Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were quite the stylish couple at Wednesday's Finding Dory premiere in Hollywood, California, but the daytime talk show host revealed to ET that while she was thrilled to be voicing the lovable fish again, she doesn't take her work home with her.
ET's Cameron Mathison asked DeGeneres, who was photographed holding hands with de Rossi at the event, if her 43-year-old wife ever asks her to do the voice of Dory when they're home. "I will be honest, no," she quipped. "That would be very weird. I think I would leave her. That would be the end of our relationship."
Keeping the joke going, DeGeneres added that it would be "horrible" if her wife of eight years asked her to do the voice. "She's not a child. ...[She's not like,] 'Talk whale to me! Dance for me!' She doesn't do any of those things," she said. "That would be bad if she said dance and talk whale at the same time."
The 58-year-old star may not do her Dory voice when she's off the clock, but she's super proud of this film. "It's so great and it's so good and I can't wait to see it again because there are so many little clever lines," she gushed. "It goes so fast that you kind of miss some of the things. I recommend seeing it like 10 or 11 times, because you really need to see it a lot to get the little nuances -- even 15 times. You have to see it more than once to really get it."
