Ellen Pompeo Net Worth 2018: How Much is Ellen Worth Now?

Ellen Pompeo Net Worth 2018: How Much is Ellen Worth Now?

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Wednesday that Pompeo signed a new deal for "Grey's Anatomy" Seasons 15 and 16, should ABC renew the drama (it's the second highest rated show on the network, so it's pretty likely). "Are you out of your fuckin" mind?

"My agent once sent me to see Harvey, too". "He didn't try anything on me", the Boston-bred star said. However, as Pompeo worked on Grey's Anatomy for longer and gained more experience in the industry, she realized that though she was more financially and professionally stable than her female peers, she was still getting the short end of the straw. "Nobody's just going to give it to you". "'We don't need you; we have Patrick.'". The minute my friend left, he asked me if I would get naked in a movie. "Is that OK?" Pompeo said. She was also annoyed that despite being the lead, her share of the almost $3 billion franchise was relatively meager. When your face and your voice have been part of something that's generated $3 billion for one of the biggest corporations in the world, you start to feel like, "OK, maybe I do deserve a piece of this". The actress offers colorfully candid insights about her road toward becoming, as of late 2017, the highest paid actress in primetime drama.

"You think, "Not only do I have to show that I'm a good actress, but that director also has to in some way fall in love with me and at least become enamoured with me". "Now, what did that look like?" Instead of naming the episode after a song which they initially meant to do when they gave it the title "Four Seasons in One Day", they opted to change the title to the phone number of the National Domestic Abuse Hotline.

"For me, Patrick leaving the show was a defining moment, deal-wise", Pompeo said of Dempsey, who exited in 2015 after 11 seasons as Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd. "They could always use him as leverage against me-'We don't need you; we have Patrick'-which they did for years", Pompeo wrote. There is, after all, no Grey's Anatomy without Meredith Grey. The actress told T.H.R. that she and Dempsey never discussed their separate deals with ABC, and that Dempsey declined to negotiate alongside Pompeo-a tactic used, for example, by the cast of Friends to ensure that every series regular was paid equally. "There were many times where I reached out about joining together to negotiate, but he was never interested in that", she added.

"At one point, I asked for 5,000 dollars more than him just on principle, because the show is Grey's Anatomy and I'm Meredith Grey. They wouldn't give it to me".

She said she didn't walk away from the series when that happened because she thought, "Why should I walk away from a great part because of a guy". You feel conflicted but then you figure, "I'm not going to let a guy drive me out of my own house". "What do you think of this guy?" Pompeo said. "I was like, "Are you people fucking nuts? Why do you feel that you have to replace this person?' I couldn't believe how fast the studio and the network felt like they had to get a penis in there". The Boston native had a modest upbringing, but now she is earning about $20 million a year, which will make her already impressive net worth even larger.
