Are Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) and Renee Zellweger related? Um, no. And don't ask Ellen this question to her face either. Despite being born in the same year (1969, but you didn't hear that from us), the Grey's Anatomy starlet and Renee Zellweger are not, in fact, twinsies.
Their identical smiles have all of Hollywood mistaking the actresses, much to Ellen's dismay. "I get so sick of hearing it," she told W Magazine in 2003, about being compared to her celebrity look-alike. "The last journalist I had an interview with told me that everyone in the restaurant was staring because they thought I was her," she griped, rolling her eyes, "and I said, 'No. They’re staring because you have that goddamn tape recorder on the table.'"
Sheesh! Okay, we're sorry! We take it back. You just have similar coloring and bone structure... And will probably definitely play sisters in a movie at some point before you die. (Just saying.)
