Ellen Pompeo (Personal Quotes)

“It was the best thing that happened to me all week – to say the very least…I was so flattered. I thanked him and told him how much I hoped we would have a chance to work together one day.” – talking about when she was complimented by actor Jake Gyllenhaal shortly after arriving in Hollywood. Just three weeks later, she was working with him on Moonlight Mile (2002)!!
On her character Meredith Grey – ‘She’s smart enough to make her way through medical school but she can’t figure out that she can’t sleep with strangers all the time.’
I don’t find acting to be a particularly noble way to make a living. I’m not saving anybody’s life, I’m not a teacher, I’m not working for UNICEF. I don’t think I’m some big deal.
