Happiness is a Choice

Advocate cover - Portia de Rossi
Portia de Rossi knew her "quiet life" was over when she fell for Ellen DeGeneres. Now, with a new book and a passionate taste for politics, she’s ready to step forward as the first lady of our fight for marriage equality.

She has that least likely of all Hollywood endings — a marriage everyone believes is the real deal. "It’s one thing to have attention; it’s one thing to stand for something," she says. "But unless it’s backed up with genuine happiness, I think people can sense that it’s not worth celebrating."

Whenever anyone asks De Rossi about marriage equality — and, grateful for whatever "little tiny platform" she’s given, she hopes they will — she reveals herself to be an impeccably prepared spokeswoman, a perfectly poised first lady of advocacy. Further proof will come in March when the Human Rights Campaign will acknowledge De Rossi with its Visibility Award at a ceremony in Los Angeles.

A year and a half after their 2008 wedding, she and DeGeneres are still that almost obnoxiously adorable couple. If anything, getting married has only made them more so. Even the paparazzi seem to buy into their love story, mostly leaving the two alone. "To think that a married gay couple is considered boring and normal is fantastic," she says. "Happiness is a choice too. It’s a choice to live in a state of gratitude and to fix what makes you unhappy. Being honest with who you are, being able to go out into the world and show people that you can be successful and be happy and be in a good marriage — it’s important."

She makes another straightforward "case closed" argument for actors coming out, usual Hollywood scare tactics be damned. "People say, 'There are lots of openly gay actors.' And I’m like, who? If everybody I knew that was gay and not being open about it came out, it would make a huge difference to people coming up as young actors in Hollywood. Huge. To producers, to people in casting. I’m sure that when I was with Ellen a lot of people wondered if I could play a straight role convincingly. By having the opportunity, other people can go, 'Oh, that’s OK. It didn’t kill that show. That was believable.'"

In comparison to her wife, at least, "I haven’t said 'I’m gay' that often," she says. Maybe that was true back when the idea of Portia as the femme fatale still cast such a long shadow over her public life.

This is what she has to say now: "Being on Oprah was a very surreal moment — to go from being so closeted and so afraid to talk about my sexuality to sitting with my wife, talking about my wedding and how much I love her. To look out at that audience and see most of the audience crying — Oprah was crying! Life can take so many twists and turns. You can’t ever count yourself out. Even if you’re really afraid at some point, you can’t think that there’s no room for you to grow and do something good with your life."

Portia de Rossi

Since escaping Ally, she’s played unusually complex women on TV, especially the hilariously dysfunctional sister, Lindsay Bluth F√ľnke, on Arrested Development. “We all want a movie to happen,” she says of the persistent development rumors. “Just write it already!”

She also did a long arc on Nip/Tuck as Joely Richardson’s girlfriend. “It was weird playing a lesbian,” she says. “The decision was easy. In fact, I went to Ryan [Murphy] and said, ‘I think it’s important that you get a lesbian to play a lesbian character.’ But it was probably the closest to myself I’ve ever played. There were certain speeches that I would give about how hard it is to be a lesbian, and I would find myself bringing in a certain emotion that I attached to that statement. It was tricky. Was it me, or was it the character?”

I already mentioned that I watched the SI press conference. I noticed that Sir Ben Kingsley is totally kissing up to Marty and Leo. I wonder if he will be as complimentary towards Jake when PoP promo begins? But he seems to be an intelligent man. Mark Ruffalo and Michelle came off as intelligent too. Mark called Michelle "Mel Mel". Isn't it cute?

And I was thinking that PoP can't be that bad if someone like Ben signed to do it. He is a respected actor, I don't think he'd do just anything.


Sir Ben Kingsley already said something nice about Jake, can't remember what exactly.

A lesbian woman playing a lesbian sure is more authentic than a straight woman playing one.
But in the end it's called acting and a good actor can play straight or gay convincingly if s/he is good and dedicated enough.

January 9th, 2008

British actress Helena Bonham Carter is banned from singing songs from musicals to her son - because her partner Tim Burton believes he will "turn gay". The Planet of the Apes star loves to sing classic hits from stage musicals to her four-year-old son Billy - but her choice of song has concerned director Burton.

Carter, 41, explains, "I've always loved musicals. Tim thought I was making Billy gay because that's all I'd sing to him."

Remember one time when Jake was in NY, out and about with Maggie, Peter, Ramona and Reese? Someone mentioned they saw the kids (plural), but Deacon and Ava were in California with their father.

Was that when they were at DUMBO with Naomi


Probably. But I remember kids being mentioned when it could have only been Ramona, since Reese's kids were with their dad.

