The Grey's Anatomy anatomy hiatus seems to be treating our girl Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) well. Lately, she's been spotted out and about in workout clothes, hitting up the spa, and now, she's kicking back at the movie theater. We're feeling relaxed just looking at her!

The actress was spotted in The Americana theater in LA over the weekend, heading to see The Bourne Legacy with a friend. As for her movie nosh? An extra-large bag of popcorn —
'atta girl.

While life seems to be low-key for Ellen right now, it might not be the same for her character on Season 9. Aside from grieving her sister's death, it looks like Meredith GreyCristina Yang (Sandra Oh) will be going head-to-head when the series returns. We guess it's not all rainbows and buttered popcorn after all!

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
