Portia de Rossi Talks About Her Anorexia and Body Struggles on Ellen DeGeneres' Show

Video: Portia de Rossi Shares Her Struggles With Wife Ellen

Portia de Rossi has spent the past few weeks promoting her new book Unbearable Lightness, which details her past body struggles and coming to terms with her sexuality while trying to launch a Hollywood career. After an interview with Oprah, Portia appeared on wife Ellen DeGeneres’ show to share more details, including how a modelling stint at age 12 led to an eating disorder that at one stage saw her weight plummet to 37kg. In a cute moment near the end of the video, Portia says, “When I look in the mirror now I realise that this is what I’m supposed to be . . . I don’t think that I’m perfect at all,” to which Ellen replies, “I do.” Watch the interview, as well as Portia answering viewers’ questions, when you read more.
