When Portia knew Ellen was the one

“(I knew Ellen was the one) when I first laid eyes on her. But it took me three years to actually tell her how I felt about her because I was on Ally McBeal at the time and wasn’t living as an openly gay person. I was closeted and very, very afraid that if I talked about being gay it would be the end of my career. So I wasn’t about to date the most famous lesbian in the world.”
