Yahoo! News reports that Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo thinks this country is "teaching young girls that ... they should be focusing on rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing." The 37-year-old actress, who is swears she is naturally super-skinny, says, "I just worry about the girls who look up to me — I don't want them to think I starve myself or don't eat." Her concerns come at a time when Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton are splashed all over the news. "What are we doing to this younger generation? It's not very responsible." We agree! And yet what can we do about it? "I just think the media should take this country in a different direction," she suggests. Yes! The media! Wait, are we the media? Does that mean we have to stop posting pictures of Paris Hilton in tears?
