Biography

American actress and talented comedienne with a hit TV show, "Ellen," in which she came out as a lesbian on 4/30/1997. In an interview with Diane Sawyer for 20/20, she said that she had tried sex with a couple of men and found that she didn't like it. Ellen met Anne Hecht on Oscar night, 3/23/1997 and began an immediate, impassioned love affair; their affection and openness made the two women veritable poster-girls for gay pride in Hollywood and elsewhere. After 3 1/2 years together, Degeneres and Heche separated on 8/20/2000.

The second child of Christian Science converts who separated when she was a teenager, Ellen moved to Texas with her mom then briefly attended the university of New Orleans before embarking on a string of off jobs. With the encouragement of friends and fans, she performed comedy at a coffee house amateur hour, then landed a job emceeing at a local comedy club. She won a Showtime contest in 1982, leading to her series.

As Ellen's show began to focus more on lesbian issues, it began to lose the interest of mainstream viewers and was cancelled in 1998. She continued, however, to be funny on the comedy circuit and clubs and returned to prime time in September 2001 as star and executive producer. Her credits include a recent documentary about her 36-city stand-up tour and several guest shots on TV.

Ellen was in a relationship with Alexandra Hedison from 2000 until November 2004 when they separated. Shortly thereafter DeGeneres developed a new love relationship with Portia de Rossi, formerly of "Ally McBeal." Their relationship became known on December 1, 2004 at the Los Angeles "VH1 Big in '04" Awards ceremony. They married on August 16, 2008 in Los Angeles, CA.
