Ellen DeGeneres to Portia de Rossi: You're Perfect!

Ellen DeGeneres to Portia de Rossi: You're Perfect!

Portia de Rossi sits down with her wife on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Thursday (November 4).

The 35-year-old actress chatted about her new book, Unbearable Lightness, and her struggle with an eating disorder.

“When I look in the mirror today I really do accept myself from head to toe. This is exactly the weight I’m supposed to be. I realized it’s taking me a long time; you can’t fit a size 8 foot into a size 6 shoe,” Portia said. “It’s just not going to happen. So when I look in the mirror I realize this is what I’m supposed to be…I don’t think that I’m perfect at all.”

“I do!” Ellen replied.

“Ah, come on. I accept the fact that I’m not perfect and that’s the difference,” Portia said. “I would never ever jeopardize my health or my sanity to try and get those thin thighs that I was always after.”

    That’s the real deal. Im lucky to also have a partner who feels that way. Even after having major surgery (for medical reasons) my husband smiled and told me I looked beautiful. I wish for everyone to experience that at least once.

    I can’t wait to watch this. Ellen is sooo funny. Why isn’t she on late night TV?

    Portia still seems so skinny though. She used to be a lot heavier when she was acting in Australia, quite a voluptuous and well endowed girl. She might not be anorexic anymore but I don’t think she is at her natural weight at all but at least she is talking about it and that is a good sign that she is getting healthier. Her and Ellen are a cute couple.
