During her guest appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk Facebook Watch series, the 49-year-old actress revealed that she hasn’t spoken to her former onscreen lover, Patrick Dempsey, since his “Grey’s Anatomy” exit in 2015.
“We haven’t spoken since he’s left the show,” said Pompeo, who portrays Dr. Meredith Grey on the popular ABC series. “I have no hard feelings toward him. He’s a wonderful actor, and we made the best TV you can make together.”
“That’s a talented man right there. He did 11 amazing years,” she continued. “Typically, when people leave the show, they need to sort of find themselves, who they are without the show, because the show takes up so much of your life. You need that time to figure out who you are without the show, so, we have not spoken, but I will always have a place in my heart for Patrick.”
