Why do so many of us love Ellen DeGeneres?  I think it's because she makes me smile. 

Ellen is funny, easy going and down to earth.  She's able to have as much fun with a 5-year-old as she is an 85-year-old.  She treats Hollywood's hottest celebrities just like the rest of us.  She'll ask questions, nobody wants to answer, and either get a response or a giggle from her guests.  She's charitable too.  Ellen uses her status to help people.  She recently gave away a new car to a young couple who really needed a little help.  That was just one, of two surprises that day!