He does have a kid, he was papped with Maggie with him during the infamous breast-feeding pics. His kid and Ramona must be around the same age.

The actor, who BTW is friended on Naomis FB was involved with some actress/photographer for awhile. They split up after the baby was born. Someone found a pic where both she and Maggie were pregnant at the same time, I think the actor is a friend of Peter's.

'My favorite actors are people who I don't know anything about, and I can project any characters onto them,' he says. 'They focus on their work and then go live their lives with the people they love.'"

I thought the point Queerty made about Boner being able to avoid questions if he wanted was very interesting. That is of course true, but I hadn't thought about it. Yes, the not talking about his personal life is a bit of a copout since he couldn't be forced to talk about the details if he just admitted he has a partner and kids.

But boy, still a world of difference between him and most other stars, and fans won't be disappointed that they were lied to. I seem to recall a lot of Aiken fans were angry about the lying more than his coming out.

That pinky ring looks like one of the same pinky rings he used to wear. The only difference now is that he is just wearing one, before he used to wear up to 3: that one, the one with the black diamond and another gold one. The one that looks like it has writing on it , the one at the link I think is the ring his mother gave him it has Latin writing on it I think.

the ring his mother gave him

I presume that was her ring, Naomi didn't buy it for Jake.

Anonymous said...

Why wouldn't his Mother buy him a ring? Mothers buy son's jewelery. It had a Latin inscription on it according to Jake. True, people usually buy pinky rings for other people, people usally buy pink rings for themselves but she may have seeing that at the time he was wearing pinky rings.

Because it is more probable that the ring is small because it belonged to Naomi than that Naomi bought a pinky ring or a ring for little Jakey?

Anonymous said...

It's only probable to you since apparently your mother never bought you any jewelery.

My mother has bought jewelery for my brothers on several occasions, rings, chains with crosses,etc.

Where were you bought up or more importantly, what era did you grow up in?

Jake wore a lot of pinky rings then, most like that's why she bought him something she knew he would wear.

I always thought the Latin inscription was a dig at him for quitting Columbia.

Anyway that ring at the link looks like it has a design or writing on it, it clearly isn't just a gold band that's why I thought that it was one of hos old pinky rings.

If so, maybe he decided to wear it again, the inscription may have some meaning which I forgot.

It's either the same ring and it's just turned around and one side is plain or they are different rings.

When he used to wear up to 3 rings on his left pinky, one looked plain the other looked like it had a design or inscription on it.

He may be back to wearing both but not at the same time.

I seriously doubt Jake will ever come out. Live a version of the glass closet with maybe an occasional date with a girl a popular pap restaurant, yes. After all the effort of bearding for 3 years and trying to build the image of the perfect boyfriend/dinner escort/shopping buddy/gym buddy/step daddy/personal assistant/manny, he wouldn't kill that hetro image by announcing he's gay. It's also obvious that Jake dearly wants that cemented A list status and in all reality, HW will never give that to a gay man. Even if the gay man has a partner and kids, like Bomer. Jake even played by the bearding contract rules and laid low for 2 months so the Chin's PR team could run as many "Reese left Jake so devasted" and "Reese was his soulmate but she had to make the hard decision" BS stories that they wanted.

Anonymous said...

A little bit of info for the uninformed: wearing pinky rings nowadays is hip, probably why Jake used to wear them all the time. Tacky, yes but hip. Also people usually by pinky rings for themselves, like a status symbol.

True in some cases they may have some sentimental reasons and Jake's are not loud and gaudy like what the rappers wear or the guidos (not yet) but it's hip.

Now some of the fangirls hear will run off to post a link to some ancient crap about pinky rings being gay but that isn't the truth, they are worn by gay men and straight men for pretty much the same reasons.

Jake needs to be sen as hip and a chick magnet, unfortunately, he looks like a old man a lot of times including these picture with his goofy looking pal, he laso looks like he smells.

He wore pinky rings all throughout BBM/Jarhead?Proof promotion. He wore them prior to that, look at the pap pics from 2002- 2005, after that he just stopped.

He used to wear a black, thin leather, braclet thingy that I think was buddhhist prayers but he stopped wearing that too, I think his father still wears his.

And don't forget the livestrong braclet he used to wear way before he stareted hanging out with Lance and wore after, then that stopped.

Of course Jake wants to undo what he did with Reeke. Reeke almost killed off his fandom and made him a laughing stock of the internet.

You can bet your ass he was told to drop the jewelry because it looked "too gay", just like he droped the hanging out with boys, the tight t-shirts, etc. And its not just about the gay, but about "maturity". I think Reeke and his pr were also selling him as a mature man who can handle mature roles, and part of that was also ditching jewelry and certain cloths, being seen out in nightclubs....

