Chambers, Karev Are Polar Opposites

at . Comments

Nothing gets the ladies talking like a hot, single guy on a popular TV show. But what are the actors who play them actually like in real life?

Dr. Alex Karev
In an effort to answer that, profiled 10 of TV's most eligible bachelors to find out how their characters stack up in the dating world... especially compared to themselves. One of the characters profiled was none other than Dr. Alex Karev of Grey's Anatomy.

It may surprise you to learn that the macho intern played by Justin Chambers bears little resemblance to the actor. Chambers, 35, has been married to wife Keisha for more than 12 years and has five children.

Even in his single days, Chambers says he was "a little more secure with himself. [Alex] is a little more insecure, and hides it with bravado."

Very interesting stuff, and proof that Chambers is a talented actor. He sure makes a convincing insecure jackass on TV! Other TV bachelors profiled on the site were James Denton, who plays plumber/vigilante Mike Delfino on the popular Grey's Anatomy lead-in, Desperate Housewives, and Barry Watson of What About Brian. Both are also married. Sorry, ladies.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


If I did my job well, it's not because people listened to me. It's because they believed in me. Believed that I knew them well enough and believed in them enough to tell them how and when to use their brilliance.
