Her bad! On Thursday, Nov. 5, Ellen Pompeo told SiriusXM radio host Bevy Smith that she “feels bad” for slamming Daniel Craig via Twitter last month, attributing her viral commentary to her “big mouth.”
“Listen, I feel bad about that,” she explained of her quip that Craig needed a “reality check” after he made negative remarks about the James Bond franchise. “That was a morning where I was all caffeine-d up, as I usually am at 7 a.m., and I was …scrolling through my Twitter, and I was seeing all this stuff about the refugees fleeing and drowning in the ocean. And then [an article about his comments] was in my Twitter feed also.”
The 45-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star added that she “impulsively” retweeted the link with her comment, “not with anger about it.”
“I just kind of run my mouth, that’s who I am,” the actress added. “Someone needs to be authentic. And I love Daniel Craig, and no one loves those Bond movies more than me.”
In an interview with Time Out London, Craig, 47, had remarked that he’d “rather break this glass and slash [his] wrists” than do another Bond film in the near future.
“I’m over it at the moment. We’re done,” he told the magazine. “All I want to do is move on.”
Pompeo was quick to backtrack on her comments after a fan pointed out to her that Craig’s quotes might have been taken out of context.
“You are absolutely right!” the actress tweeted at the time. “I certainly have been there.”
