Katherine Heigl and Patrick Dempsey haven’t worked together in nearly five years, but that isn’t stopping the actress from voicing her opinion on her former costar’s recent divorce.
The blonde beauty — who starred on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ with Patrick — said, “It’s really sad. I think it’s always hard to have to go through something like that so publicly.”
Patrick, 49, and his wife, Jillian Fink, announced they were separating after 15 years of marriage on Jan. 23. The couple have three children — daughter Talula, 12, and twins Sullivan and Darby, 7 — together.

“[The split] was a long time coming,” a source close to the couple told ‘People.’ “They were never going to make it work, but they tried.”
While the ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ actor’s relationship is sadly ending, Katherine, 36, insisted she and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, are still in wedded bliss after seven years of marriage.

“I was so incredibly drawn to, attracted to this man from the get-go, from the moment I met him. You just find this groove with each other,” said the ‘State of Affairs’ star, who is mom to Naleigh, 6, and Adalaide, 3 with Josh, 35.
“I can never see myself falling out of love with [Josh],” she told ‘Extra.’
