So, we need to talk about my fave...Ellen Pompeo! She recently sat down for an interview with Tarji P Henson for Variety. The interview got her a lot of reactions after she revealed the first 10 years behind the scenes of Grey's Anatomy weren't nearly as great as they looked on our TVs. She even shared she wanted to quit!
Well after receiving so many reactions to that interview she has some follow up words to share. Ellen said this via her Twitter account, "Hey! Anyone having feelings over Variety piece. It’s not worth getting yourself upset over not singling anyone out..as a show we all had a part to play in the environment me included..as many workplaces do..We changed that story. That’s the story we all have the power to change!"
She followed it up with what may be one of my favorite things she's ever said, "None of my comments in print are ever meant to shade anyone. That’s so not productive. My words about my journey are always meant to inspire and reflect. My shade is very obvious when I’m not subtle about it you all should know that!! 😜"
Basically she choose to clarify this because people were making themselves upset over assumptions! Ellen wants everyone to know words matter and it's important to not make judgements about what you "think" someone means.
I'm glad she shared all this with the fans! You can tell she's so proud of Grey's and she wants everyone to have lots of love towards it.
