Ellen Pompeo tells Us Weekly that the end is nigh for Grey’s Anatomy, despite creator Shonda Rhimes’ pledge to keep the show going for as long as Pompeo wanted to. “We’re getting there. Shonda and I will make that decision together,” she told Us exclusively on Tuesday, May 1. “I think that one of the biggest lessons that this show has taught me and being on this show for so long has taught me, is that relationships do change. And they do grow. They take work. Like any marriage, friendship. You gotta put in the work. You have to accept other people’s flaws, and accept your own flaws and try to change and be a better person. But I think everything is worth the time and effort. And things get better.” The mother of three adds that she wants to spend more time with her kids. “I want to be more involved in my kids’ lives as they get older. And they need me more, and this world is such a crazy place,” Pompeo, 48, told Us.
