Portia de Rossi had quit acting prior to 'Arrested Development' return

Portia de Rossi had quit acting prior to 'Arrested Development' return”

De Rossi says her foray into the art world started with her company General Public which she hopes will bring more people to art.

The Arrested Development star said she decided she wanted to work on something "challenging and different".

"You aren't a big fan of doing press and talk shows, so thank you for being here", Ellen told her spouse of almost 10 years.

"I just think it's awesome, too, because all you've ever known your entire life is acting, that's all you've known, and you took a chance, and you decided 'I'm gonna try a whole new thing that I've never done'".

Of course, he chose to write her character into a few episodes anyway, so the fifth season of Arrested Development, in which she plays Lindsay Bluth, will be her last acting job.

"I made this decision about 18 months ago", de Rossi said of her retirement from acting. "Don't know how it happened, but, yes, I am on Season 5".

You can see the interview between her and Ellen below. We had a really great conversation and then he wrote me into five episodes.

De Rossi, who has been married to DeGeneres since 2008, said the secret to their union is that they are best friends.

In a chat with wife on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, former actress Portia De Rossi revealed that it was because she can not handle the media and paparazzi that she gave up acting.

We just wish it didn't have to end.

"And she's the only person I want to hang out with".

Portia says she left the hit show Scandal (which just aired its series finale) as she approached her 45th birthday.
