When it comes to agonizing over missteps in love, including a highly publicized cheating scandal, Kat McPhee is, to put it bluntly, so over it.

The American Idol alum and Scorpion star opened up about her failed marriage and subsequent divorce in Ocean Driveand said even the worst of her past has taught her important lessons.

"I feel pretty grounded," she said. "I got married really young, and then divorced, and in the last couple of years, I felt like, 'Wow, this is what I should have been doing when I was 20 instead of planning a wedding.'"

McPhee married Nick Cokas in 2008, and the couple announced their separation in 2014. Later, it was revealed that McPhee had been romantically tied to Smash director Michael Morris before her split from Cokas. McPhee has since dated Scorpion co-star Elyes Gabel, but the couple broke up in July.

"I don’t have any regrets," she added. "All of the choices I made I learned from in a really deep way. I have always been fortunate to have strong influences in my life who have forced me to look at my own choices and my own failures. I think we are all on that journey to have more awareness about who we are as a person and to grow and learn."

Now, McPhee says she's changing her philosophy toward love, and learning to trust her instincts instead of forcing feelings that may not be sincere.

"I have not been single for very much of my life. I don’t really understand how to date or how to be single," she said. "As soon as I know that I don’t really want to be in a relationship with somebody, I don’t really care to keep it going. I’m trying to date in a way that doesn’t lock me down. There is still a certain level of attachment with the prior relationship that I was in, so emotionally to be suddenly dating other people is not as easy. People say, 'You just need to hook up with a bunch of people,' but I am more of an in-love kind of person."
