Bravo! Oscar Nominee (“Juno”) Ellen Page Comes Out as Gay in Speech


Past Oscar nominee Ellen Page made headlines Friday night. She revealed in a speech in front of an LGBT group that she’s gay. It’s probably not a shock to a lot of people. But for Page it was a brave moment. I can’t think of another young actor who’s been so honest and courageous. Good for her! Ever since Ellen took off in the movie “Juno” she’s been a refreshing presence in the movie world. She’s a great actress, and a pretty good human being. She says “I was tired of hiding.”

Listen to her speech here:
