Happy Belated Birthday, Ellen Pompeo!

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.

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!

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)

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
