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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
