The 50 -year-old actress, who frolics Dr. Meredith Grey on the picture, spoke on Spotify’s Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast about her decision.

” For me, personally, a healthful home life is most important than profession. I didn’t grow up with a particularly happy childhood. So the relevant recommendations that I have this great husband and these three beautiful children[ and] a happy home life was really something I needed to complete, to close the hole in my mettle ,” Ellen says.” And so I made a decision to make money, and not chase innovative impersonate personas .”

She continued.” I don’t like shooting anything ever, and acting to me, in my own experience, was a lot of chasing. You’ve got to hunt roles, you’ve got to beg for personas, you’ve got to convince people … and although I develop and it’s the same kind of thing, I reflect I still get it on from a home of, I’m never that thirsty because I’m financially defined .”
