Ellen: I think people really know who I am. Most comedians, you just see them being funny. I love Jerry Seinfeld. But I don't know who he is. I love Jim Carrey. But I don't know who he is. I love Chris Rock. You know what I'm saying? And maybe that's why they're hugely successful, and their careers have not been rocked, and it's all been steady. Most people are scared to reveal who they are. Because every time you reveal something you eliminate a certain part of your audience. I haven't tried to hide. People have seen me cry. I don't care. I don't care that they see that I'm a person. You know, there have been times in my life...I was so low. I thought, I don't know how I can go on. I wouldn't have taken a step to do anything, but it would have been fine with me if I would have disappeared.
