Ellen Pompeo stars on Grey's Anatomy. Maybe you have heard of that show. She was also in films such as Moonlight Mile and Old School....

Over the years, Grey's Anatomy has featured a main character being run over by a bus.

Also: a giant storm, a hospital shooting and a plane crash, among many other large-scale tragedies.

In other words: this long-running ABC drama isn't known for its humor.

But Ellen Pompeo - who may quit acting when the show's run is complete - is perhaps seeking to change that impression, at least based on the following hilarious set photo the actress posted to her WhoSay account.

Ellen Pompeo may soon be checking out of Grey's Anatomy.

And acting altogether.

In a discussion with Buzzfeed last night, the veteran actress - who is signed through Grey's Anatomy Season 11 and Grey's Anatomy Season 12 - made it clear that being in front of the camera is no longer a passion.

“I definitely don’t have a strong desire to act after Grey’s. I definitely feel myself transitioning. I don’t find acting terribly empowering,” Pompeo said during a BuzzFeed Brews Q&A while seated alongside stars Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder).

TV Guide has published its annual list television's highest-paid actors, and there are some serious shake-ups in the 2014 pecking order.

For one thing, the number 1,2, and 3 spots all belong to Big Bang Theory cast mates.

Tim Allen
The former Tool Man's return to television has netted him some big bucks. Allen receives an estimated $250,000 an episode for Last Man Standing.

Yes, as you may have heard, Kaley Cuoco and her co-stars signed $90 million contracts after protracted negotiations, making them the most well-compensated cast on the small screen by a fairly wide margin.

Kaley and the Geek Squad (as Charlie Sheen dubbed them when he was the brightest star in the CBS galaxy) will pull an estimated $1 million an episode for the next three years, and will also enjoy an undisclosed portion of the show's profits.

Industry insiders say the TBBT actors may be the last stars to receive such astonishing paydays due to audience fragmentation brought about by cable and streaming services, as well as "cast churning" (the practice of frequently dispatching series regulars, say with a Valyrian steel blade).

Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have signed two-year contracts to stay with ABC's Grey's Anatomy through the spring of 2016, according to reports.

The actors who have played Dr. Meredith Grey and Dr. Derek Shepherd since the show's debut in 2005 will keep the actors on the show through Season 12.

ABC has yet to officially pick up the medical drama beyond Grey's Anatomy Season 10, but it seemed more than likely before this and even more so now.

Fellow Grey's original Sandra Oh won't be joining them, however. The perennial Emmy contender announced in August that this spring is her swan song.

Six originals in all - Oh, Dempsey, Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. - came into the current season with expiring contracts.

The future for the others is unclear, but with Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, plus a bunch of newcomers on board, the show will go on ... for awhile it appears.

Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo wasn't a fan of this year's Emmy Awards.

A big reason for that? The telecast's lack of diversity, according to the star.

Ellen and Chris Pic

"I didn't see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me," she said, adding specifically that "The dance number was embarrassing."

Did you see one person of color in that dance number?"

Grey's Anatomy is one of the more diverse shows on TV, which Pompeo, who is also in a biracial marriage (to Chris Ivery) says is one of her favorite things about it.

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo was among the People's Choice Awards winners Wednesday night. For Favorite Dramatic TV Actress, not Favorite Crotch Shot.

She might as well have won the latter, though. When she walked up to accept the honor, she held up her dress, spread her legs and flashed her crotch for all to see.

Grey's Anatomy? More like Pink's Anatomy! Or something. Sorry.

One Stella McCartney blazer. Two gorgeous stars. Who wore it better?

The former co-stars of Grey's Anatomy, Kate Walsh and Ellen Pompeo, both wore the same Stella McCartney blazer recently, with Walsh (girlfriend of Neil Andrea now the leading lady of Private Practice) pairing hers with ombré jeans.

Pompeo, still the leading lady of Grey's and now the mother of a baby girl, Stella Luna, with husband Chris Ivery, opted for a simple pencil skirt with hers.

Who wore it better? You tell us ...
