"We just finalized our agreement," continues Heigl, 31, who played Dr. Izzie Stevens on the ABC medical drama for six seasons. "Everyone had been working really hard to find an amicable and gracious way of letting go and moving on. It's sad but it's what I wanted."

She says she wants more time to focus on her 16-month-old daughter Naleigh, whom she adopted from South Korea with husband Josh Kelley last September.
