Dr. Meredith Grey can’t escape the drama even during her dream vacation in Italy!
Ellen Pompeo’s purse was snatched “righter under [her] nose” on Friday while out and about in the streets of Florence, Italy.
The Grey’s Anatomy star was having dinner at Ristorante & Wine Bar dei Frescobaldi in the Italian city when the item was robbed from her, as she retold the story with a good sense of humor on social media.
“My purse was stolen from right under my nose!!” the 48-year-old captioned a snap of local police. “I blame the rose!” she joked.
Ellen’s good humor is no doubt down to the fact that the purse was in fact recovered. Luckily for the actress, the police and the staff at the restaurant helped her during the chaotic time. Pompeo ended her rant thanking the cops—and even the thief.
“Grazia to whoever stole it for dropping it on the street exactly intact. I was tracking my phone and chasing you down,” she wrote. “Had I caught you… it would not have ended well for you… I am nice but let’s not forget my heritage… Napolitano.”
Despite the unpleasant incident, the actress has had a pretty good time during her vacation in The Boot. Ellen has been very active on social media in the last few days, sharing many great pics of the unforgettable sights of Florence.
Seems like not everything went va’ fa Napoli for Ellen after all!
