Whenever Grey's Anatomy finally comes to an end, Ellen Pompeo may be hanging up more than just her scrubs.
The actress revealed last night that she may hanging up this acting thing for good.
"I definitely don’t have a strong desire to act after Grey. I definitely feel myself transitioning. I don’t find acting terribly empowering," the star said during a BuzzFeed Brews panel discussion hosted by Kate Aurthur yesterday.
Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey signed new two-year contract with ABC last January that have them sticking around Grey's Anatomy through Seasons 11 and 12.
Many believe the series will come to an end after that.
And the same may then be said for Pompeo's acting career, as she's already looking to get involved with producing.
“Acting has been a wonderful opportunity, but I’ve done so much of it for the past 11 years - maybe part of my personality is I feel like I have something to prove sometimes - and with acting, I don’t feel like I have anything to prove anymore," she said, laughing: "Even though I have no awards."
Grey's Anatomy Season 11 premieres on Thursday, September 25 at 8/7c.
