Patrick Dempsey Says He Left 'Grey's Anatomy' on Good Terms With Shonda Rhimes & His Co-Stars

Patrick Dempsey is opening up more about his shocking exit from Grey’s Anatomy after 11 seasons on the show.

Here’s what the 49-year-old actor had to share with EW:

On whether his divorce affected his work: “You’re a professional. You leave your personal life at the door. I’m not going to talk about my home life as part of show.”

On watching the final episode: “I haven’t watched an episode this year at all. I don’t watch it. In the past for a while, I don’t enjoy watching myself. That’s not something I prefer doing.”

On whether he left on good terms with the cast: “I think so, yes.”

With creator Shonda Rhimes: “Yes.”

With Ellen Pompeo: “Very good.”

    Why would you even ask him about his home life??? That is just wrong on so many levels.

    I am so done with Grey’s. He was my favourite character. Shonda Rhimes blew up everything. So disappointed !

    Those answers… PR 101.

    I watched it once when my computer was in for repair over a weekend and found it a very confusing show to follow. I guess you have to watch it on a regular basis to “get it”.

    I too am done with watching Grey’s. I have Netflix and I have a few times rewatched it from S1, and had just started to do it yet again when this came about. I will no longer watch the show, it will never be the same. Bad move for the t.v. network!

    I’m done with Grey’s I started watching the first season because of Maradeth and Derek. To have him fired because of his personal life is unexcusable. People in the real world go on with their lives even with indiscretions such as these and their employers don’t get involved. I will no longer watch Grey’s Anatomy as I feel too many character’s have left that I loved, starting with George ending with Derek. Bad move Shondra Rhimes should have let Patrick and his wife figure this out on their own. X-viewer

    If this is true then Shonda has list her Damn mind, since when is ok to fire somebody because of there personal life. As long a a person shows up and does there job it’s none of her or Ellen’s business. I stop watching a few seasons back
