Patrick Dempsey might have some reaction to the recent drama going on outside the operating rooms of Seattle Grace.

But the Grey’s Anatomy actor is too busy shooting an upcoming film (Made of Honor) and raising twins to speak on the recent dismissal of Isaiah Washington or the recent big screen success of Katherine Heigl.

Fortunately, the hottest brain surgeon on TV did have time to speak with Entertainment Tonight. Here are excerpts from that interview:

Isaiah Washington and Patrick Dempsey Together

On the twins, Darby and Sullivan:
“They change. I leave in the morning and come back in the evening and they’ve grown. They’re starting to talk and now there’s some reaction there. They use their faces and hold their heads up a bit.”

On raising children:
“The first year is really hard. The first 18 years are extremely difficult.”

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Just stay strong, Patrick. Follow the advice of Jamie Lee Curtis.

On whether he’d let his kids get into show business:
“I think with your kids, whatever their passion is, you give your support. You give them the opportunity to try what they want to try.”

On his wedding to Jillian Fink Dempsey:
“It was fun. It was just 30 people back in Maine. We had a great time. We put it together in a week and a half or two weeks, it was really fast…The photographers, they got really drunk and gave us one picture from the whole experience. But we gave everyone those instamatic cameras and those were some of the best shots.”

As hot as recent Katharine McPhee photos? We doubt it. But probably nice and celebratory nonetheless.
