Portia De Rossi Talks Anorexia On Wife Ellen’s Show

If this clip from Portia de Rossi‘s appearance on her wife’s talk show tomorrow doesn’t make you tear up, your heart is made of stone. Portia opened up about her struggle with anorexia, which had her weighing only 82 lbs. at one point. “I don’t think anyone can really understand what it’s like to suffer from an eating disorder unless they’ve actually gone through it themselves,” Portia said. “I wanted to tell the story from the perspective of the person suffering and not a healthy perspective. I wanted to go back to that dark, horrible time and why I thought I was doing the right thing, why I thought I was doing the healthy thing.” When Ellen DeGeneres asks Portia what she thinks when she looks in the mirror now, Portia says, “I don’t think I’m perfect,” and you can just hear the love in Ellen’s voice when she says, “I do.” Alright, I’m crying again.
