Portia de Rossi has penned 'Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain,' an unflinching and bravely honest account of her battle with eating disorders and dealing with her sexuality. It is an extraordinary account, incredibly vivid and shocking and quite simply one of the most powerful books about anorexia ever written. De Rossi took time to discuss her struggles, along with the healing power of falling in love with now-wife Ellen DeGeneres.

"I stopped looking in the mirror and obsessing how I looked," she tells PopEater. "I realized who I was and what I thought was a lot more important to her and therefore it became more important to me."
