Sad face. Katherine Heigl feels for former Grey’s Anatomy costar Patrick Dempsey. The State of Affairs star told Extra during an interview on Thursday, Jan. 29 that she thinks it’s “really sad” McDreamy and his wife of 15 years Jillian Fink have called it quits on their marriage.

"I think it's always hard to have to go through something like that so publicly," Heigl, who starred on Grey’s Anatomy with Dempsey for 5 years, told Extra. “[They’re] both really great people.”

While Dempsey deals with his divorce, Heigl couldn’t be happier with her 7-year marriage to Josh Kelley.

"I was so incredibly drawn to, attracted to this man from the get-go, from the moment I met him," Heigl gushed of her hubby. "You just find this groove with each other."

"[Josh] is literally one of my favorite people in the world to hang out with," she added of Kelley, whom she shares adopted daughters Naleigh, 6, and Adalaide, 2, with. "I can never see myself falling out of love with him."
