Lesbian actress Portia De Rossi
constantly worries about whether her sexuality will affect her job security, despite leading the cast in TV comedy Better Off Ted
The Aussie star, 36, has become known for her parts on hit TV shows like Ally McBeal
and Arrested Development
, and landed her latest role, as Veronica Palmer, earlier this year.
However, De Rossi admits she still harbors fears her public romance with her wife, comedian and TV presenter Ellen Degeneres
, will have a negative impact on her career.
She says, "I don't know if I'm going to be affected by it. Right now I'm employed, I'm on a show and I play a straight character and I have romantic interests with a man and it seems to be going OK."
The couple wed in August 2008, after same-sex marriages were made legal in California.
The decision was overturned just six months later by state legislation Proposition 8, which ruled future gay unions illegal.
