The Arrested Development star said she decided she wanted to work on something "challenging and different".

The former actress and model appeared alongside her wife Ellen DeGeneres on American television to make the shock announcement.

That's because Rossi says that she's done with acting.

"I just think it's unbelievable, too, because all you've ever known your entire life is acting, that's all you've known, and you took a chance, and you decided 'I'm gonna try a whole new thing that I've never done'".

"Don't know how it happened but I am on Season 5".

Portia de Rossi, pictured with Kerry Washington, asked to be written out of Scandal.

She explained that she studied art and has been "an art lover" her "whole life" and has made a decision to start "an art curation and publishing company".

A third video shows a United States citizen, John Holt , who was arrested in Caracas in 2016 and has yet to be tried. In a video seen on Twitter late on Wednesday Holt said, "I'm here to show you that I am not being kidnapped".

She says that this decision to throw away the scripts came after she turned 45 which Ellen joked about saying that she was "aging out" of roles.

But then, Hurwitz wrote her into five more episodes, and here we are.

De Rossi, who has been married to DeGeneres since 2008, said the secret to their union is that they are best friends.

We just wish it didn't have to end.

And Portia wants her fans to know that this isn't a vanity project, because she is very hands-on, devoting the same kind of time and energy expended on her acting career.

De Rossi said she launched her art publishing company to bring high-quality prints to everyone.

First, de Rossi spoke about her and DeGeneres's upcoming trip to Africa as well as why she chose to quit acting.
