Justin Chambers is “very excited” for the for the next chapter of his life following news that he’s leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” after 15 years.
The 49-year-old actor, who was spotted outside Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, Calif., on Monday, said he’s looking forward to “life, family, love and friendship.”
Hours after the exit news broke on Friday, Page Six exclusively reported Chambers had been addressing some mental health issues at Privé-Swiss in Connecticut, a luxury facility where both Selena Gomez and Kit Harington have spent time.
When asked whether it’s true if he’d spent time at Privé-Swiss, he responded, “Maybe,” before quickly changing the topic. “Anyways, ‘Grey’s’ has been very supportive of me and I’m very grateful and it’s been a great ride.”
He also said leaving the ABC series, in which he’s played Alex Karev since Season 1, was emotional for him.
“Of course, anywhere that you spend 15 years, it’s a big chunk of your life,” he said.
Chambers revealed that while he’s taking things “one day at a time,” he is hoping to get into producing documentaries in the future.
Last week, a source told Page Six, “Justin was at Privé-Swiss being treated for stress, depression and life-coaching. There is a lot going on with [‘Grey’s Anatomy’] behind-the-scenes right now.”
Chambers flew back to Los Angeles last Wednesday.
