We mentioned last month that the usually healthy-looking Ellen DeGeneres seemed a bit off.
The talk show queen was looking way too skinny!
Now, we find out that Ellen and
wife girlfriend Portia de Rossi have become vegans.
De Rossi opened up in a recent interview and revealed that the two of them went meat and dairy free last year.
Portia says, "We just made that shift in our lives. The benefit of it is weight loss. For her more than me. Her body responded to it very well. It is amazing."
We hope that's not the reason why Ellen looks so thin. Girlfriend needs a couple of burgers and milkshakes, fast! Or at least more protein shakes!
Portia adds, "We are just both very happy. It feels like such a compassionate choice. We are such animal lovers, why stop short of cows and chickens? It didn't make any sense. When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, 'Why is a fox any more important than a cow?' We took that idea and went all the way with it. We are doing what we can."
Someone needs to up Ellen's caloric intake, though!
