Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey plays a single guy looking to win over his bridal best friend in Made of Honor, which hits theaters May 2.

"I love romance, absolutely," the self-confessed serial monogamist tells Mary. But the Grey's Anatomy leading man, who has been married for eight years, admits that the marriage proposal to his wife, Jillian Dempsey, was done "poorly."

"We just bought this house and we were in the middle of remodeling it and the kitchen was a mess," the man we love as McDreamy told Entertainment Tonight.

"I kept giving her this line where I had to find the right ring. I finally found it while she was gone and I couldn't wait ... so I popped the question in the kitchen."

In Made of Honor, Patrick Dempsey plays a serial dater who decides he wants to settle down just as his best platonic friend, played by Michelle Monaghan, decides to tie the knot. Patrick's character then accepts her invitation to be her "maid" of honor as part of his master plan to woo her for himself.

Dempsey also talked about his three children, and how he is excited to go back to work on the 4-5 new episodes of Grey's Anatomy to air this spring. He's been in touch with Ellen Pompeo a few times since production shut down late last year.
