ENCHANTED star PATRICK DEMPSEY is uncomfortable with his status as a sex symbol
– because he thinks he is just “average-looking”.
The actor, who plays a dashing divorce lawyer in the Disney movie, insists his looks don’t match those of Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney – despite being chosen last month (Nov07) as the new face of fashion house Versace.
But self-deprecating Dempsey admits he enjoys the attention lavished on his appearance.
He says, “I always find it funny when people say I am handsome or I am perceived in that way. It makes me wonder whom they are talking to, it’s interesting.
“There are a lot of men out there considered as handsome men: George Clooney is good looking; he is the classical handsome movie star. I am just average looking. But it’s fun and it is certainly nice to have the attention. I was known for being geeky and awkward as a kid. This projection of being sexy or handsome is funny to me; I certainly don’t see myself that way.”
There’s three possibilities here.
A) Is blind.
B) Hasn’t looked in a mirror. ever.
C) Wants to appear to be modest.
Option A isn’t likely considering his ability to move about with ease. Option B is unlikely as well since you can’t really avoid your reflection your whole life. So I’m going with C. Give it up Patrick, you’re hot. Embrace. Tell the world. I want our next story on him to be titled: Dempsey “I Can’t Help Being This Hot”.
Alright maybe that’d be a bit of a turn off. But seriously, he needs to be realistic. He’s not fooling anyone. 🙂
