Portia de Rossi's Quotes

  • In high school I had sex with girls quite a few times. They were straight women who I convinced to jump in the sack with me.
  • I'm living by example by continuing on with my career and having a full, rich life, and I am incidentally gay.
  • I love being able to wear dresses and clothes that make me feel feminine and beautiful, and I love the fact that I don't have to all the time; I can wear a tank and jeans.
  • My feelings for Ellen overrode all of my fear about being out as a lesbian. I had to be with her, and I just figured I'd deal with the other stuff later.
  • Everyone is their own kind of lesbian. To think there's a certain way to dress or present yourself in the world is just one more stereotype we have to fit into.
