T.R. Knight

Former “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star T.R. Knight was essentially forced to come out publicly in 2006 following an on-set spat between Patrick Dempsey and Isaiah Washington, during which Washington allegedly called Knight a f***ot. Once news of this verbal assault made the rounds, Knight issued a statement via People magazine that read as follows: “I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there. While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me.”
