Portia de Rossi Talks Coming Out

Portia de Rossi chats about coming out as a gay woman in this video from The Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday (November 1).

The 37-year-old actress shared that growing up, she’d had to hide her feelings of wanting to date other women.

“Having to hide something like that just ruined me,” Portia said. “It really, really killed me because even though I’d gotten to a point where I wasn’t ashamed of it anymore, I was doing it for financial reasons. I was doing it so I’d have a career because there were no lesbian TV actresses or actresses ever in history!”

Portia also shared that her wife, Ellen DeGeneres, motivated her to come out.
