Matt Damon has topped a new poll to be named the Sexiest Man Alive.
The Bourne Ultimatum star, 37, beat Grey's Anatomy hunk Patrick Dempsey - who is nicknamed Doctor McDreamy on the hit medical series - and Blade: Trinity actor Ryan Reynolds to pole position on the annual People magazine hotlist.
The title will be a welcome accolade for Damon - he recently revealed it has been his longtime ambition to beat pal George Clooney - a frequent entrant in such surveys - to the coveted number one spot.
But married Damon, who became a first-time father earlier this year (07), remains coy about his win. He tells People, "You've given an aging suburban dad the ego-boost of a lifetime."
The magazine cites Damon's "irresistible sense of humour", "rock solid family man" and "heart-melting humility" for landing him the title.
The top 10 Sexiest Men are as follows:
1. Matt Damon
2. Patrick Dempsey
3. Ryan Reynolds
4. Brad Pitt
5. James McAvoy
6. Johnny Depp
7. Dave Annable
8. Will Smith
9. Javier Bardem
10. Shamar Moore. (MT/WNWCPL)
