Ellen said that Chris “had no idea what he was getting into.”

The couple met at a grocery store in 2003 and it wasn’t until two years later that Ellen would land her role on Grey’s Anatomy.

“I remember in the beginning it was really hard for him. He was like, ‘This is not what I signed up for. You go to work and make out with that. I like Patrick [Dempsey] and everything, he’s a good dude, but like really?’” Ellen said.

Ellen also discussed her newfound confidence after turning 50.

“I think there’s something that just hits you when you turn 50 where you literally don’t give a f–k,” she said. “At 50, you don’t do anything you don’t want to do.”

“You spend your whole twenties criticizing yourself, comparing yourself to other women, thinking you’re not good enough,” Ellen added. “And then in your thirties, you’re sort of still doing that a little bit and figuring it out. The forties, I think you really start to feel yourself, and right when you start feeling yourself in your forties: fifties. You’re like, ‘Oh my goodness. Don’t leave me. Youth, skin, come back!’”

“Life is really quite cruel, actually. When you think about it, youth is wasted on the young,” she joked.

Last month, Ellen defended a fan who criticized the latest season of Grey’s Anatomy. Check it out
