—Portia de Rossi to reporters at the TCA Winter Press Tour, about her character on the upcoming ABC comedy Better Off Ted
PORTIA DE ROSSI WANTS YOU TO BE ANIMAL-FREE Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres had a completely vegan wedding, so it's not a surprise that both women follow the diet themselves. Ellen is a more recent convert, and Portia told reporters at TCA last week that they've both changed a lot since they began dating:
When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, ‘Why is a fox any more important than a cow?’ … We took that idea and went all the way with it. We are doing what we can.
Fashion being just as important to the women as what they eat, Portia is going to be launching her own vegan shoe line.
Considering Natalie Portman's vegan shoes didn't fare so well, I wonder how Portia's will be much different. I also wonder how she will have the time, considering she has a new TV show and is also (hopefully) going to be working on the Arrested Development movie in the near future. She's currently starring in the newly released film, Ambition to Meaning: Finding Your Life's Purpose.
Maybe she'll name the pumps after herself and a special sneaker line or other sensible shoes after her wifey.
