Ellen Pompeo is firing back at speculations suggesting that her Grey’s Anatomy co-stars’ surprising exits are due to her salary increase.
The 48-year-old star took to Twitter on Thursday to respond to the “unfortunate” claims that her $20 million salary is to blame for Sarah Drews and Jessica Capshaw exiting the hit medical drama after season 14.
“Its unfortunate that DEADLINE chooses to try to pit women against each other on International Women's Day #shameonyounotme,” Ellen first tweeted before continuing, "I'm a big girl. DEADLINE can take shots at me if they want but to the fans please don't fall into that trap. This is above my pay grade."
