Degeneres Saved Lover From Anorexia

Hollywood actress PORTIA DE ROSSI credits her girlfriend ELLEN DeGENERES with saving her from anorexia. The Australian-born star suffered with the eating disorder since she was a teenager - and the illness intensified when she was cast as NELL PORTER in hit US TV show ALLY MCBEAL. And de Rossi claims it was thanks to DEGENERES that she was finally able to be honest about her eating disorder which almost killed her. De Rossi says, "Learning to be more honest is probably the biggest influence that Ellen has had on me. We've talked a lot about this, which is a big thing for me. "Ellen has never really worried about her weight and is more on the side of feeling angry that for women to be perceived as beautiful, they need to be skinny."
