Ellen Page

'I Am Gay'

2/14/2014 8:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Ellen Page -- who hit Hollywood hard with "Juno" -- just came out in pretty spectacular fashion -- declaring she's gay and saying, "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission."

The 26-year-old actress formally unveiled her sexuality at the HRC's Time to Thrive event, an LGBT conference designed to help the LGBT youth, saying, "I am here today because I am gay ... and because maybe I can make a difference."

Page said, "I suffered for years because I was scared to come out.  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 the pain."

Her next big film is "X-Men:  Days of Future Past."  Hollywood will embrace Ellen ... it will be interesting to see if studio big wigs will do the same.

I have no problem with gays, but I have a big problem with hypocrites. Anyone that goes around making a big deal about their sexuality, while simultaneously saying that they don't want to be treated differently, is a hypocrite.

Eve n if you expect a response, its still an important one. Being gay in today's society is hard. I deeply agree with what she saying and support all gays and lesbians. I personally am straight, but believe in equal rights and no book should be able to dictate what we feel is right or wrong. They are just words printed on a stupid piece of paper and have no meaning. It is Just like a dumb romance, scify, or mystery novel. They are all just ink. Nothing important. All lies, and fantasy.

Love this actress! I didn't assume but had suspicion of this already. Couldn't care less if she's guy or not. But glad she's happy.
