Grey's Anatomy costars Patrick Dempsey and Isaiah Washington were involved in a heated argument on the set of their hit show on Monday, which nearly ended in a fistfight.

Dempsey, 40, and Washington, 43, nearly came to blows during a spat over shooting issues.

Washington tells People magazine, "We were like two baseball players...nose-to-nose.

"We had a difference of opinions while working on set but we've resolved it."

Washington, who plays Dr. Preston Burke says the fight began over "time and (keeping) the production going. The communication was lost in translation."

But he says no punches were thrown, adding, "Our faces are too beautiful for that!"

Dempsey's representative says, "In close families arguments happen. They worked it out."

Washington added jokingly, "I've never been that close to (Patrick) before. He has really pretty blue eyes."
