Portia de Rossi chose to stop by The Ellen Show, naturally, to reveal kind of a big fact about her professional life.

"You aren't a big fan of doing press and talk shows, so thank you for being here", DeGeneres said.

De Rossi was raised in Grovedale, near Geelong, before studying law at the University of Melbourne.

Unfortunately her appearances on The Ellen Show have been few and far between, as the 45-year-old has taken a step back from the spotlight, even confirming she has quit acting.

However, she is best known for playing Lindsay Bluth Funke on the award-winning TV comedy Arrested Development.

Portia then went on to explain that she made the decision about a year and a half ago, when Shonda Rhimes chose to cut her character from political thriller series Scandal. Shonda Rhimes wrote me off Scandal. "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.

"Don't know how it happened but I am on Season 5".

De Rossi also went on to explain more about the art-based venture that's pulled her away from Hollywood.

She explained that she studied art and has been "an art lover" her "whole life" and has chose to start "an art curation and publishing company".
