Portia de Rossi

In a revealing new interview, Portia de Rossi has opened up about her struggle to come to terms with her sexuality.

The Australian actress was extremely nervous about coming out eight years ago, telling  Amanda de Cadenet that there were no notable famous lesbian figures she could look up to…

“I just didn’t want to be a lesbian… I’d never met one for a start and I just thought that they were strange and that they hated men and they were very serious and I had these ridiculous images in my head and then there were no out celebrities or politicians or anybody that I could look to and go, ‘Oh, I could be like that.’…

There was just nobody that I could say, ‘I could date her and I want to be like her’… I just kind of thought I don’t want to live like this, I don’t have to, I don’t need to, I just shut down the emotional life.”
