“’Miss Congeniality’ was written based on me,” DeGeneres said. “When I was getting ready to co-host the Emmys, the writer saw me [on TV] learning how to walk in a dress and heels. My stylist at the time — a man — was teaching me, and it was hilarious. The ‘Miss Congeniality’ writer saw it and thought it was brilliant.”
