Funny lady Ellen DeGeneres got her start in television in the early '90s, and ever since, she's graced the world with her golden sense of humor. Not only can she put a smile on almost anyone's face (just ask Kanye West), but she's also received several awards for her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show; appeared in a handful of films including Finding Nemo and Finding Dory; and even served as a judge on American Idol.

In addition to her onscreen success, she's also made a difference with her personal life. Ellen famously came out as a lesbian on her sitcom in 1997 and graced the April cover of Time magazine with the words "Yep, I'm Gay," written across it, inspiring many in the LGBT community. Ellen then went on to meet her wife, Portia de Rossi, who she's been with for more than 10 years. To celebrate Ellen's time in the spotlight, we're looking back at her stunning Hollywood evolution.
