Ellen Pompeo is looking back at earlier seasons of "Grey's Anatomy" and recalling one particular on-set dispute. On Wednesday's episode of her new podcast "Tell Me," the 51-year-old actress sat down with her former Grey's co-star Patrick Dempsey and talked about their time together on the show. During their chat, Ellen shared a story from set that Patrick wasn't there to witness, the time she allegedly got in a dispute with Denzel Washington. The two-time Oscar winner was brought in to direct an episode of the show in 2016 titled "The Sound of Silence." Ellen explained that she went off-script to play off the tension she felt from her co-star's delivery, but apparently Denzel didn't like that.
