Patrick Dempsey just mastered the art of saying absolutely nothing AND everything about his personal life while promoting his upcoming film, Bridget Jones’ Baby. The former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star opened up to People Magazine about the reconciliation with his longtime wife, Jillian, saying, “Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of” and “I [learned] to prioritize. Our union has to be the priority. I wasn’t prepared to give up on her and she wasn’t either. We both wanted to fight for it.” Though he did not admit the source of their issues, tabloids have long speculated that Dempsey’s penchant for racing cars took considerable time away from their union, and he has seriously dialed back on the dangerous hobby since mending his marriage.
It’s worth noting that one can talk about his or her personal life without divulging too much, and Dempsey did it beautifully. The television star is also a rare breed of actor who can master both mediums, having had a successful film career prior to his resurgence as “McDreamy.” For more, visit PEOPLE.
