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

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.
