Ellen Pompeo may have signed on to play Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy for two more years, but just in case she decides to retire from acting after that, she’s got a backup plan: Airplane pilot!
This week, Ellen shared a photo from the cockpit of a Virgin Airlines plane, where she took the pilot’s seat. We’re so jealous! Do you think they gave her those little golden wings? She didn’t stay up there for long, though — her next Instagram post came from the cheap seats. Bummer. We were hoping she’d reenact our favorite scene from Bridesmaids!
“Decided to get my ass back where I belong,” Ellen wrote along with the second pic.
