"I think friends can become lovers like that, that’s possible too," the 46-year-old actor recently told Entertainment Tonight.

"They have been friends a long time, though. Alex and [Meredith] have come up together and I don’t know, [it’d be] a little weird, but anything is possible," he added.
Ellen Pompeo — who portrays main character Meredith on Grey's Anatomy — similarly opened up about a "Merlex" relationship in a recent interview. "Justin is one of my favorite people on the planet," the 47-year-old actress said.

"We're really close, and it does feel weird. To potentially maybe have him as a love interest would be like kissing my brother. I used to say that about Patrick Dempsey all the time too because just we'd been [working] together for so long," Ellen continued.

"The love interest part is not my favorite piece of this, I'll be honest," she added. "Kissing guys that aren't your husband is, you know, a little weird. I guess it wouldn't be if you didn't like your husband, but I happen to be very, very fond of mine."
