Eric Dane Not OK! With Cancer Story

by at . Comments

The "fight against cancer" Eric Dane reportedly went through was not nearly as bad or dramatic as it sounded in OK! Magazine, the actor's rep said.

The OK! Magazine cover story in its February 18 issue sensationalized the fact that the Grey's Anatomy star, 35, was diagnosed with skin cancer and had malignant cells on his lip frozen off with liquid nitrogen in a doctor's office recently.

"Eric Dane does not have cancer," his rep told Us Weekly.

"He spoke with OK! to clear up inaccuracies they were planning to run. His story certainly does not compare to those actually suffering from the disease."

Eric Dane is Fine

The actor who plays Mark Sloan (a.k.a. McSteamy) on Grey's Anatomy was reportedly mortified by the cover of the celebrity news magazine.

"Never in a million years would he have expected they would exploit his story," says the rep. "He's considering legal action."

Let this be a lesson to us all not to trust OK! Magazine.

In other news, thank goodness the writers' strike is officially over. Can we have some new Grey's Anatomy episodes already, for crying out loud?

Phew. And now I know not to trust OK! Magazine. Never have, and definitely never will now. And yay for the writer's strike being over. Having something to look forward to now. I want McSteamy to steam up the screen again and McDreamy and Mer back to the awesome couple they used to be. Seriously.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.

Meredith

Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
