It is hard to believe that Ellen Pompeo, the leading lady of Grey's Anatomy, may just quit acting after the series finishes. During a recent Buzzfeed Brews Q+A panel, Pompeo stated she didn't find acting "terribly empowering" and that when she hit 40, she realized that she didn't "necessarily want to work for other people".

Although Pompeo doesn't seem satisfied staying with her acting career, I'm not sure I'm ready to see her leave the spotlight just yet. Thankfully, she stated that she's not certain that she'll quit for good after the series finishes. Which means...I just might want to shoot a letter to Shonda to keep Grey's on for a few more seasons. I don't think I'm ready to let Meredith or Ellen go.
