Ellen Pompeo Calls Out Magazine for Lack of Diversity at Photo Shoot

Ellen Pompeo is speaking out about the importance of creating diverse work environments and she did it while in the middle of a photo shoot for a magazine.

The Grey’s Anatomy actress participated in a roundtable discussion with Gabrielle Union, Gina Rodriguez, and Emma Roberts for Porter magazine’s Women in Television issue.

“This day has been incredible, and there’s a ton of women in the room. But, I don’t see enough color,” Ellen said in the middle of the discussion. “And I didn’t see enough color when I walked in the room today. And I had a meeting with a director of another endorsement project that I’m doing.”

“I said, when I show up on set, I would like to see the crew look like the world that I walk around in every day. And I think it’s up to all productions to make sure that your crew looks like the world we see,” Ellen continued. “As caucasian people, it’s our job, it’s our task, it’s our responsibility to make sure that we speak up in every single room we walk into. That this is not OK and that we can all do better. It’s our job because we’ve created the problem.”

Gabrielle and Gina said this is also something they noticed, but they would never have brought it up while in the room as they didn’t want to appear ungrateful.

Ellen then added, “That’s why it is my job. That’s why I say we bear the burden, because they don’t feel comfortable to speak up, and I’m happy to take it on in any room at any time.”

Ellen Pompeo, Gina Rodriguez, Emma Roberts & Gabrielle Union Get Candid About Fair Pay

Ellen Pompeo, Gina Rodriguez, Emma Roberts and Gabrielle Union are on the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the four stars had to say…

Ellen, on fair pay: “We’re in very rarified air. Women with normal jobs are in different situations to us, so I sort of feel very out of touch or arrogant, even, to talk about my fight for my pay because I was in a very specific situation where I had a very real number. I had seen that Grey’s Anatomy had grossed 3.7 billion dollars over 15 years, and I could take that very real number and attribute my face, my voice. […] Even though we struggle in our industries, we’re struggling a lot less than, let’s say, people who are working normal jobs.”

Gabrielle, on fair pay: “You feel like a jackass; you feel like you should just be grateful and be quiet because it’s more [money] than others [make]. But at the same time, when those lists come out, when Forbes drops the top-paid actresses in television or the top-paid actresses in film, and there’s no women of color on it, it’s like well why didn’t you speak up?”

Emma, on fair pay: “I’ve taken less money knowing I’m taking less than a male costar, because they’re telling me this is as much as we’re going to give you; your male costar is getting more, if you don’t take this deal, another girl will. And I take it because I’m so passionate [about the project]. I was embarrassed to tell my friends, because what if my girlfriends are making as much money as their male costars.”

Gina, on fair pay: “I’ve recently been faced with being offered a project where my fellow actress was offered it prior [to me], and she tells me how much she was getting paid for it, and then I ask for the same amount and they say no because you’re not worth that much, and she was because she’s bigger than I am. But it’s the same job, the same amount of hours.”

Ellen Pompeo Explains Why There's No 'Grey's Anatomy' End For Her on 'The Ellen Show' - Watch Here!

Ellen Pompeo got emotional on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today (October 23), as she discussed her hit show Grey’s Anatomy impact and why she keeps returning to the beloved medical drama.

“There’s just no end in sight,” the 48-year-old actress told host Ellen. “The show is so popular.”

“Everywhere I go, whether it’s Italy, whether it’s France, London, Kansas,” Ellen said, “the people that come up to me with tears in their eyes and tell me how meaningful the show is to them…”

Ellen then went on to tell a story about, during the very first episode she directed, a young actor who opened up to her about the impact of the series has had on his own life.

“A teenager was in the show and he was gay, and he played a gay character,” Ellen recalled. “After we’d filmed the whole entire episode, he said to me, ‘‘My whole life, I’ve watched this show with my parents, and I sort of used the show as a way to tell my parents that I was gay — and to show my parents that it’s OK, that I’m not different, there’s nothing wrong with me. ‘Grey’s’ really helped my parents to understand what having a gay son meant, and that it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing.’”
