Ellen Pompeo: It's Been An 'Incredible Journey' On 'Grey's'

Ellen Pompeo shows her stripes as she leaves Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf with an iced coffee in hand on Wednesday (May 29) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old actress was surrounded by a group of gal pals for their coffee run.

“It’s been an incredible journey filled with learning. I’ve learned so much by watching other people — how they work, their behavior, what to do, what not to do,” Ellen told Parade about her show Grey’s Anatomy. “I’m very happy and I’m very grateful for the show.”

If it was not for a medical show she’d not be famous.

Wow, good to know since that’s how you’ve been making money for the last 8 years…

Wow….that was fast! The article said that Ellen hates medical shows but now it says that she is grateful? Some of us have seen the previous one before the update! :)

And who cares if they changed the title, in that Interview she said she hates medical shows. JJ dont lie. The Interview is new and she said.

OMG..big deal. If you read the interview (which clearly some only bothered to read the title) Pompeo stated “medical shows make her anxious” so she doesn’t like to watch them. I actually get that, and in some cases very much agree. Whatever title JJ chose to use, makes no difference when you read the content. She was not being disrespectful in the slightest. Talk about some haters making a mountain out of a molehill. Next…..

Seriously people relax, you should read her interview, she said she didn’t like medical shows and didn’t watch any before Grey’s. Like ER. Gosh!

Grey’s Anatomy is my favorite show, although I have always disliked the character Meredith intensely. Every time it appeared she might die I would be thrilled only to be disappointed when it became clear she wouldn’t. Apparently she has 9 lives. I have never seen Ellen Pompeo in anything else but I don’t enjoy her acting and I think it goes beyond just disliking the character she plays. She always comes off a bit flip and biatchy in interviews, like this one. Seems to me she lucked out being the title character or she wouldn’t have lasted so long. A little gratitude and humility would be nice.
