“But at the same time, I think the overall goal of my life is to always keep my ego in check,” she said. “I don’t want to tell myself lies. I don’t lie about my age.”
Pompeo, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on the series, had some thoughts on when she wants to make her exit.
“Certainly, I think to dip out sooner rather than later at this point, having done what we’ve done, to leave while the show is still on top is definitely a goal,” she said. “I’m not trying to stay on the show forever. No way. “
“The truth is, if I get too aggravated and I’m no longer grateful there, I should not be there,” Pompeo added.
