Denzel Washington 'doesn't recall' on-set dispute with Ellen Pompeo

In September, the actress, who leads the medical drama as Meredith Grey, revealed to former co-star Patrick Dempsey that she argued with Washington when he guest-directed the episode The Sound of Silence, which aired in February 2016. Pompeo claimed that the Training Day star called her out when she improvised a line during an emotional confrontation scene and "went ham on (her) a*s".
