Scott Pilgrim plays in a band which aspires to success.He dates Knives Chau, a high-school girl five years younger, and he hasn't recovered from being dumped by his former girlfriend, now a success with her own band.She was educated at Melbourne Girls Grammar School and the University of Melbourne, where she studied law.De Rossi has confirmed, in an interview with the Daily Mail, having struggled with anorexia nervosa throughout her teens and young adulthood, from which she credits the love of Ellen De Generes and her intensive treatment for having saved her.The show also utilizes several long-running "Easter egg" jokes throughout each season.Ron Howard serves as both an executive producer and the series' uncredited narrator. Just half a day earlier, the compact movie star (5-foot-1 in sneakers, and she's usually in them) who broke through playing a punk-rock-loving pregnant teen in 2007's character Kitty Pryde, whose powers allow her to pass through solid matter, Page had traversed the proverbial closet door as gracefully as if it never had been there at all.
Soon afterwards she moved to Los Angeles, and won guest roles on several TV shows, and a permanent role in Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher, before landing a part in the film Scream 2. From 2003–06, de Rossi starred as Lindsay Bluth Fünke on Fox Television's Arrested Development. Kennedy, Jr.'s wife, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, in the made-for-TV movie America's Prince: The John F. Story in 2003; then, in the same year, 2003, she acted out the role of an Australian reporter who inspires a protest against Frank Sinatra during a concert tour in The Night We Called It a Day.
It has been 17 years, after all, since Ellen De Generes declared, "Yep, I'm Gay," on the cover of -- a landmark moment for gay and lesbian visibility that, America tends to forget, was followed by the cancellation of her ABC sitcom and three years of industry radioactivity.
Yet while many more since have followed suit, it's unprecedented for a celebrity at Page's level -- under 30, Oscar-nominated and still wielding the clout to get projects of a certain budget greenlighted -- to come out of the closet at all, much less make the unequivocal statement, "I'm gay." Robin Roberts, to offer one recent high-profile example, chose to do it by thanking her girlfriend in a Facebook post, while Jodie Foster said, well, just about everything the G-word during a speech at the 2013 Golden Globes that drew complaints for being needlessly opaque. "You have no idea how hard that moment is, even though they're not fully saying what you want them to say," she says, addressing Foster's critics.
In 1988, at the age of 15, Rogers adopted the name Portia de Rossi, by which she remains best known.
In 2005, she explained that she had intended to reinvent herself, using the given name of Portia, a character from William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, and an Italian last name.
Despite critical acclaim, Arrested Development received low ratings and viewership on Fox, which canceled the series in 2006.
