The Anti-Hero

| Filed under: CanadialandEllen Page

may-2008-cover.jpg

Ellen Page is not your typical choice for a Teen Vogue cover, which is why we think it's fan-freakin'-tastic that the Juno star graces the cover of the mag's new issue.

Just by being herself, the Canadian actress is an inspiration to young girls (and boys) out there everywhere.

Ellen’s practical approach to fashion (she doesn't love dresses) makes her a bit of a maverick in glammed-up, fashionista-obsessed Hollywood. While she is willing to play the game — “I get that it’s part of my job,” she says — she does so in a way that keeps the attention squarely on her acting, not on what designer dress she is wearing on the red carpet. When asked about her attire, she says, “I’m a bum, really. This”— meaning, work— “is the only time I get dressed up.”

Dressing up is fun. Not dressing up is fun too. Life is all about having fun and doing whatever it is that's "fun" for you, bbs!

    I could not agree with you more, this girl is on fire but not for the reason that makes other celebs so popular. She is relatable and common but by being common, she possesses the ability to also just be herself. evan andersen thinks she will do very well with her career.

    I can't wait to see Juno. She seems sweet, and normal and I love that about her. She is definately one of my fav actresses. She also is HAWT!

    Hollywood should take a hint from Ellen Page: Talent is a far better asset than the clothes you wear and the scandels you create.

    Am I the only person who thought Juno was really annoying? The writing, and Ellen, just tried too hard.

  35. Jay says – reply to this

    She's a man. She's not in the slightest bit feminine. Looks like a 12 year old boy.

  36. Pffft. says – reply to this


    36

    From all accounts she's just a nice kid. I don't get a lesbian vibe at all. Anyhow, that would be her business. Why is she being tarred with sexual innuendo already? This is just a kid from Canada trying to act in films. Pffft.

  37. Candice says – reply to this

    i love her!
    she's a breath of fresh air after the tirade of crappy young actresses out there

    She's prettier than Jennifer Garner (but looks like her), and people weren't claiming Garner was lezzie, although she can look quite angular.

    What happened 2 all of u guys??!!ELLEN IS AWESOME(Hard Candy&Juno)!!!
    U can't said so,I mean the kind of lesbian talk,just because she dosen't really care about what is she wearing when she is walking or shopping or doing sth else.She 's not like the normal Hol(l)ywood stars,but that only represents that she's a normal girl not a TEEN STAR!At least I don't want 2 see another Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan or Olsen twins or Vaness Hudgens appeared again.

    Kudos Perez for aknowledging Ellen Page as the sincere and genuine young lady that she is. We are so proud of her back home in Halifax (you should seriously come here — you would love the downtown scene and the people). It is wonderful for young girls to have a positive role model. As the mother of an 11 year old girl, I am absolutely thrilled that my daughter looks up to Ellen — she loves her fashion sense; her humour; her amazing talent; and the fact that she is so proud of her Canadian roots!!
    Thanks, you have a huge fan base on the East Coast

    So happy that she is on the cover! She is so beautiful! Finally a young woman who more people can relate to. She really is a great role model and I wish her the best of luck with her career! SHES ON FIRE

    Great actress my ass.
    She was horrible on SNL. She's monotone and still looks like a 12 yer old boy.
    In a few months she'll never be heard from again.

    One of the few celebrities I don't absolutely despise. Love her!

  63. Ohdoyouhearthat?Violins says – reply to this


    63

    I'm not really a fan of Ellen Page.She reminds me of when Avril was considered "cool" and "edgy" and "not giving a fuck."Until people realized she was a fake.I'm sorry she just seems like a try hard edgy pseudo-intellect.I don't know.Something about her irks me.

  64. sophie says – reply to this


    64

    No offense meant but with the usual clothes she's wearing she looks like an actress in the 80's or early 90's..

  65. bubblenush says – reply to this


    65

    as a parent of a young teenage girl I find it refreshing that someone in the "industry" can be successful with their clothes on and promote an image that is fresh and honest. She is an inspiration to all generations

  67. Ellen says – reply to this


    67

    She's been in teen vogue a bunch of times before, back when she was in hard candy (which was wayyyy better than juno, by the way). She inspired a haircut I got 3 years ago. She's really not that new.

