Denzel Washington Addresses That Big Fight on 'Grey's Anatomy' Set with Ellen Pompeo

Denzel Washington is finally addressing that massive blowout he had on set with Ellen Pompeo when he directed a season 12 episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

Back in September, Ellen, 52, said that Denzel, 67, “went ham on my ass” when she improvised a line with one of her co-stars.

“I was like, ‘Look at me when you apologize. Look at me,’” Ellen recalled yelling at the actor during the scene. “And that wasn’t in the dialogue. And Denzel went ham on my ass. He was like, ‘I’m the director. Don’t you tell him what to do.’”

After Denzel called her out, Ellen fired back, “I was like, ‘Listen, motherf–ker, this is my show! This is my set! Who are you telling- You barely even know where the bathroom is!’”

In a new interview, Denzel was asked about the situation.

As he promoted his new movie The Tragedy of Macbeth in an interview with Variety, Denzel was asked about the fight with Ellen, but he sidestepped the question.

“No, no,” Denzel said, claiming that he doesn’t recall that day on set with Ellen.

With a slight grin, Denzel then added, “But it’s all good.”

When Ellen talked about situation, she said that she and Denzel would be able to move on after that fight and were “fine after that.”
