McDreamy's Misstep On The Emmy Red Carpet

LOS ANGELES (August 27, 2006) — “Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey drew the biggest cheers from fans watching prime-time stars arrive for the Emmys.

Known as “Dr. McDreamy,” Dempsey took a moment to jump the ropes and sign a few autographs for fans sitting in the bleachers along the red carpet.

But Dempsey wasn’t all Mr. McSmoothy: At one point he stepped on the dress of a woman standing nearby. After apologizing, he told reporters, “These are the things that matter in life-- not stepping on a woman’s dress.”
