Arrested Development Star Portia de Rossi Is Quitting Acting

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi were left shocked on The Ellen Show on Wednesday.

"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. "You decided you didn't want to do anything more with acting", she said of her wife of almost 10 years.

"I just think it's wonderful, 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'".

Fans of the show Arrested Development will know Portia de Rossi as the slightly immature, flirty and smug Lindsay Bluth Fünke.

"He seemed understanding and totally got it and we had a great conversation and then he wrote me into five episodes", she said. "Don't know how it happened".

Portia is now focusing on developing her new business, an art venture named General Public, in which she collaborates with artists to create their original works as Synographs, or textured prints, and sells them online direct to consumers. And then he wrote me into five episodes!

"We're just really good friends and we talk about everything, and we never ever, ever lie to each other, like, not even the tiniest lies", she said. "I don't want to regret not trying something".

"She's just so awesome!"

De Rossi, who is best known for her roles in Arrested Development, Scandal, and Ally McBeal announced on her wife, Ellen DeGeneres' show, The Ellen Show, that she is retiring from acting and ready for a new challenge, says OK Magazine.
