Glee star Jane Lynch credits Ellen DeGeneres with helping her come out, she reveals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today.

Lynch, 50, who tied the knot with her girlfriend Lara Embry on Memorial Day, says she was closeted for most of her life, and she made the decision to come out because of "people like" DeGeneres.

"I used to lay in bed and go, 'How will I come out or will I come out?" she said. "You were at the height of your fame and you came out," Lynch told Ellen. "And that just blazed a trail for me. It really did. It made it so much easier for me what you did."

DeGeneres announced she was gay on the cover of Time magazine in 1997, and though it was a huge deal back then, she's certainly helped pave the way for many other stars in Hollywood.
