Dempsey's Clinton Apology
Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has apologized to U.S. politician Hillary Clinton for jokes made at her expense in his recent movie Made of Honor.
The film opened with a gag about Clinton's husband Bill's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky and the actor insists he felt uncomfortable about the scene - because he knew the New York senator is a fan of his work. And Dempsey even tried to persuade the film's director to cut the jokes from the picture.
He says, "I felt quite bad and wanted to speak to Hillary about it, knowing that she's a huge fan of (TV show) Grey's Anatomy and has been going to see my movies since day one, but I just didn't have the heart. So I want to say, 'I'm sorry Hillary that I didn't warn you about what was going to happen. I tried to get the scenes cut, only I didn't win the battle.'" (LR/OK/KL)
