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.

It was not a press conference idiots, it was an LGBT event. Also, I hate that people have to "come out" I could not care less who you lay with at night.

Good for you, Ellen. Every person who comes out makes it easier for others to stop living a lie. Living in a closet wreaks havoc on your mental health and relationships.

It would have been courageous to do this at the height of her career when everyone was talking. Now it's just a publicity stunt.
