"I was one of those young men that thought more is better," he says, "and everybody looked at me and thought that I was a freak because I smelled so strong of cologne."

Even before meeting Jillian, his wife of nine years, Patrick Dempsey "was a serial monogamist," he says.

"I've never found it easy to have one-night stands ... it tears away at your soul," the Grey's Anatomy and Made of Honor star, 42, tells the U.K. edition of Glamour" magazine for June. "By the time you open yourself up, you have to close yourself off."

Dempsey credits his spouse, a hairdresser now consulting for Avon, with turning around his life after years of losing out on roles, partly because his dyslexia made it difficult to learn lines for auditions.
