Portia de Rossi explains why she quit acting (with one exception)

Portia de Rossi explains why she quit acting (with one exception)

"I kind of knew what acting would look like for me for the next 10, 20 years, so I chose to quit and start a business", the star shared, adding that while she tried to explain her decision to Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz at the time, he had other plans for her.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi were left shocked on The Ellen Show on Wednesday.

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

This might come as a surprise to some, especially considering that the trailer for Arrested Development season 5 features de Rossi reprising her role as Lindsay Bluth, which is good news for fans of the show.

She says that she actually quit months ago and told the creator of Arrested Development that, but it didn't really stop them from casting her.

"Don't know how it happened but I am on Season 5". "I thought that I would start an art curation and publishing company that I call General Public and we print paintings, basically".

But then, Hurwitz wrote her into five more episodes, and here we are.

"No. What it means is they want you to do season six", Ellen joked.

"We're just really good friends and we talk about everything, and we never ever, ever lie to each other, like, not even the tiniest lies", she said.

"She's just so awesome!"
