Unbearable Lightness of Being by Portia De Rossi 

Born in Geelong as plain old Amanda Rogers and somehow never quite fitting in at home as a law student/part-time model (who would rollerblade to lectures in full make-up, straight from a shoot), Portia always wanted to stand out a little but found herself confronted early in life by her secret homosexuality and an equally hidden eating disorder. They were her constant companions on her journey to fame and fortune as an actress on the US hit series Ally McBeal and Arrested Development. After being outed in a high-profile lesbian relationship, Portia has since embraced her homosexuality and created showbiz history marrying popular talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, as well as beating her eating disorder.

This is her story of triumph (with a bit of starving, bingeing, vomiting and lying along the way, but also a lot of laughs).
