Ellen Pompeo has denied rumors that she is planning to quit Grey's Anatomy in the near future.
The actress, who plays Meredith Grey, explained that she is considering leaving the show when her contract expires at the end of the eighth season.
"I haven't said that I'm moving on," she told Extra. "I've said that when my contract is up after season eight [in two years] I would probably not renew."
She continued: "I think I've told all the stories that I can tell as Meredith Grey. I mean, who knows. I never say never to anything. But I've told a lot of Meredith Grey stories and I think the world has had a lot of Meredith Grey. So I don't know how much more of Meredith Grey the world wants."
Ellen Pompeo is stepping beyond her surgeon's role in the hit medical drama to encourage women to make their own health a priority to prevent cancer.
The disease affects one in three women in the United States during their lifetime. Pompeo, a new mother and the daughter of a cancer survivor, said women are vital to battling and stopping the illness.
"Cancer is something that touches everyone's lives," Pompeo told Reuters. "Women are busy taking care of other people. This is about choosing yourself."
Together with the American Cancer Society, Pompeo will launch a national campaign on Tuesday about cancer prevention.
