Actresses Mend Fences Over Grey's

Brooke Shields: Big Grey's Anatomy Fan!
There's nothing like Patrick Dempsey to bring two girls together.

Brooke Shields (right) is now saying she has a new TV pal, and it's the fiancée of the man who once criticized her for taking antidepressants.

Shields, 41, told ABC news that she's "absolutely" friends with 27-year-old former Dawson's Creek star Katie Holmes, who is currently planning her wedding to Tom Cruise in Italy. The two bonded over Grey's Anatomy and have gone on to be good friends.

Though separated by 14 years, the two actresses have more in common than just a fondness for hot TV doctors. Seven months ago, they gave birth on the same day at the same hospital. Shields' second daughter, Grier, and Holmes' first child, Suri, share an April 18 birthday.

"Life is really short," Shields said. "And when you see these babies … I think you never know how life is going to bring people together, and it can be absurd and it can be interesting."

Several weeks ago, however, Shields acknowledged that she and Cruise buried the hatchet, and that he had apologized to her.

Not only have they let bygones be bygones, she now confirms that she and Holmes get together to watch Grey's Anatomy.

"It's true. There were a bunch of us here and we were insane about it, and you weren't allowed to speak or talk," said Shields. "Everyone was in my living room and [I] got this new TV... I love them, the acting is so great and it's such a good soap opera -- love it, it's fun."

Amen, Brooke. Amen to that.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
