Portia de Rossi Reveals She Has Quit Acting

Portia de Rossi Tells Wife Ellen DeGeneres Why She Quit Acting

The Arrested Development star said she decided she wanted to work on something "challenging and different". She left Australia at the age of 21 to pursue a career in acting, snapping up roles in films such as Scream 2 and Stigmata.

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

De Rossi explained how she asked Shonda Rhimes to be written out of Scandal and told Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz that she wouldn't return for Season 5.

Portia then went on to explain that she made the decision about a year and a half ago, when Shonda Rhimes chose to cut her character from political thriller series Scandal.
