Grey’s Anatomy Is Cutting Two Actresses. Is It Because Of Ellen Pompeo’s New Contract
“Grey’s Anatomy” is not bringing back longtime cast members Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew next season. And Ellen Pompeo denies that it has anything to do with her massive new contract.
The showrunner says they aren’t returning for “creative” reasons.
But when a tabloid reported the news, they pointed out that this comes just six weeks after star Ellen Pompeo signed a new contract worth $20 million a year. They are saying in a round about way that the producers might have cut them to save money.
Well, Ellen didn’t like this at all.
She Tweeted, quote, “It’s unfortunate that Deadline.com chooses to try to pit women against each other on International Women’s Day . . . I’m a big girl. [They] can take shots at me if they want. But to the fans, please don’t fall into that trap. This is above my pay grade.”
The tabloid later updated their story, claiming that they never meant to make a connection between Ellen’s new raise and the casting changes.
