Ellen Pompeo Praised For Being A Total Badass In Airing Out Grey's Anatomy Salary Negotiations, Patrick Dempsey Tea, & MORE!

Ellen Pompeo

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:

Walking out of an audition room, the 37-year-old told her followers she was frustrated with the lack of roles she's been offered — which, according to Marika, is because she's "not famous" and "not super ethnic."

It might be her 25th anniversary with Barack Obama, but Michelle Obama spent her day on Tuesday in conversation with with Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.

The lawyer reflected on her family's time in charge — and the differences facing our country now, joking:

"For the last eight years, we had a standard of ethics, a lot of constraints. What it means to have a commander-in-chief that actually upholds the standards of the White House…"

She went on to encourage women to "speak up" and demand a seat at the table, which is dominated by white men:

"Don't waste your seat at the table and if you're scared to use your voice, then give up your seat to someone who can use it because we can't afford to waste that opportunity. I want women to pay attention, because this is what happens when we don't stand up. We give our seats up to those who are supposed to be there, because of the stereotypes of what power and success is supposed to be."

The activist added:
