Ellen DeGeneres

In real life she’s everything you hope she’ll be. Friendly, quick-witted, a little deadpan, a lot laid-back. And when talk turns to LGBT+ issues, as it must when America’s most famous out entertainer is in the room, Ellen DeGeneres is every bit as animated as the character she plays in Finding Dory.

Having joked at the film’s US premiere that the sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo took longer to come out than she did, the multi-hyphenate who acts, writes, does stand-up and hosts her own hit chat show has seen many sea changes in the 19 years since she announced her sexuality to the world.

“There’s a lot of positive things that’ve happened but we’re still moving forward,” the 58-year-old sighs when we meet her in a London hotel. “I’m always surprised that we still have resistance from people who don’t want it, who want to reverse it and who are fearful of it, because I don’t understand that at all. I’m a human being who just wants to love another human being. It’s still frustrating and mind-boggling to me that people won’t allow equality.”
