Happy Belated Birthday, Ellen Pompeo!

by at . Comments

The Grey's Anatomy Insider staff would like to extend belated birthday wishes to the lovely, talented woman who literally puts the Grey in Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo, who celebrated her 38th birthday Saturday, November 10.

A native of the Boston area, Pompeo achieved modest fame with a variety of film roles before starring as Meredith Grey and becoming a household name - not to mention a Golden Globe award nominee and Screen Actors Guild award winner.

Now 38 years young, Ellen Pompeo lives in L.A. with her fiance, Chris Ivery, and their two dogs. Here's hoping we are treated to many more seasons of watching Ellen on Grey's Anatomy as the conflicted and complex title character.

  • Boston Uncommon
  • Patrick and Ellen on the Set

Despite her rise to fame, Ellen Pompeo remains one of the more down to earth stars in Hollywood, and certainly among the most liked by readers of our site. We wish her the best, belatedly, on her birthday and thank her for her work on Grey's Anatomy!

After reading the comment above from Irisheyes I thought I would share as well. In the office that I work in there are a few of us that watch GA and naturally talk about it on Friday mornings and basically throughout the week. There are two girls that have never watched GA that I work with and I told them they were really missing out on a great show and they hear all of us talk about it all the time. I shared my first season dvd's with them and now they are hooked! THey love it! They are both watching season 2 now and they are bringing the disks in as they finish it and handing it off to the other one. One of the girls is always asking me about what happens next, but I won't tell her because I don't won't to ruin any of it for her. SO each morning since they have been watching they can't wait to tell me what they have watched and then I normally say.....Oh the next one is going to be soooo good! (ha) I love knowing that I have these girls hooked. ITs funny, whenever there are a few of us gathered together for whatever reason most people know it has something to do with GA! ALso, on THursdays there are about (5) of us from the office that come over to my house during our lunch hour and we watch the previous week GA episode to get all pumped up for the new episode that night. We take turns feeding the group each week! We really have alot of fun and it gives us something to look forward to each week on Thursdays! So we get a double dose of GA on Thursdays! We are definately addicted. My two sons worry about me! (ha)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
