Ellen Pompeo Praises Katherine Heigl For Criticizing 'Grey's Anatomy' Hours: '100 Percent Right'

Ellen Pompeo spoke out about her former "Grey's Anatomy" co-star Katherine Heigl, and the backlash she received years ago when speaking up about long work hours. The 52-year-old TV surgeon chatted with her "Grey's" co-star Kate Walsh on Wednesday's episode of her "Tell Me" podcast, and she said the cast did used to work "crazy, crazy hours," revealing Katherine was "100 percent right" and "wasn't lying" when she called out their "17-hour workday" on "The Late Show with David Letterman" in 2009.
