His piercing eyes? His easy smile? Or maybe just his ability to get down and dirty with his two kids in the family's chicken coop?
Whatever it is, Scott Foley is still wondering what earned him the latest title of PEOPLE's Sexy Man of the Week.
"I was flattered, of course. My wife [Marika] was confused. My publicist was surprised. I never considered myself sexy, but I'll take it!" the Scandal star, 41, jokes to PEOPLE.

It's the baby news heard 'round the world: Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, and while we're excited for the actress, it leaves fans of Scandal scratching their heads about what Washington's bump means for Olivia Pope.
Producer Shonda Rimes has remained mum since Washington's October announcement about whether the pregnancy will be written into the show, but should she choose not to, there's plenty of past precedent to draw from on how to handle a star's changing shape, ranging from the subtle to the downright ridiculous.

In a week that saw Saturday Night Live come under the microscope of The New York Times for the program's lack of diversity, specifically where black women cast members were concerned, the show cold-opened Saturday night with a skit starring guest host Kerry Washington, satirizing the situation – and even culminating with a pre-"Live from New York, It's Saturday Night" announcement from the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"What have we learned from this sketch?" Sharpton said, speaking directly to the camera. "As usual, nothing."
In the course of the sketch, the Scandal star played Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey (rather broadly) but drew the line when the name Beyoncé came up.
But the relevant topic was touched upon head on, although mock-seriously.

Lisa Kudrow has made viewers laugh on Friends, The Comeback and Web Therapy. But as Josephine Marcus on ABC's Scandal, she's got a very serious problem.

We're about one episode away from quitting our jobs, applying to law school and charging a whole bunch of chic pantsuits to our credit cards. Why? Because Olivia Pope (played by the impeccable Kerry Washington, in case you've been living under a rock) continues to rule our living rooms Thursday nights.
In the second episode of Scandal's third season, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?," the political fixer was on her A Game, delivering biting verbal smackdown after biting verbal smackdown. Here are three we're still buzzing about:

When last we left off with Olivia and the Gladiators (side note: awesome band name), they had taken on Jeannine Locke as a client after Mellie and Cyrus released a video of the Vice President's top aide gushing about how "hot" the President is.
This promptly led the public to believe that she's the woman Fitz had an affair with, not Olivia.
In this exclusive clip from the season's second episode, titled "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?," Kerry Washington's Olivia holds a press conference in front of the White House to set the record straight on Jeannine.

Olivia Pope is back, and this time she needs the fixing. Her secret is out. Her business is in danger. Her puppy-dog face is extra pouty. And her clothes ... amazing as ever.
Season 3 of Scandal kicked off Thursday night, and creator Shonda Rhimes did not disappoint, dropping bombshell after bombshell in the fast-paced episode featuring standout performances by Kerry Washington (Pope), Tony Goldwyn (President Fitz) and Bellamy Young (First Lady Mellie). And if you're like everyone on Twitter, you simply ... Can't. Get. Enough. Seriously, is it next Thursday yet?
Until then, let's relive the episode's best scenes:

Kerry Washington seems to be taking fashion cues from her husband.
"The morning after [PEOPLE's Best Dressed] issue was announced, I made sure to come to work in sweats," the Scandal star, 36, told PEOPLE at this week's Saks Fifth Avenue celebration for the show's season 3 premiere.
But they weren't just any old sweats. The show's costume designer Lyn Paolo said the happy newlywed came to set showing some home team spirit.
