I didn’t decide to become anorexic.
It snuck up on me disguised as a healthy diet, a professional attitude.’

PORTIA DE ROSSI weighed only 82 pounds when she finally collapsed on set playing her first lead in a Hollywood film. On the outside she was thin, blond and successful, but on the inside, she was literally dying.

Even as she rose to fame in the hit television shows Ally McBeal and Arrested Development, Portia was starving herself and bingeing, all the while terrified that her sexuality would also be exposed in the tabloids. In this searing, unflinchingly honest book she captures the complex emotional truths of living with her eating disorder and being in the closet.

From her lowest point, Portia began the painful climb back to health and honesty, falling in love with and marrying Ellen DeGeneres, and emerging as an outspoken, articulate advocate for gay rights and women’s health issues. Unbearable Lightness is a remarkable book, for all those who sometimes feel at war with themselves or their bodies, and a story of hope.
