Katherine Heigl Once Had a Thing For T.R. Knight

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl was shocked to find out her co-star T.R Knight was gay - because she had spent the show's pilot flirting with him.

The Knocked Up actress, who married singer Josh Kelley (below) last December, was a single gal when shooting began on the hit medical drama in 2005.

That said, a handsome co-star caught her eye.

The actress' romantic plans didn't going anyway - her lustful looks were ignored as it turned out T.R. Knight (dating Mark Cornelsen at present) is gay. She says:

"When we were filming the pilot I was single and so was he and I kind of had my eye on him. I was getting nowhere and I was super-confused. I was like, 'Hello? Do I have something hanging out of my nose? Why aren't you paying any attention to me? Needless to say, it quickly became a friendship once he told me."

Mr. & Mrs. Kelley

Funny stuff. In the end, it all worked out, as Katherine Heigl ended up with a great husband in Josh Kelley and a best friend (on and off the show) in T.R. Knight.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
