It’s been nearly 13 years since “Grey’s Anatomy” debuted on ABC, and star Ellen Pompeo is ready to get paid.

That’s the takeaway from a new interview in the Hollywood Reporter in which the actress detailed the path to understanding her worth, demanding it and how series creator Shonda Rhimes led the way. 

“Decide what you think you're worth and then ask for what you think you're worth. Nobody's just going to give it to you,” Rhimes told Pompeo. It was advice the actress took to heart.

Dylan Farrow took her allegations against Woody Allen to morning television on Wednesday, speaking out against her adoptive father in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

“Why shouldn’t I want to bring him down?” Farrow told “This Morning’s” Gayle King. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?”

Farrow has long claimed that Allen molested her when she was 7, accusations that have been sidelined over the years while the revered filmmaker’s work proliferated.

Actress and Time’s Up advocate Michelle Williams is reportedly engaged to financier Andrew Youmans.

That’s according to a Wednesday report from Us Weekly citing multiple inside sources. Williams’ rep would not comment on the report, declining to confirm or deny the engagement when reached by The Times on Wednesday.

The “All the Money in the World” star sparked engagement rumors on the Golden Globes red carpet earlier this month, where she sported a heart-shaped diamond ring on that finger. Williams — accompanied by #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke — reportedly brushed off requests about the ring, simply calling the bauble “beautiful jewelry.”

Oh, I am the luckiest old broad on two feet. I have no idea what's happening. At my age, to be working this much, I am so deeply grateful. And everybody says, 'I keep seeing you. Will you go away already?' But as long as they keep asking, I'm not about to say no.

Model and Twitter hero Chrissy Teigen is protesting a non-disclosure agreement that could penalize U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney for speaking out against Dr. Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team physician who Maroney claimed sexually abused her.

Teigen, an outspoken social media personality and wife of musician John Legend, offered to pay the potential $100,000 fine the two-time Olympic medalist could face for breaking the NDA she reached in her settlement with the organization.

“The entire principle of this should be fought - an NDA to stay quiet about this serial monster with over 140 accusers, but I would be absolutely honored to pay this fine for you, McKayla,” Teigen tweeted on Tuesday, sharing a headline about the potential fine.
