EXCLUSIVE: Sara Ramirez on Turning 35: "You Couldn't Pay Me to Go Back!"

Grey’s Anatomy star, Sara Ramirez turns the big 3-5 on August 31st, but the Mexican actress isn’t complaining about getting older. “When I was younger, the thirties seemed so far away, and now it’s here and I’m on my way to 40,” says Ramirez. “But with what I know now, you couldn’t pay me to go back! It’s so great. I’m not one of those actors who lies about their age. I’m thrilled to be turning 35 and I’m grateful to be alive and well and healthy.”

So how exactly does Sara plan to celebrate her milestone birthday? “It’s on a Tuesday so I might be working,” she explains.
“A few weeks ago, Jessica [Capshaw] had her birthday on the Grey’s set and I wanted to make sure she had a good time so I got her a couple of birthday cakes to celebrate with the cast and crew,” says Ramirez. “Sometimes it can be fun to celebrate your birthday at work— you bring in a cake and everybody gets to have some sugar and we all crash together and cry about it!”
“I also have a friend flying in from New York this weekend and I’m planning to hang out with him and his wife and their kids, so I’m really happy about that,’ adds Ramirez.
Cheers to another great year for Sara. ¡Feliz cumpleaños!
