Born Mandy Rodgers just outside of Geelong, Portia de Rossi is one of Hollywood's most intriguing and talked about stars. Finding early success in the Australian film Sirens, Portia went on to starin the hit television series Ally McBeal, as well as the cult hit Arrested Development, launching her Hollywood career - and eventual high-profile marriage to Hollywood mega-star Ellen DeGeneres. Butdespite her success, Portia was plagued by self doubt, depression, anorexia and bulimia. Starving herself, involved in a fake heterosexual relationship and terrified of being ‘outed' by the press, Portialived a Hollywood nightmare for years. Shockingly candid, outrageously funny, self-deprecating and no holds barred, Portia de Rossi's autobiography is a frank and funny account of her not-so-perfect Hollywood life.
Thank you Porsche for writing so honestly. I've been struggling for 30 yrs with food/weight, this has shown me there is a very fine line between obesity and anorexia. Great read.
I purchased and read this book in 2013 but have just re read it. It's filled with so much detail and depth I am blown away by her ability to go there and share it with the world. I am sure revisiting those days could not have been easy but I and I'm sure many others appreciate it to no end. Such a good and powerful read.
Thanks Portia, I've never had an eating disorder nor been terrified of being sexually confused, although I am. Your book gave an insight that was wonderfully honest and scarily insightful. I'm sure this will help others as it helped me. Is there anything you know that could help with being asexual?
