We all know Cristina is Meredith’s “person” and visa versa, but is their relationship too unrealistic? Ellen sure thinks so!
“I relate more to a husband-wife relationship,” she recently told Parade. “I can’t really relate to a married woman having such an obsession with a female friend. I love my girlfriends. I have some great girlfriends, and I love them to death, but no one competes with my husband. I don’t know what guy would actually put up with being second in his marriage.”
But that doesn’t mean Ellen doesn’t love working with her partner in “dark-and-twisty” crime, Sandra, on set.
“Obviously, I love Sandra Oh, and I think she’s a brilliant actress,” she said. “I just don’t think that their relationship is very realistic given that the character of Meredith is married and the fact that Cristina is married as well.”
