Ellen DeGeneres happy people now “get” her: ‘It’s one thing to be loved. It’s profound to be understood’

Good Morning America host Robin Roberts, who came out publicly last December, got Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres to open up in an interview that aired yesterday on GMA.

Roberts noted that DeGeneres had career troubles after coming out in 1997 but that it all seems behind her now and that ‘it’s got to be gratifying to know that people get you – they get you now.’

DeGeneres quoted something wife Portia de Rossi said in their wedding vows: ‘It’s one thing to be loved. It’s profound to be understood.’

Now in the 11th season of her wildly popular daytime talk show – ratings are higher than ever before – DeGeneres shared why she does what she does.

‘I can’t expect everyone to love me and like everything I do. I just want people understand me and to get me and know what my intentions are,’ she said.

‘And my intentions are to make people happy, and my intentions are to never hurt anybody, and my intentions are to have compassion and to hope I can spread that a little bit every single day.’

Nice to see Ellen looking so happy because she makes so many of us happy each day.
