The Grey's Anatomy actor walked through the bustling sidewalk wearing black Nike drawstring sweatpants with the classic logo emblazoned in grey across his thigh. 

He rolled up the sleeves of his tight black hooded sweatshirt to reveal peeks of his toned forearms. 

Dane wore a watch on one wrist and dark bracelets on the other as he sported a pair of dark aviator sunglasses.

The Valentine's Day star showed off his short salt-and-pepper hair which also matched a scruffy beard and mustache. 

Noticeably absent from Eric's host of accessories was his wedding ring.

Dane's wife of 13 years, Rebecca Gayheart, cited irreconcilable differences when filing for divorce on Friday in Los Angeles.

In addition to seeking spousal support, Gayheart requested joint legal and physical custody of their two daughters, Billie, seven, and Georgia, six.  

The split comes as a surprise, as they were seen on a romantic holiday getaway in late December in Hawaii.

Both stars have had difficult stretches throughout the years, as Gayheart was involved in a car accident in Hollywood 2001 that left a nine-year-old boy named Jorge Cruz Jr. dead.

The actress, who was dating director Brett Ratner at the time, received three years of probation, a suspended license for a year, 750 hours of community service and $2,800 in fines in pleading no contest to a vehicular manslaughter charge.   

Dane has been open about his woes as well, namely an ongoing battle with depression he candidly talked about last June on The Today Show.

'I was dealing with some depression, which was kind of odd to me,' said the actor. 'I felt very conflicted about it, because I didn't feel like I had anything to be depressed about.'
