Dempsey Devastated By 10-Year Career Drought

Actor PATRICK DEMPSEY was wracked with insecurity before landing the role of DR DEREK SHEPHERD in TV series GREY'S ANATOMY - because he had been out of work for a decade.

After starring in hit films in the 1980's such as CAN'T BUY ME LOVE, the actor's career slumped.

Dempsey explains, "I'm ugly, I'm untalented, I'm no good, I'm a has-been.

"It's like (bleep), what happened to me? I used to be me."

The actor even stopped going to movies because he was too upset about not being able to land a role in any films.

He adds, "I'd come in (to movies) with this bitter attitude. It's not an escape, because I feel this disappointment, this jealousy."
