Ellen Pompeo just wrapped season 14 of her hit TV series Grey's Anatomy. The show lost two of its regular cast members but was still renewed for one more year.
Ahead of filming season 15, the 48-years-old actress decided to get some rest and went on a vacation with her kids.
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.
Grazia a polizia Di Firenzia squadro volanti y resterante Frescobaldi my purse was stolen from right under my nose!! I blame the rose!! But Grazia to who ever stole it for dropping it on the street exactly in tact. I was tracking my phone and chasing you down... had I caught you... it would not have ended well for you... I am nice but lets not forget my heritage... NAPOLITANO.... hai furtuno y io hai destine 👊🏼🇮🇹😘 also I hope you were smiling because e Sarai catturato perche sei in macchina 📷📷🎞 please forgive my horrible Italian
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.
7-year-old Stella, 4-year-old Sienna, and 2-year-old Eli Christopher all looked happy and definitely enjoyed being in Italy with their mommy.
We can all learn optimism from Ellen Pompeo. She lets nothing keep her down.
