Born on January 26, 1958 in Louisiana, Ellen DeGeneres is a famous American actress and television presenter. If it was through stand-up that the young woman began her career, television caught up with her very quickly. In 1996, the actress was given the reins of her own television series called Ellen. During the episodes, she does not hesitate to reveal her homosexuality to the viewers who, from then on, become attached to this frank and simple woman. In 2003, she began hosting her own talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

In her private life, Ellen DeGeneres had a relationship with actress Anne Heche, before the latter left her after three years to marry a cameraman. Annihilated by the break-up, the hostess is struggling to recover from this failure. After a depression, she falls in love with actress and photographer Alexandra Hedison, from whom she separates some time later. In 2004, Ellen DeGeneres struck up a romance with Portia de Rossi, the actress known for her role in the series Ally McBeal. The two women joined forces in 2008, as soon as the State of California allowed same-sex marriage.
