One of the most prominent members of the Grey's Anatomy cast, Sandra Oh, has finalized her divorce with Sideways writer-director Alexander Payne.

Oh, 36, and Payne, 46, were in a relationship for five years, including two years of marriage. They married on January 1, 2003 and separated in 2005.

Although their marital status officially ended on December 22, the former couple took more than two years to settle their finances.

In March 2005, a spokeswoman for the actress confirmed that Sandra Oh and Alexander Payne had "mutually decided to separate."

Added the rep: "They have been together for five years and were married in [January] 2003. The couple will remain friends."

Sandra Oh filed for divorce the following month in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to her filing, the Grey's Anatomy star was seeking spousal support. In his divorce response, Payne sought to deny those payments.

It was the first marriage for both; they had no children together.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
