Not-so-perfect trip

While enjoying her time in Italy, Ellen Pompeo had one troubling experience, which is the last thing anyone would want during their dream vacation.

Pompeo posted on her Instagram about having her purse stolen during a lunch at a lovely restaurant. 

Grey's Anatomy star had to chase the robber down the street, as she was tracking her phone. The actress' persistence paid off, as the perpetrator dropped her purse on the ground, and Ellen was able to safely pick it up.

Funnily enough, Pompeo laughed at the situation stating in her social media message that she "blames the rosé". Looks like she relaxed a bit too much.

Lovely time with kids

Despite the robbery, Ellen had a great time in Italy. After all, she had her three wonderful kids to keep her company.
