV hunks like Matthew Fox (Jack) and Josh Holloway (Sawyer) from Lost and Patrick Dempsey (McDreamy) from Grey's Anatomy.
Grey's Anatomy has had its share of engagements, almost-weddings, marriages, divorces, affairs and everything in between, but after the engagement that we'd all been waiting for, a date has finally been set for the wedding we thought would never happen. After all of their hook-ups, break-ups, fights and even a partial-death, Meredith Grey finally has a ring, although it's not yet on her finger (she just carries it around), from Derek Shepherd, and the two will wed on May 14… a Thursday. MerDer, played by Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, have a real-life wedding website at theknot.com "set up" by Dr. Izzie Stevens, that is replete with photos, the couple's story, even a gift registry. Show creator Shonda Rhime's said in an interview with USA Today, "I said, 'it should feel like a real wedding website.'"
A man in China recently decided to hire a coworker to pose as his girlfriend for a Chinese New Year celebration with his parents. Things went well. Too well. She was given about $650 in good luck gifts. And he wanted to return them. She thought she earned them. All of this could have been avoided if these two would have only watched a few American comedies about purchasing some love.
