Wow, Ellen Pompeo is the realest.

As we reported, the Grey's Anatomy star got a ton of praise last month when she opened up in The Hollywood Reporter about becoming the highest-paid actress on a primetime drama — and all the bullshit (like being paid less than her male costar, Patrick Dempsey) she had to face on her way up.

In a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the 48-year-old actress discussed her decision to go public with her salary, and why it's important for women to ask for what they deserve. Ultimately, she's grateful for how the story was received.

Ellen Pompeo is our spirit animal.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Grey's Anatomy star discusses becoming the highest-paid actress on a primetime drama — and all the bullshit (like being paid less than her male costar, Patrick Dempsey) she had to face on her way up.

One thing always remained the same, the mother-of-three was determined to get her paper.

In late 2017, the 48-year-old celeb signed a new deal that paves the way for two more seasons (15 and 16) of the medical drama, earning more than $20 million a year with $575,000 per episode. Additionally, she'll get a seven-figure signing bonus, a producing fee, and backend on this spring's Grey's spinoff. Get it, bb.

In the feature with THR, the leading lady says:

"I'm 48 now, so I've finally gotten to the place where I'm OK asking for what I deserve, which is something that comes only with age. Because I'm not the most "relevant" actress out there. I know that's the industry perception because I've been this character for 14 years. But the truth is, anybody can be good on a show season one and two. Can you be good 14 years later? Now, that's a fuckin' skill."

And don't worry — she definitely brought the McDreamy tea:
