If Elle Decor 's tour of Portia de Rossi's Santa Monica home (which she shares with her famous half, Ellen DeGeneres) made you swoon, get a load of the actress on the cover of Out magazine. For the black and white feature, de Rossi stepped into a pair of graphic, runway looks courtesy of Louis Vuitton and Prada, and opens up about the film industry's grayer areas — especially, in terms of gay roles.

The veteran actress revealed that she had shopped around a TV show titled Butch and Fay. The premise? Two homosexual actors who marry each other to appear straight for the sake of their careers. And, though she said that everyone who read the script was "titillated" by the idea, the project ultimately shuttered. She went on to explain that TV execs thought that being gay in Hollywood was no longer an issue. Of course, she disagrees, saying "I know it’s not very popular to bring this issue up, but it’s still very difficult for actors to get certain types of roles. We need to hear it some more until things change." Amen.

When pressed about her famously celebrated marriage, de Rossi admits that there's no drama to report — all the shenanigans are reserved for the return of Arrested Development! For a quick refresher: At the end of the previous season, the actress' character was dealing with some shocking reality — namely, she's actually three years older than she had thought (as in, The Big 4-0).

On the reincarnation, de Rossi gave Out a small preview of what's to come: "She is attempting to...not become a better person exactly, but to find out who she is and what she wants. She isn’t as vapid and selfish as I’ve always thought her to be." As if we needed another excuse to renew our Netflix membership!
