'Juno' actress Ellen Page comes out as gay

Actress Ellen Page:



Ellen Page, the well-known star of "Juno" and the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" gave an emotional and moving speech at Time to THRIVE, a conference supporting LGBTQ youth.

The actress announced to the Las Vegas audience Friday, "I'm here today because I'm gay. And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility."

Page said she felt she had been "lying by omission" by not coming out and revealing her true self. "I suffered for years because I was scared to be out," Page told the audience. She opened up about the pain she felt, starting with her entrance into the limelight after 2007's 'Juno' became a hit.

As soon as the news broke, many fans Tweeted in support of the 26-year-old star.



According to The Wrap, Ellen Page appeared in a 'SNL' skit in 2008 that made many speculate whether or not the actress was a lesbian. The sketch shows Page returning home from a Melissa Etheridge, overwhelmed by the experience.

Page was nominated for an Oscar for her role in 'Juno' and has appeared in many more films since.

You could tell she was a little dyke licker in Hard Candy. She was a nobody B-actress until she announced this, now she is a big hero. You want to be equal? Keep your private life private. No one gives a ****.

First fime I saw her was in "Hard Candy". She played a very young girl who hunted a child molester, humiliated, and killed him. I have liked her ever since. She is not a superficial person.

Yes, I also liked that movie. I think she played it so well because something like that happened to her to cause her to go into homosexual mode. It is horrible what the world can do to children.
Or what monsters like Larry Brinken support.

She probably played the part so well because most of what she was doing was not acting.

Many women and men start out normal and such things happen to them at the hands of pedophiles, both gay and straight, which transforms them into what they become.

Only if you're ready for it and then it can be like lifting 500lbs form your shoulders. Not sure about cool but it is a healthy thing to do. No more lie, no more secrets and you feel free and open about your life.

who gives a **** if she's gay or straight? I don't and I wonder why, who cares, she's not so important that I need to know. The only reason I'd need to know someone's sexual preference is if they're shouting the bible and living the lie. Not sure if I even need to know that.

"Aggression"? I Am Simply Responding to Hate and Rabid Homophobia with Facts and Evidence Supporting the Fact That Homophobes Are Total Hypocrites and Liars and that They Will No Long Be Allowed to Ruin the Lives of GAY AMERICANS and to spout lies and falsehoods that prevent Gays from Having Equal Rights and the Freedom to Have Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness !!!

Sounds like she is giving a pitch to become the younger gay rights leader, the new Rosie O'Donnell, wants to write and sell a book, wants to go on lecture shows, wants. to promote what it is to be gay. ??? Whatever??? or maybe this is a way to make headlines to sell herself for a new movie? It just seems that if she was gay, she would have her relationship and that would be that. To announce that she is gay sounds like she has some other agenda. Maybe she seeks to sell herself to Ellen? Who knows??? She has some competition with many Olympic stars who have also announced they are gay. This seems to be a time and new thing for "selling" what it is to be gay.
