Ellen Pompeo Hopes For Barack Obama

Ellen Pompeo Hopes For Barack Obama

Ellen Pompeo spends the day with family at Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif., on Wednesday.

The Grey’s Anatomy star wore a “Hope” Obama t-shirt while she carried a bottle of Vitaminwater. She also made a few phone calls as she walked through the theme park, proudly displaying her shirt.

Ellen, 38, was also spotted on Tuesday petting a panting English bulldog after leaving Book Soup, a bookshop on L.A.’s Sunset Strip.

Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, September 25, 9/8c.

    ” really appreciate this kind of women who don’t give a sh*t to popularity ”

    Then why did she do Playboy ;). She’s like every actress in Hollywood. I know EP peeps are slow, but I didn’t know they were this slow.

    lovergirl Says:

    I have hopes for Obama too, good choice Ellen :)

  32. 32
    sheryl Says:

    Hope is just words coming from Obama. He hasn’t brought hope to anyone as a leader. He hasn’t united anyone either.

    In fact, not since the OJ trial has America been shown to be so racially divided. But what do you expect from a man that sat in a church for 20 years with a pastor spewing racial hatred and who thinks black brains are different than white brains…..sad.

    Obama makes me sad, not hopeful.

    sam Says:

    How can a rational adult wear a T-shirt that says Hope on it and imply that a politician is the answer, celebrities have the intelligence and maturity of some kid in school maybe it’s the bubble they live in but do they ever grow up? I would be embarrassed to walk around with a shirt like that and be naive enough or immature enough to believe that a politician was the “Hope to believe”, they are and the college kids that also fall for the Obama marketing the 21 first century version of the 60′s hippies, 60′s recycled LOVE, HOPE and PEACE,

    John Says:

    I agree with Hmmm. Playboy – really classy. NOT !!

    Ellen fans are deluded if they think she is a sweet unassuming publicity-shy person. She was a ***** on Punked, married to a convicted drug dealer & credit card fraudster who ruined many people’s lives, & is fugly, with one of the most irritating voices EVER.

    Thank god Greys has talented actors in Sandra Oh, Sara Ramirez & Chandra Wilson. Now that the puck-worthy Mer/Der are together, hopefully they will be put on the backburner to let the real actors of Greys come to the fore, although it’s amusing that even Sandra Oh with no storyline last year can still outshine the lead & secure an Emmy nom lol. Talent always wins out. Ellen will be back to obscurity after a few more seasons, so make the money for your drugs while you can !

    yaay go Ellen! You’re supporting the right guy!!

    Merisi Says:

    #34 I don’t think Ellen is the sweetest person on earth (how would I know since I’ve never met her ?) but I do like what little I see of her very much. To me, actors all play a game, so I guess I just like the way she plays a little better. And I wasn’t shocked by her behaviour on Punkd, but I know other people agreed with you and that what is funny for some won’t be for others so there is no need to argue here.

    As for her husband, he made mistakes (big ones) and paid his due, so I believe he has a right to a second chance. If Society decided that he didn’t need to spend his lifetime in prison, what more can he do ? Locking himself up for the rest of his life out of shame ? Asking people to spit on him everytime he goes out ?

    As for Grey’s, I completely agree with you, I think Grey’s has some very talented actors, Ellen being one of them, and I hope SO will get the emmy, but I don’t think you need a reward to prove your talent. I also want to hope that “talent always wins out”, that’s why I’m glad to see that more and more critics are noticing and complimenting Ellen on her work on Grey’s.

    James Says:

    Can someone please inform all the publicists in LA that we do not care about political endorsements from celebrities. Really, it is quite infuriating to see these actors, uneducated as a whole for the most part, endorsing a candidate that they probably know little to nothing about.

    I hope this stupid crap loses votes for Obama. Mixing the pop culture with an election is repulsive and illustrates how idiotic most voters are in this country. Bring back the poll tests, please.

