10 Photos That Prove Patrick Dempsey Only Gets Hotter With Age

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday, McDreamy! Patrick Dempsey turns 50 today and we have to say, he's really never looked better.

We've watched the silver fox for decades, as he's grown from a young heartthrob in the '80s hit, "Can't Buy Me Love," to his best-known role as a more mature Dr. Derek Shepherd on the hit TV series, "Grey's Anatomy." He's always been a talented actor, no doubt, but we have to say, he's only gotten easier on the eyes with each passing year. And we think a touch of silver in his hair hasn't hurt his sex appeal.

Dempsey looks ageless as ever and just to prove that 50 is going to be his best year yet, we've dug up some of his best looks from the past to show he really is getting better age.
