Portia de Rossi: 'Unbearable Lightness' Signing

Portia de Rossi hosts a book signing for “Unbearable Lightness” at Borders on Wednesday (November 10) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old actress reveals that she weighed only 82 pounds when she collapsed on the set of the Hollywood film in which she was playing her first leading role. On the outside she was thin and blond, glamorous and successful. On the inside, she was literally dying.

In the book, Portia de Rossi captures the complex emotional truth of what it is like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action.

She’s so beautiful and talented. It’s so great that she shared her experience with people.

She looks great!

The hair, the blazers and the boots!
I like the title of her book too, the unbearable lightness. Ellen and she musty be wonderful together.

# 4

she is a beautiful woman and she is SO brave for telling her story. I hope it helps other women out there with an eating disorder.

I am so happy for her and Ellen, they are a wonderful couple

What’s the point of dating a woman, who sure must be nice – have nothing against Ellen – but looks, dresses, moves like a man ? the same with gay men dating effeminate men… They do prove that no matter what there always has to be a female and a male in a couple, whether they are real, or mimicked.

For some reason I find her a lot prettier these days than when she was on Ally McBeal. And I love what she’s wearing here.

@Sian:

The reason is called plastic surgery. Can you add the years that have passed since that show was on?

has it ever crossed anyone’s mind that she may be USING Ellen for money? First, she seduced Ellen when Ellen was still with her gf at that time. Then after they got together, this ***** never had to work for another day again…and smart, she made sure Ellen “married” her!

@shallow hal: Uh, one of my favourite shows, Better Off Ted, she is a main character. She’s been in films and television for quite a long time, and frankly, considering how outrageously judgemental our society is, if she was going to use somebody for cash, why not a man? Wouldn’t that be the smart thing to do? Or better yet, someone worth more than Ellen, who is rich, but when they got together, had only just started her show, and was not yet as big as a tycoon as she is now? And why the hell did you put married in quotation marks, they have been a couple for 6 years, and are legally married!