    OBAMA PRESIDENT Says:

    I think it’s great that celebrities give their opinion about politics, just because she supports Obama and not McCain doesn’t make her bad or good, she just gives her opinion, just like we all do by giving our opinion about her now!
    So before judging her look at what you’re doing!

    btw thank you JJ, we miss seeing Ellen around since a few months .

    Kamy Says:

    I really think that Ellen is a simple person who doesn’t run after popularity. Yes, she did Playboy, what the matter, she wasn’t naked and the pics were really classy and it’s a mag like any other! It’s part of her job to be on mag!

    What I want to say by not running after popularity is: she doesn’t where expensive designed clothes when she does her shopping, she doesn’t go where she knows papz will see her, she’s one of the most discreet actress I have ever see.

    I’m quite mature to accept people might dislike her, there are a lot of actors/actresses I can’t stand but bringing over and over again, the pun’k thing that we all know was a trick or her husband’s past as only stones to threw at her it’s quite lame and low!

    Ellen Pompeo is a COW !! Says:

    She is so ugly !! Old & Haggard. And a ***** on Punked.

    She has posed completely NAKED. So much for holding onto her privacy. YUCK !

    The fact that her naive little fans see her as some kind of role model is very sad.

    steff Says:

    Wow, why so much hatred girl, did she killed your puppy?

    Anyway, I find her elegant as a person and talented as actress.

    #62 I understand what you are trying to do or, rather, “who” you are trying to imitate, but I don’t think reciprocity is the right answer. More importantly, it doesn’t give you the right (or the excuse ?) to insult an entire fanbase.

    And I too hope we will get pictures of Ellen and Justin. I love those two together and I wish we would see more scenes with them on Grey’s !

    Jake Says:

    She looks so scrawny & haggard. So unattractive.

    And I agree with the other posters, she was a cow on Punked. Fans can defend her all they like, the fact is it did little for her public image & she will always be regarded as common old white trash. She is wise to keep her mouth shut now. Even her interviews have to be scripted.

  70. 70
    Jake Says:

    Frank – she did pose completely nude for an Italian mag. So the privacy argument is completely fabricated by her fans.

    A private actress wouldn’t pose completely nude for the whole world ! If that isn’t trashy, I don’t know what is !!

    Johnny Says:

    I love her :)

    Yes she posed naked, I don’t see anything bad about that and I think when people says that she’s a private person they talk about the fact that she avoid the papz, she does her possible to avoid them and avoid polemic, she doesn’t go at every party threw in LA… you don’t see her every day unnecessary in mags… that’s what private mean.

    You know I can give you an endless list of actresses who posed naked even KH and SO did it and we see more of them than Ellen and I like the 3 of them. If you don’t want to see naked pics, avoid them!

    Ellen’s the most simple person I have ever see, she’s classy and gorgeous

  74. 74
    ☆F a m o u s☆ Says:

    I don’t see the point common between Ellen posing naked 10 years ago and Ellen being private about her life !!!
    Don’t forget that she was a model in the past and what the issue with posing naked a lot of people do it, if your at easy with your body, why not doing it?
    And I agree with the previous posts, EP is really a private person, you pratically know nothing about her life, she’s not everyday photographed, she told in a past interview that if someone want to avoid papz it’s possible and I like the fact she stays away of them as much as possible!

    I really like her, she’s a talented actress and a great person :)

    THANKS JJ
    GIVE US MORE OF HER PLEASE

    Lee Says:

    She’s so private that she poses naked for the world to see ???

    Really ?? LOL That’s the funniest thing I’ve read today !!!

    You only pose naked if you are desperate for the publicity, which she obviously was. Let’s face it she doesn’t exactly possess the sharpest brain or the funniest wit. She needed some PR.

    Do you see Kate Winslet or Cate Blanchett posing naked ? No. They are truly private talented actresses who would never sink to such low levels. Ellen is just another soap opera actress milking her fame for all it’s worth. Without Greys she will go back to obscurity.

  77. 77
    LINDSAY Says:

    Your life must be really sad if you track a news dating from a week just to bash and threw your venom!
