It seems like every couple in Hollywood is expecting a baby right now. Will Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi be next on that bumpin' list?
PORTIA DE ROSSI
Attempting to keep it private, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake tied the knot last week. Now, she's made it perfectly clear she's changing her last name to match his. So, what other celebs have taken their new partner's name?
While some couples may take eachother out to dinner, daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and gorgeous wife Portia de Rossi celebrate each Anniversary in one of the cutest ways we've ever heard... ever!
The saying goes that blood is thicker than water, and in Portia de Rossi's case, it definitely proved true. The Arrested Development alum writes in her recent memoir that she and older brother Michael Rogers became closer than ever when her then-husband cheated...with Rogers' then-wife!
By Krissy Dolor Forbes may be a money magazine, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t love celebrities, too! Last week, the magazine reported on a recent study conducted by the University of Abertay Dundee in Scotland, which found that as women earn money and financial independence, their attraction to good-looking, older men increases. In addition, these women hold a man’s looks to a higher standard. The university has dubbed this “The George Clooney effect.”
Following the ups and downs of lives of celebrity relationships is often like watching a real-life romantic comedy, or, in some cases, a romantic drama. From marriages going combust (Sandra Bullock and Jesse James) to new celeb couples (Blake Lively and Ryan Gosling), and from quick flings (Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner) to enduring love stories (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner), there was no shortage of tabloid-worthy plot twists this year. And although there are so many celeb pairs to choose from, we’ve managed to chisel out who we think were the most fascinating couples of 2010.
In Portia de Rossi's new tell-all, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, the 37-year-old gay actress, who's now married to Ellen DeGeneres, reveals how years spent struggling with her sexuality tore her apart. Portia, who for awhile, denied the fact that she was a lesbian and even stayed in a marriage to a man for 3 years, says that trying to hide her true self led to an eating disorder that nearly killed her.
Portia de Rossi is hoping to change her name for the second time in her life, although for much more celebratory reasons than the first. This time around the Australian actress wants to take the last name of her spouse, the loved comedian and host Ellen DeGeneres, 53, and has filed at the L.A. Superior Court to become Portia Lee James DeGeneres.
Today, PopEater announced that—in a poll asking readers for their favorite celebrity couple of the year—the votes resoundingly poured in for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Which is no surprise to us. We've always wished that the dance-loving, sneakers-wearing DeGeneres was our BFF, and we've had a not-so-secret girlcrush on de Rossi since Ally McBeal. Their journey to the altar has also been a source inspiration and joy and, to put it simply, their love story gives us the warm fuzzies. But are they the only couple we'd like to plan a couple date with? Who else would we invite to our place for wine, cheese, and horror flicks?
California's Supreme Court has voted 6 to 1 to uphold the controversial Proposition 8 addendum to California Law. The law narrows the definition of marriage to a single man and a single woman. The bill was part of the November 4th ballot and featured millions and millions of dollars in donations from both sides of the gay marriage issue. Luckily for gay couples already married, they're grandfather in.
Americans seem to have a soft-spot for sheilas and blokes from the land down under. Maybe it's the accents, or the fun-loving attitude that draws us in, but we think it might be the ridiculous hotness of these actors that keeps us coming back for more. So without further ado, here's YourTango's take on the sexiest actors and actresses working in Hollywood today.
The celebs were up to their usual breakup, make-up, make-out, freak-out routine in 2008. But a few celebrities had particularly noteworthy years and we got Paul McCartney, Anne Hathaway, Britney Spears, Jay-Z, Eliot Spitzer, Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay Lohan, Ellen Degeneres and Madonna all on board.
