Her breakthrough performance for the 2007 romantic comedy flick, "Juno" set her career into motion. Ellen Page has definitely won the hearts of many through her roles in "Juno" and "Inception," just some movies to name a few. However, the 26-year old Canadian born star revealed in a moving speech for LGBT teens in Las Vegas that she was homosexual-and that she was "tired of hiding it."
Ellen Page disclosed her true sexuality by speaking to thousands of teens last Friday, during the Time to Thrive conference held in Las Vegas. The conference is said to be sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign. Her moving speech received much support and applause from the audience though the "Inception" star looked visibly shaken while delivering the moving piece.
According to the star, she had decided to come out because she could not conceal her true sexuality to the public anymore. She added, "My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered...And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."
Meanwhile, many fans were quick to react about the coming-out-of-the-closet of the petite 26-year old. Page's rumored flame, Alexander Skarsgard, is yet to respond to the announcement of the Canadian star. It is said that the two dated while filming for the movie "The East." According to reports, two had been dating for almost a year, with some going to the extent that they were already expecting their first child. In many photographs that surfaced on the Internet, the two were seen looking extra sweet. Could it be that Ellen Page used the hunky Swedish actor as a beard? The 39-year old is yet to comment about the coming out of rumored Ellen Page.
Meanwhile, many celebrities expressed their support for the "Juno" star. Anna Kendrick, Page's co-star in the critically acclaimed film "Juno" posted on Twitter "'Mad mad mad mad mad mad crazy love and praise for @EllenPage today."
