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.

Who's Ellen Page and why should I care that she's gay? No need to hold a F'ing press conference.

Those in middle America that would be concerned with you chosen lifestyle don't know who you are. Those in Hollywood would be hypocrites if they cared. You need to come to terms with your own life. If you think coming out solves life's problems you are very wrong.

It's so funny how females who look like little boys and old ugly men, think no one knows their gay and lesbians.

Not a surprise at all. Honestly, I thought she came out years ago.
If only all lesbians looked like her. Unfortunately, most seem to look like guys or weigh 300lbs.

I guess if it has to be announced and, subsequently, gushed over we haven't really progressed all that much, have we?
