With his piercing blue eyes and perfectly coiffed hair, he single-handedly started a whole McSexy craze. Coming in at number nine, McDreamy himself — Patrick Dempsey.Whether he’s rugged guy, racing cars or dressed to the nines, no one captures our hearts more than “Grey’s Anatomy’s” hot doc, McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey,So what makes the ladies swoon over this sexy neurosurgeon? We think it’s all about Patrick’s hair.“I cant believe how much time I talk about my hair that’s why I wear a hat,” Patrick previously told Access Hollywood. “Take off the hat,” we suggested while interviewing him.“No! I have no product in it so I feel vulnerable and naked,” he replied.Wishful thinking ladies, but as we found out from his colleagues, Patrick’s allure goes beyond the smoldering coif and Marlboro looks.“Girls ask me ‘what’s he like? What’s he like?’ What they melt over is that he is an amazing husband and father. He breaks my heart. They are the light of his life and that really makes him dreamier,” Dempsey’s co-star Ellen Pompeo told Access.
