Ellen DeGeneres Covers 'Good Housekeeping' October 2011

Ellen DeGeneres covers Good Housekeeping magazine’s October 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (September 13).

Here’s what the 53-year-old talk show host had to share:

On the accomplishment she is most proud of: “I’m glad I’m funny. I’m glad I make people happy, because that’s very important. But I’m proud to be known as a kind person.”

On comedy as a source of comfort, after a tough childhood: “I was quiet as a kid and wasn’t funny until I was a little older. Then I remember being funny, because I remember people laughing. But I was more of the sensitive type, taking care of injured animals I found. But I was aware of all the stuff nobody in my family was talking about. Everything was fine all the time. I was like, Really? It doesn’t seem like it. I watch people’s behavior and notice things. I think that’s why I became a comedian.”

On her positive attitude: “Well, I’m definitely happier than I’ve ever been. I assume tomorrow I’ll be happier than today, because things are great. I have a great career and I have wonderful fans who really are supportive and loyal—because I’m not hiding anything from them. So, on the spectrum of happiness, I’m pretty high up there.”
