She explained, “I think if you know how to do a lot of things—dancing, riding horses, whatever—I mean that sounds a little fancy because my kids are fortunate and they’re able to do a lot of things, but even if it’s kicking soccer ball, even if it’s learning how to jump rope, that’s how you get confident.”
Now, fans of Grey’s Anatomy know Ellen’s pink satin blazer is a bit different from the white coat she wears as Dr. Grey. And although Ellen has been with the ABC series for all 18 seasons, the 52-year-old recently hinted that she was ready to hang up that lab coat for good.
Back in May, she teased a potential exit from the show, while also noting she wants it to continue in her absence.
“I think for the young people, it’s a really good piece of content,” Ellen told Entertainment Tonight, “and we’re going to try to keep it going for the young people, not necessarily with me, but keep it going beyond me.”
