Former Ally McBeal star Portia de Rossi turned 40 back in January and she has been talking about her life as she hits middle age. Portia still looks fantastic for her age and she has admitted that she is loving life at 40 and does not want to be chasing what she was like at 20.
During a chat with People Magazine, de Rossi explained, "The trick for me turning 40 was to really evaluate what I wanna do with the next phase in my life. The one thing I don't wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20. People do think I look younger than I am because I dress like a teenager."
She added, “As women we're so conditioned to think that beauty and age area very important that you stay kind of youthful in order to be beautiful. I don't think it's fair for people to think that women are just vain because they're worried about getting older. It's actually really linked in with a lot of very primitive stuff for women."
Portia de Rossi has been with chat show host Ellen DeGeneres since 2004. Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres then got engaged, before they were then married on August 16 2008.
