Ellen DeGeneres Covers 'Shape' May 2010

Ellen DeGeneres Covers 'Shape' May 2010

Ellen DeGeneres is white hot on the cover of Shape magazine’s May 2010 issue.

Here’s what the 52-year-old entertainer had to share:

On wife Portia de Rossi: “She loves me no matter what. Whenever I feel bad about myself, or if I’m in a period where I’m not working out, she’s constantly telling me that she doesn’t notice, that I look beautiful. She’ll say, ‘I think you could gain 10 more pounds.’ She would rather have me heavier than thinner, and she really hates that I ever doubt myself. She loves how I look. She wants me to be happy and never think about it.”

On her exercise routine growing up: “I was very much a tomboy. I loved sports, running around, playing tennis. I learned golf in high school because my mother remarried and we moved [from Louisiana] to a really small town in Texas. I had no friends, so I learned to play golf, because you can do that by yourself.”

On how she stays fit now: “I first started doing power yoga in L.A., which really makes no sense. Power yoga? It’s the opposite of what it should be. Yoga should calm you down!”

    Always lovely.

    Always so well put together, yet casual.

    Kudos, not many can wear white head-to-toe, as Ellen does awfully often.

    I love Ellen. She’s smart, funny, kind and genuine. What a balanced chick. Love that she has Portia.

  • sandie

    Nothing against her but she should not be on that cover, what a turn off, the cover should be more attractive but Ellen is too masculine looking, is Shape mag that desperate?

    @sandie: Very superficial. It’s not about how someone looks – it’s about who the person is. True beauty comes from within. And Ellen is beautiful.
