  • Portia de Rossi Tells Wife Ellen DeGeneres Why She Quit Acting

"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.

De Rossi says her foray into the art world started with her company General Public which she hopes will bring more people to art.

She said that her decision to quit acting came as she began looking for something new to do that would be challenging and different.

For now, the last place her fans can see her on the small screen is on the fifth season of Arrested Development, but that marks the end of her acting career. "She decided you didn't want to do anything more with acting and got off of Scandal". "Don't know how it happened". We had a really great conversation and then he wrote me into five episodes.

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".
