Sandra Oh, Alexander Payne Officially Divorce

by at . Comments

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)

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.
