Detailed Biography of Ellen DeGeneres
Now that “The Oprah Winfrey Show” has ended its historic run on daytime television, there is little question about who will be inheriting the title of America’s Daytime Sweetheart. In fact, that person will undoubtedly be Ellen DeGeneres, who has hosted the daytime talk show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” since 2003 to great acclaim and viewer ratings.
Born outside New Orleans, Louisiana, Ellen DeGeneres appearances in stand up comedy began early on in her career, and by 1994, she had begun starring in her own television show, which was, of course, called “Ellen.” In 1997, an Ellen DeGeneres appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” included her coming out publicly as a lesbian, which then followed as a storyline on her ABC sitcom. From then on, Ellen DeGeneres appearances played a huge role in furthering gay rights.
Throughout her career, there have also been Ellen DeGeneres appearances on the big screen. Among her film resume, you will see roles in the films “Mr. Wrong,” “The Love Letter” and “EdTV,” but the film role she is most famous for only includes an Ellen DeGeneres appearance in the form of her voice. That is her role as Dory in the hit Pixar film “Finding Nemo.”
The companies that have received lucrative Ellen DeGeneres endorsements over the years have included American Express, Cover Girl cosmetics, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project and the Human Rights Campaign’s Coming Out Project.
