I know it has nothing to do with Grey's Anatomy, but he does play a sleazy womanizer plastic surgeon on the ABC medical drama. Little did his fans know he was as frisky in real life.
Eric Dane, who plays Mark Sloan or McSteamy on Grey's Anatomy, recently became the latest victim of an alleged sex tape scandal, when a video featuring him, his wife of five years, and another woman somehow found its way to the Internet.
The 12-minute long recording allegedly (because I have not seen it myself) had Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart, and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche in bed intoxicated at Peniche's apartment. Everybody, of course, was butt naked.
A little context: on Grey's Anatomy
, Dane plays a man who at one point triggered a hospital-wide nurses' strike because he'd slept with practically all of them. Before becoming a supposedly reformed man thanks to Lexie (Chrysler Leigh), McSteamy had a sort of permanent buddy with benefits in Callie (Sarah Ramirez) before she inexplicably became lesbian.
Dane's lawyer insisted that the tape isn't a sex tape, but "a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public."
In Peniche's defense, her lawyer explained that, "it's guys having fun, hanging out together. There is no sex involved in this."
