Ellen Pompeo's (Meredith Grey) Twitter feed is usually filled with witty observations and fun insights into her personal life… which is why we were startled to read an uncharacteristically serious tweet today, August 21.


"Some people make it so obvious when they are bored on set," the 44-year-old wrote.

Yikes. Is there drama in the Prospect Studio soundstages? Are the actors not getting along 100 percent? Are the crew members not gelling?

Ellen hasn't tweeted since, nor has she replied to her followers, so we don't know any more details. We don't know who is bored or what is boring them.

Is the mystery person bored by the production schedule? Or bored by the subject matter? It's hard to believe that Shonda & Co. would ever give the actors boring storylines.

Also, given that it's written word, it's hard to tell what tone Ellen is using. Is she irritated? Amused? Teasing?

So basically, Ellen is giving us a maddening blind item. We doubt we'll ever get any answers, so we'll just have to hope that everyone in the cast and crew are on good terms!

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 premieres Thursday, September 25, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Don't miss the episode.