Well anyway after seeing Jake wear the Latin ring again I can definately say that the ring with all the writing on it everyone thought the beard was wearing, is not the Latin ring. IMO what she did was find a couple gold rings, 1 with obscure engraved writing on it, to make it look they were his old pinky rings.

I think Austin and Sophia will be history as soon as they have their next job lined up. If OTH continues, then they'll have to continue the showmance. It seems the CW require the main stars of their shows to 'date' for publicity.

Also I think it'll depend on what Jake and Austin decide to do after PoP. If they’ll go for a glass closet then the showmance will end, but if they continue closeted and bearding then Sophia is a handy beard. She is a friend and they get along well.

Jake is such a slut!

It seems he is.

Jake said...

But you're probably right about Jake not being the monogamous type.

What?! I am a monogamous type - it's one guy at the time. Well, most of the time.

Anonymous said...

A lot of couples have agreements between them re sex with others. "Faithful" might mean saving a specific act to do only with the SO, while others are ok to do with flings. IMO Jake and Austin are like that especially being actors away from each other a lot and the many opportunities offered.

tbh I sense a tension/awkwardness about these pics here and at Godot, like Jake is cheating on Austin with this guy. IMO he wouldn't have driven the guy if he didn't want Austin to know/see any pics. The guy is either a friend of theirs or a fling that Austin is okay with. Shoot, maybe Austin was waiting at home for them, getting the jacuzzi ready and the 3 glasses of wine poured.

Men are sluts.
Gays are even worse.
Actors? Off the charts.
Male+gay+actor = hopeless

Love is a wonderful thing, but I don't see why would an open relationship or single Jake be a bad thing.

LOL maybe the guy is the nanny.

The nanny's cute little brother.

Is it me or Jake looks like the cat that swallowed the canary?

LOL exactly. But no pussies were involved and it was a male canary aka a cock.

Actors are in the closet because of stupid "he can't be gay" fangirls like you and stupid straight men.

LOL! Dlisted said...

This Oscar-nominated/winning actress has always advocated the crunchy, granola approach to life. Even her official bio boasted that she was raised in a family that valued intellectual pursuits over plastic surgery. That bio changed recently… along with her face. Really, girl, if you’re going to try to be coy about getting plastic surgery, maybe it would be better to not carry your overnight clothes in your hands as you exit a plastic surgery recovery facility. Then again, she’s not the only one in her family who cares more about image than reality. Yes, they’re racking up the dark secrets in that family. (Blind Gossip)

Maggie Gyllenhaal? But for some reason I don't see as her as the type. Maybe she was visiting Jakey who was getting his no-no tightened?

Off the wall guess but the guy might be Jerry Bruckheimer's son.

Bruckheimer's son - Blake Aiden Makar, born 27 May 1988.

Anonymous said...

Jerry's son is Blake Dallan Makar: Born May 27, 1988. Can't find a pic but if you see earlier pics of Jerry he looks like the guy in the car. Guy also looks to be about 22-23. LOL maybe Jake has to date the producer's son to keep getting roles.

El Paso, Texas? What's wrong with LA?

Mother's divorce?

Anonymous said...

8:56 I think so too. Bruck also has a stepdaughter, no age given (prolly because she was under 18?), and IIRC his current marriage is his 2nd one.

Wiki said...

Bruckheimer has been married twice. His first wife was Bonnie Bruckheimer. The couple had one son, Blake Aiden Makar (b. 27 May 1988). He currently lives in Burbank with his second wife, novelist Linda Bruckheimer. He also has one stepdaughter, Alexandra. The couple also owns a 110-acre (0.45 km2) farm in Bloomfield, Kentucky, about 20 miles (32 km) southeast of Louisville, Linda Bruckheimer's hometown, as well as another in Ojai

^^interesting about Ojai. Could Jake have been there so much because he was visiting Jerry or staying at Jerry's house? Reeke wanted us to believe he was living in Ojai with the beard; I bet he wasn't.

Not even the beard was living in Ojai!

Johnny Weir is adorable, he would be perfect for Jake, in case things don't work out with Austin.

I think Johnny is punished for not butching it up (as much as a male ice sckater can). Lots of them have beards.

Anonymous said...

It's one thing to do honest detective work, another to pull names out of thin air, as with the speculation that it is Jerry's son. Besides, do you really think that would happen? I had a friend who got involved with a good friend/co-worker's son, the outcome when she found out was not pretty, to say the least.

Reminds me of all that those rumors of Jake with Anna Wintour's son, who was all of 12 when they supposedly hooked up.
