Ellen Pompeo revealed on the latest episode of her podcast, Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo, that she got into an argument with Denzel Washington when he directed Grey’s Anatomy in 2016.
She told her guest and former co-star Patrick Dempsey that she yelled an improvised line to another actor during an emotional scene which resulted in Washington going “ham on her ass.”
She said, “He was like, 'I’m the director. Don’t you tell him what to do.'”
