Some people only get better with time, which couldn’t be more true for our beloved Patrick Dempsey. While many people are familiar with his iconic performance as Dr. Derek Shepherd, aka McDreamy in Grey’s Anatomy, he’s also acted in a couple of watch-worthy films.

I recently had the pleasure to watch "Made of Honor", and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Not to mention that I’ve been Dempsey’s fan since he starred on Freedom Writers. But to name a few of his best performances thus far, here are some McDreamy starrers you should totally watch!

Enchanted

Dempsey starred as Robert, a divorce attorney, in the 2007 Disney live-action fairytale, alongside Amy Adams as Princess Giselle. An evil queen sends Giselle out of Andalasia, so she cannot marry her son, Prince Edward.

Giselle then finds herself on the streets of New York, where Robert and his young daughter ultimately rescue her. The two eventually fall in love, fighting all odds stacked against them to find their happily ever after.

Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman

A lesser-known fact about our beloved McDreamy is that he’s a race car driver. He shares his sheer enthusiasm and incessant love for sports cars and racing in the 2015 sports documentary about Paul Newman’s car racing career.

Made Of Honor
