Ellen Pompeo: “Watching myself age on TV is miserable”

FFN_vcv_51940955 - Ellen Pompeo: "Watching myself age on TV is miserable"

On being on Grey’s Anatomy for 11 years:

“At 33, I was wise enough to know my clock was already ticking in Hollywood. Watching myself age on TV is miserable. To be honest, it’s the toughest part of my job. But as uncomfortable as watching myself age is, I don’t think focusing on physical beauty is necessarily the best thing for your mind. It’s a natural thing that we all do, but I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing. The older you get, the more you realize life isn’t about your looks. Everyone ages, and it’s okay.”

… says 46 year-old Ellen.

I like that she is honest about aging. None of this “aging is great and I don’t care at all” crap.

It’s a cultural topic, I guess. In certain countries and let’s call it “society groups” aging is comfortable. The fact, that you change physically isn’t alarming. Being stressed out by the fact, that you age and change, it’s about depending on validation from the outside, depending your worth on your looks. Society standards are changing, worth and wealth standards, too, it’s our own responsibility to stay true to self loving and self worthing thoughts and actions.

A lot of women don’t care. I’ve never heard any woman in my family griping about aging. It’s not in our culture.

She is aging rather poorly. Poor thing. But she shouldn’t point out the obvious!
