Ellen Degeneres Favorite Things

Everybody loves Ellen DeGeneres, but what can’t the talk show star live without?

TThe comedian reveals her favorite things in Elle Decor‘s latest issue, on newsstands Tuesday. The list is an expectedly eclectic mix of meals, knickknacks and Netflix recommendations.

First up, DeGeneres can’t resist a good antique shop in Los Angeles, calling Galerie Half, Obsolete, Blackman Cruz, Lucca Antiques and Hallworth as her go-to stores. And she keeps her home and office smelling sweet with Annick Goutal candles in the Petite Cherie scent.

As for food, she’s a sucker for spicy pasta arrabbiata. “My favorite food,” she tells the magazine. “I order it at Mateo in L.A.”

The Oscars host cruises around in a 1997 Porsche Carrerra 911 (“My favorite car in both design and drive,” she explains), but it’s quite nights at home with wife Portia de Rossi that she truly treasures.

Their activity of choice? Streaming Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.

“Portia and I are binge-watching,” she says. “It’s keeping us up all night long.”
