American actress and television host, Ellen DeGeneres, says she is disappearing from the public eye after playing her final shows for a Netflix special.

The 66-year-old comic star declared that she was “done” with fame.

“This is the last time you’re going to see me. After my Netflix special, I’m done,” she said during a recent stop on her “Ellen’s Last Stand…Up” tour at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa.

Responding to a fan who asked her to once again voice the character Dory from Pixar’s ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Finding Dory,’ DeGeneres said: “No, I’m going bye-bye, remember.”
DeGeneres also addressed the misconduct allegations against her show; “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” which ended amid a series of reports detailing allegations of racism, sexual misconduct and intimidation behind the scenes.

“[I] can be demanding and impatient and tough. I am a strong woman. I am many things, but I am not mean,” she said.

“I used to say, ‘I don’t care what people say about me.’ Now I realize I said that during the height of my popularity.”
