• In a recent episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee on Netflix, Ellen DeGeneres shares candidly about coming out 20 years ago and the severe impact it had on her career.

You’ll recall when the comedienne came out in 1997, ABC cancelled her sitcom. It was a rough ride from there.

“When I lost the sitcom, I didn’t work for three years solid until I got the show, the talk show,” DeGeneres tells Seinfeld. “I was bitter and sad and angry. How did this change everything, just by me being honest and saying I’m gay? Why is this such a shock to people? Why is it such a big deal?”

You can catch the episode on Netflix now.
