- When asked about the incident by Variety, he sidestepped the question but added: "It's all good."
As previously reported by Insider, Pompeo was speaking with her former "Grey's Anatomy" costar Patrick Dempsey on her "Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo" podcast about the day she and Washington clashed on set.
"Denzel went ham on my ass," she said last September. "He was like, 'I'm the director. Don't you tell him what to do.'"

Pompeo, who portrays fictional doctor Meredith Grey on the long-running ABC medical drama, said she had a fight with the "Training Day" star after changing a line of dialogue in the script.
"And I was like, 'Listen motherfucker, this is my show,'" she said. "'This is my set. Who are you telling? You barely know where the bathroom is.'"
Eventually, Pompeo said the two got over their creative differences with the actress even describing herself as a big fan of Washington. Still, she added, "he doesn't know shit about directing TV."
It looks like for now, Washington's directing endeavors will be centered around movies but preferably not ones he's starring in. His latest directorial work, "A Journal for Jordan," starring Michael B. Jordan and Chanté Adams, is out now in theaters.
It centers on the onscreen couple as Jordan's character is deployed to Iraq. While there, he starts a journal for his young son.
"I never enjoyed headlining and directing," Washington told Variety. "I acted in the movies because I needed to in order to get the money to direct them."
He continued: "So now, for me, this feels like the first film I've directed because I'm not in it. That's the way I prefer it."
