On September 20, Grey's Anatomy star Scott Foley commented on his brief marriage to Love Simon star Jennifer Garner on SiriusXM's Andy Cohen Live show.

The 49-year-old star further added,

"We were together for a total of about five years...I downplay that because my wife's right behind me."

He iterated,

"We're speaking about this with my current wife behind me and she's laughing. She's really enjoying the squirming that I'm doing."
