Portia de Rossi makes a lovely cover girl for the May/June 2013 issue of L.A. Confidential.
It’s hard to believe the gorgeous actress is 40-years-old. As she explained it, “I was like, 40? Who cares? Then I woke up the next morning and I went, ‘F***, I’m 40!’ All of a sudden the birthday party’s over: What does it mean to be 40? It’s an interesting milestone because it does ask for a little self-reflection. It asks where you’ve been, are you happy with what you’ve done, where do you want to go, and what do you want to change?”
That doesn’t mean she spends much time looking back. “I’m never going to look the way I looked when I was 20, and I’m kind of happy about that. I look different, but I’m also growing into the kind of sophisticated-looking woman that I’ve always wanted to be.”
The actress also spoke about her marriage to the hilarious Ellen DeGeneres. “We were together for four solid years before we got married, but the minute we said, ‘I do,’ the minute we stood up in front of our parents and our friends and committed to each other, our relationship changed. I don’t think people understand how important that little ceremony is and what if actually does to people.”
