Ellen DeGeneres invited Portia de Rossi on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to dish about her new book and self-image.
Portia's first book Unbearable Lightness reveals the actress' private struggle with her body image and even contained some information so secret that Portia's spouse Ellen even wasn't privy to it.
"There's a lot of stuff that I actually didn't know," said Ellen. "I mean, I knew a little bit but I didn't know the details."
Portia confessed to the host that she wanted to personally write every word of her book, feeling that only someone who has suffered from an eating disorder can reveal what the experience is like.
"I wanted to go back to that dark, horrible time and explain why I thought I was doing the right thing," said Portia.
Today the author has a new perspective on her weight and body type, explaining that she has imperfections but has learned to accept her flaws.
