Ellen Pompeo was in Rome with her family over the weekend, and it turns out she wasn't the only one to have the bright idea! Alicia Keys was also spotted in Rome over the weekend, but with a young friend instead of her husband, Swizz Beatz, and son, Egypt. While Ellen, her husband, Chris Ivery, and her daughter, Stella, spent time playing on a big carousel, Alicia and friend posed with costumed Roman soldiers and horses. But it seems it was all a coincidence, as the two star-studded groups appeared not to be together.
Ellen has been busy working on the 10th season of Grey's Anatomy, which she confessed had been a bumpy ride with the highly publicized departures of former costars Isaiah Washington and Katherine Heigl. Alicia, on the other hand, is still on tour for her album Girl on Fire. She's also recently tried her hand at film production with The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete. And yet, despite both stars' busy schedules, they both ended up halfway across the world at the same time! Check out the cute pictures from the respective Roman holidays.
