Eric Dane has ‘no regrets’ over 2009 nude tape with ex: ‘I wasn’t doing anything wrong’
It seems Eric Dane lives life without regrets.
In an interview with Glamour, the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star, 46, shared his positive outlook on a naked video of himself, actress Rebecca Gayheart and another woman in a bathtub that was leaked in 2009.
“Was it a mistake? Absolutely not. Three consenting adults, one of them being my wife? I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said. “We were just three people taking a bath… I didn’t regret it. I have no regrets nor do I make any apologies for my life experience. It’s my life experience and I am at peace with all of it.”
His comments are a positive update from his first statement about the video.
In 2014, he told People, “We’ve all made mistakes. My one regret is that I got the person I love most wrapped up in all that: Rebecca.”
Of his previous comment, he clarified to Glamour, “I was most likely referring to the drug use that was alluded to in the video, and was that a mistake? Again, I don’t necessarily think I was breaking any laws and corrupting anybody.”
Gayheart, 47, filed for divorce from Dane in 2018 after 14 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
“After 14 years together we have decided that ending our marriage is the best decision for our family,” Gayheart and Dane told USA TODAY in a joint statement at the time. “We will continue our friendship and work as a team to co-parent our two beautiful girls as they are the most important thing in the world to us. We kindly ask that you respect our privacy during this time as we navigate the next phase of our lives.”
Gayheart and Dane share daughters Billie, 9, and Georgia, 7.
