Ellen Pompeo: Happy With Her Body

Ellen Pompeo: Happy With Her Body

Ellen Pompeo leaves her house and runs some errands on Friday afternoon (March 26) in Hollywood Hills, Calif.

The 40-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress recently told Self what happened when she got pregnant with Stella Ivery: “I went up a pants size. I was in size 25 jeans and went to 26. I gained 26 pounds. Now, after the baby, I weigh 10 pounds more than I ever have.”

Ellen added, “I love it, because everyone always told me I was too skinny before, and I thought, Oh, God, what if there are 14-year-olds who think I’m not eating, and then they don’t eat? Do I have a responsibility? But really, I don’t care if people think I’m too skinny. This is my body. If they don’t like it, screw it. [My weight] doesn’t matter to me. I have a healthy baby.”

    She is just lovely, but even if I love to see her pics, she really doesn’t look like she likes the paparazzi, and I totally understand that.

  • Richard

    Ellen looks beautiful!!!! She is the best!

  • jess

    i’m even skinnier than her, it seems like the solution is to have a baby lol. so to finally be able to gain weight is another reason to look forward to that.

    Umm 25 inches is tiny! And 26 too. Im size 28 and Im still slim.

  • ++Logan++

    I must be blind because she looks the same to me. She is always running around and seems to be very active which would also help her stay thin. The scales don’t mean anything, as long as you are active and look in the mirror and are happy with what you see, then that is all that matters.

    She is tiny, but toned. I read a few years ago that she works out to get some curves and stay in shape. Her nickname when she was growing up was pencil pompeo because she was so skinny.
