Ellen Pompeo Says She's Been Focusing on 'Convincing Everybody' To End 'Grey's Anatomy'

Ellen Pompeo is ready for Grey’s Anatomy to end.

In an interview with Insider to promote her company Betr Remedies, the 52-year-old actress said she’s been having a challenging time getting other people to get on the same page about the long-running series coming to a close.

“I’ve been trying to focus on convincing everybody that it should end,” she told the outlet, adding that she’s been met with some resistance.

“​I feel like I’m the super naive one who keeps saying, ‘But what’s the story going to be, what story are we going to tell?’” she continued. “And everyone’s like, ‘Who cares, Ellen? It makes a gazillion dollars.’”

While she waits for the show to end, Ellen has been channeling her time off-screen into addressing issues about “the state of healthcare.”

Her new company Betr Remedies offers over-the-counter medication and partners with the non-profit organization SIRUM, whose mission is to donate unused prescription medications to underserved communities via charitable pharmacies distributing to people in need.

“I saw this as a pretty interesting opportunity to be a part of a startup that was addressing some real issues that we have,” she explained.

Ellen was spotted on the set of Grey‘s late last month and you can see all the pics here.
