Jessica Capshaw Talks Twitter Photo War With 'Grey's Anatomy' Co-Star Patrick Dempsey
“Grey’s Anatomy” returns with an all new episode this Thursday on ABC, but during her visit to Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday, actress Jessica Capshaw revealed there is some Internet-related drama brewing behind the scenes too.
According to the actress, who plays Dr. Arizona Robbins, she and Patrick Dempsey are involved in an amusing Twitter photo war.
“We got into a Twitter pic war, where literally he was wielding his iPhone like it was a weapon,” Jessica smiled as she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover what’s been going on with Patrick.
Jessica explained that Patrick, who recently joined Twitter, has become fond of posting photos of his cast mates, including her, in less than perfect poses.
“Patrick most likes to take pictures of me in compromising positions,” Jessica explained of the amusing way they’ve been spending their down time on set. “[Like] when you’re in the middle of taking a bite of a muffin, making a sun [squinting] face, doing something that’s just not attractive.”
Now, for all of Twitter to see, there are a host of unapproved photos circulating of Jessica and some of her fellow “Grey’s” co-stars.
“He doesn’t ask us [before posting]. We live in this world where it’s like, it’d be nice if someone said, ‘Hey! I just took this picture, I’m gonna Tweet it now,” she explained.
“That would be nice and courteous. No, it’s not for him. He doesn’t need to do that, evidently,” she continued, with a sarcastic tone. “He just sends. I get back from lunch and I look on the thing and you see people going like, ‘Oh! Saw the picture of you.’ [And I’m like] ‘Doing What?’”
Still, Jessica has gotten her own revenge once or twice on the actor.
“I had two pictures of him. One was flattering, one was not, and I went with the not flattering [one]. Hey, what can I say? It’s war,” she laughed.
“Grey’s Anatomy” returns with a new episode on Thursday, March 15 at 9/8c on ABC.
