    US EXCLUSIVE! Eric Dane "Mortified" by Cancer Claim
    Wednesday February 13, 2008


    Eric Dane arrives at GQ Celebrates 2007 "Men Of The Year" on December 5, 2007 in Hollywood, California.

    Eric Dane's "fight against cancer" was not nearly as dramatic as it sounds.

    OK! magazine's cover story of their February 18 issue sensationalized the fact that the Grey's Anatomy actor, 35, had some malignant cells on his lip frozen off with liquid nitrogen in a doctor's office.

    "Eric Dane does not have cancer," his rep tells Us Weekly in its latest issue, on newsstands now. "He spoke with OK! to clear up some inaccuracies they were planning to run. His story certainly does not compare with those actually suffering from the disease."

    Dane, a source tells Us was "mortified" by the cover. "Never in a million years would he have expected they would exploit his story," says the source. "He's considering legal action."

    (A rep for OK! tells Us, "OK! has not been contacted about legal action.)

    This isn't the first time OK! has been wrong. Last month, Jessica Simpson's lawyers sent a strongly-worded letter demanding a retraction for an article claiming beau Tony Romo dumped her because she was high-maintenance. "That rag completely fabricated and made up this story," rep Cindi Berger told Usmagazine.com.

    In Touch, Life & Style, and Star have also reported fake news in their recent issues.

    Why is OK! even still in existence? They never get shit right, and its abundantly clear that they pay for the very few inside scoops that they have.

    either way, thats totally shitty of them to turn it into "ZOMG HE HAS CANCER!" just for sales.

    I think Eric Dane is FULL OF SHIT.
    Clearly he got paid to talk about having cancer, and his "people" probably brought it to the mags' attention just to exploit the situation for fame. The mag underestimated the intelligence of the public, therefore humiliating Dane with his obvious grab at pity and attention.

    Who cares? He's such a blah boring actor. I saw him in some dumb movie where he takes off his clothes. You would think that might be interesting, but it wasn't. He's as blah and boring as his run over a kid wife. I think it's because he's dumb. I have nothing to back that up. He might be a genius. He just translates as dumb to me. McDreamy while not as hot, not dumb. ::Shrug::

    I'm pretty sure OK openly admitted to paying all the celebs (who make the cover) a hefty sum of money to give an "exclusive" story.
