We know McDreamy inside and out — OK, in retrospect, that sounds weird — but what about the actor underneath all that well-coiffed hair? Patrick Dempsey took a break from his racing at Daytona on January 24 to answer fan questions on Twitter, and here are his surprising responses. (Who knew he was such a big fan of chick flicks?)

  1. What's his favorite food? "Sushi."

  2. What's his favorite color? "Black."

  3. Does he give nicknames to cars? "Last [year's] car was Petula."

  4. What's his favorite movie? "Great Expectations."

  5. What's the bigger rush: a perfect take with tricky dialogue or finishing a race? "Winning a race!"

  6. What does he like best about filming Racing Le Mans? "I love the racing archival footage."

  7. What's his favorite baseball team? "Red Socks." [Editor's note: Autocorrect fail?]

  8. What's his dream car? "Porsche 918."

  9. Does he enjoy working with Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey)? "Love working with Ellen!"

  10. What does he think about Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres)? "Love her sense of humor!"

  11. Has he been to Sweden? "I have! Stockholm."

  12. Who's his favorite singer? "Whatever is playing on [Los Angeles public radio station] KCRW."

  13. Does he style his own hair or is it just always that perfect? "You mean this hair? [Co-driver Joe Foster] does it race day."

Now that's a look! Well, you gotta love the guy's sense of humor (Grey's hair and makeup team, stat!)
