Why Ellen Pompeo Stuck With Grey’s Anatomy ? “I Made a Decision to Make Money”



She has stayed with the long-running series for personal reasons, including financial stability.
Pompeo has three children with her husband, Chris Ivery.

“You know, I made choices to stay on the show. For me, personally, a healthy home life was more important than career. I didn’t grow up with a particularly happy childhood. So to have a happy home life was really something I needed to complete, to close the hole in my heart.”

“And so I made a decision to make money, and not chase creative acting roles. That’s what, ultimately, I think, the hustler in me—I don't like chasing anything, ever. And acting to me, in my experience, was a lot of chasing. You've got to chase roles, you’ve got to beg for roles, you’ve got to convince people. And although I produce and it’s the same kind of thing, I think I still do it from a place of, I’m never that thirsty because I’m financially set.”
