Ellen Page Talks To Stephen Colbert About Coming Out

Ellen Page Talks To Stephen Colbert About Coming Out


Ellen Page dropped by "The Colbert Report," and talked about her experience coming out at The Human Rights Campaign's "Time to Thrive" conference.

Ellen told Colbert that coming out was one of the most nerve-wracking moments of her life but at the same time she was thrilled to be at a place where she was ready to do it. She also said she was grateful for the support that she's received.

But Colbert thought Ellen should have waited to make the announcement that she was gay on his show to boost his ratings. He said it would be have been incredible. So... they tried for a do-over.

COLBERT: "So Ellen, uh, thanks for coming on the show, are you seeing anybody right now?"
ELLEN: "No, actually I've been dating a really nice guy named Brad..."
COLBERT: "Really?"
ELLEN: "No... I'm gay."
COLBERT SPITS HIS WATER OUT
COLBERT: "What?!"

Apparently after Ellen came out, there was so much response that it broke the Human Rights Campaign's website.

Ellen is now starring in the new film, "X-men: Days of Future Past," which hits theaters May 23.

Republicans do not hate everyone. We just believe in a conserverative point of view. Everyone has a deferent opinion, but saying, "republicans hate everyone" is a false statement. I believe that this is a very easy to become a hostile towards a certain belief that you do not understand but that doesn't give the right to say that its wrong, just like gay bashing this is a very common thing that happens to conserveratives for no respectable reason.

So...gay bashing now means conservatives being called out on bigotry? Because it used to mean something very different.

gay bashing meant physically HUNTING HARMING AND BEATING of people who were gay, not disagreeing with them... huge difference. nice try. homosexuality is nothing like race, which in fact people have a right to express a political or social view on as well... if you bastardize someone for disagreeing with you the way the LGBT movement is, then you are the same scum, bigot, 'phobe, Etc...

It isn't about her other coming out, it's about the news that she recreated it on Colbert. Learn some comprehension before you make such idiotic comments in the future.

Because bullies like you still exist. We must stand strong to show you that we will NOT be intimidated. We will protect ourselves and we will protect those who are too frightened to come out.

Too many young people have killed themselves because of the bullying and hostility directed at them for the simple fact that they are gay. If a public figure coming forward and saying that they are gay saves even one life, then it is worth the inconvenience to those people who seem to be very put upon to have ti hear it. Nobody ever died of inconvenience.

Well its a choice, we are all born as blank slates, its all choice, no one is born gay, no one is born an engineer, no one is born transgender(DUH) and no one is born the president... except for Bush Jr... but in seriousness- The truth hurts, but the manufactured idea of homosexuality being natural is so soothing to those that need justification, much like a manufactured drug. even tho mechanically and mathematically homosexuality is erroneous and completly UN-natural(I dont even NEED religion to attempt to point this out) ...Educate kids about it, stop telling young boys that the reason they are too nervous to ask out a girl is because they are gay... Too many teens I knew in HS went down the homosexuality route because a girl turned them down and they assumed that meant they were gay... Seriously... WTF people? Bullying sucks... but it doesn't justify the proponent view, people are bullied for not supporting homosexuality, look at Brendan Eich for example... Faggotry = Bigotry today!

And then, as a nation, we'll all rise and slowly clap at just how funny and original this joke is.

then how come its ok to hire and fire someone based on their political views of homosexuality? Apparently its okay to employ hate and bigotry if someone so much as disagrees with gay rights on a political or social level. Equality in deed. we should be able to fire homosexuals and bastardize them on the news just as they do to their opponents. since they have laws that force people to participate in homosexual weddings we should force all gay couples to participate in the westborough baptist church too! then we have equal rights!

Those whose last visions were of a flaming night sky in Benghazi must be wondering what they had sacrificed their lives for, the media not caring about how they were left to suck it up, one said to have been sodomized with a bayonet before buying it.

Instead the news today from the networks is that some Hollywood star came out, putting justice for the Benghazi Four on a back burner motioning, “Move along, nothing to see here.” This pretty princess dances around as if there’s no other news. Of course if you look at the mainstream media’s mission statement there really wasn’t any other news, reminding us "It ain't news until we say it is."

But Jiddu Krishnamurti may have gotten it right, one who gave up fame and fortune warning, "It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

nothing matters but gay sex in modern news, have you noticed you CANNOT go anywhere without seeing 33 stories about gay this lesbian that and transexual blah blah blah... 1 word... disgusting. Putin may not be as batshit crazy as we thought. He has likely been watching from a distance and said HELL NO NOT IN MY COUNTRY. Ahh the days when children weren't targeted for social engineering by sexually-deviant interests groups... the days indeed.
