    Thanks for the interview. Can't believe she didn't like working on Ally McBeal! 8O Thought that would have been quite a fun/surreal job to act. Oh well! :lol:

    I didn't think of this as a lesbian issue as much as the issue of whether or not P was actively pursuing her career and how busy other actresses her age are.

    If she is relying on Ellen to provide her buzz in Hollywood, she may wind up regretting it when she and E are history. Training horses won't keep her in the lifestyle to which "she's become accustomed." But it sounds good when you have a very rich sugar momma.

    Maybe she isn't very ambitious, and that's cool. But if the debate really is that because she is "out" she won't be considered for any heterosexual roles, then it's a whole other ball of wax.

    It could still be many decades before actresses who happen to be lesbians will be treated like any other actress. Is it any wonder that Jodie Foster has kept a lid on her orientation?

    What we're all tip toeing around is P is no longer on the "go to" list of hot actresses now that she is out. And she may already anticipate it, so she's lucky to have the line that acting is a career that she might drop out of...to soothe the sting that she no longer has the appeal she once did when she was closeted.

    Ellen had to work hard to build back her appeal from her fall in the late 90s and she hasn't done it by pretending that she's just like every other actress. She has other highly marketable skills that don't rely on sex appeal at all.

    Unfortunately, while P and other lesbian actresses are talented, Hollywood may not make it too easy. If they can't sing, don't want to be a model and don't have desires to be directors or other jobs in the biz, then being a sex symbol might be taken off the list as well.

    BTW--Saffron Burrows is for sure bi-sexual and she's done okay for herself. But she may not expect to be the femme fatale anymore.

    All I'm saying is this is one of the most devisive issues lesbian actresses face today.

    I'm pretty sure when I clicked on this thread to read it, it was entitled 'alex' and yet for some reason i found myself reading about portia, which i don't really enjoy doing at the best of times but in a thread about alex...thats just not good.

    Fully agree with you rich on this one. This thread is supposed to be about Alex.

    And we were discussing how Alex's career in 2005 seemed to be doing a lot more than P's did. And why that might be.

    And just like many of the threads here, took off onto a related topic. And P is discussed at this board from time to time, so you'll need to toughen up if that bothers you a wee bit.

    Incase you didn't notice this is an ellen fan site, i'd expect to be reading about ellen even if the thread is entitled alex but i didn't see portia's name mentioned anywhere.

    And tigger2 i'm not bothered by it, i'm just airing my opinion and trying to get the posting back on subject, i'm sorry if i don't wanna read about portia when i'm expecting to be reading about alex.. it is somewhat of a disapointment.

    I get that there are discussions about portia on this board i'd just prefer not to be reading them. Maybe they should come with warnings 'caution: may contain traces of portia'
