Ellen Pompeo’s grand Italian adventure got off to a rough start.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star, who’s vacationing in Europe with her children, had her purse snatched “right under my nose!!”
“I blame the rose!! But Grazia to whoever stole it for dropping it on the street exactly intact,” she wrote on Instagram with a photo of Italian police.
“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.”
The 48-year-old actress took care of the problem herself, but co-star Giacomo Gianniotti, who was born in Rome and speaks fluent Italian, offered his services.
