#29 Portia De Rossi

Many gay actors have played straight characters in both feature films and movies. The reverse is also true. She had been a child model both in the TV commercials and print media before the age of 15. Portia de Rossi is her adopted name. She did this to reinvent herself when she was well into her teens. She is a proclaimed lesbian and is married to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in 2008. But in the TV serial, “Arrested Development” she has played the promiscuous but married, Lindsay Bluth Funke, with such aplomb and ease. Since acting is all about role playing she was able to carry of her character as the wanton Lindsay easily.