  68. Matty says – reply to this


    68

    Ellen's so naturally pretty in real life and in this pic! She doesn't need half the make-up alot of celebs need just to look good…she's super talented, has got her own personality and style, and is a fellow Maritimer! GO ELLEN EH! :)

    Re: Ohdoyouhearthat?Violins – Avril is no fake neither is Ellen, how would you like to be judged from 17 to 23 years old both are accomplishing alot in there professions.

    oh man, i'd make her cum so hard her legs would break.

  72. Think says – reply to this


    72

    A lot of people of both sexes don't like dressing up, and it's usually the down to earth ones. I don't find that it reflects on their preferred sexuality. I know a lot of straight guys who try to avoid wearing suits at all costs, lol. A lot would wear comfy jeans to their wedding if they could.

  73. DALE says – reply to this


    73

    Although the comments of "refeshing" "real" and honest were all the exact same things people said about Avril before the predictable backlash (must be the brown hair) I'm already senseing a backlash towards Ellen, kids are held up to impossible standards, where people look for the "perfect" role model, no human being is "perfect" if they give that perception they are then chances are they are carefully molded from management.

  74. Jessica says – reply to this


    74

    C'mon everyone, don't hate on Ellen.

    She is at least herself, be it bi, lesbian, straight…who gives a shit? She is at least a real person who doesn't doll it up like a lot of the fake whores that grace the cover of most magazines.

    And Juno isn't glorifying teen pregnancy you ass holes. Seriously. See a fucking movie before you form an opinion on it.

    76

    Re: fg – maybe you should calm the fuck down. go see the movie. it isn't promoting teen pregnancy. there is no point in the movie where they make her seem happy about it. more often than not she is freaking out about it. if anything it shows that at times "a garbage dump of a situation" can turn out okay. she gives the baby to someone who wanted/needed it. the movie has an awesome ending that (if you have a soul) you can appreciate. i am not trying to start something or be a bitch, just saying.

  77. Rachel says – reply to this


    77

    She's a lesbian, no doubt about it. She's still in the closet. I mean, not that it's a big deal or anything but I'm truly suprised Perez didn't sniff this one out sooner.

    You heard it hear first. She's a lesbo. She might not come out tomorrow, next month or in a year… but she's a lesbo. Take my word for it. Just observe the mannerisms.

    you morons have SUCH ass backwards outlooks on everything.
    you criticize someone for being them self and hate on them for dressing a little differently, but when the latest flavour of the month comes along doing the same, you praise them.
    whats wrong with you idiots and your double standards?

  80. Raya says – reply to this


    80

    To all you people who think she's such a natural beauty and talent… yeah, okay. She's a typical limosine liberal. Her "used" clothing probably cost a couple of G's and her makupless look is actually tons of makeup making her look makeup less.

    Heard it all before. This lesbian (and not because she "keeps it simple" but simply because she is a lesbian) is certainly typical of all up and comers in Hollywood… pretending to keep it low key and probaby won't drink anything cheaper than cristal when no one's looking.

    And why all the hating toward ALL of the Hollywood masses… they're doing their jobs, we're doing ours. Most of them are hot and messed up because of US.

  81. Rabid Bird says – reply to this


    81

    SHE IS ABSOLUTLY A FREE STYLE GIRL, I FIND HER A VERY NATURAL…

    I DO THINK SHE IS A LESBIAN (COME ON! WE KNOW OUR TYPE) BUT SHE WON'T COME OUT OF THE CLOSET FOR VARIOUS REASONS.

    I DON'T THINK SHE IS NOT A PROUD LESBIAN, SHE MIGHT WANT TO KEEP THAT IN PRIVATE AND IT'S EVEN BETTER FOR HER BECAUSE SO AS K. MOENNIG, THIS RUMOR IS WORKING GOOD FOR HER.

    MISTERY IS GOOD FOR HOLLYWOOD.

    NO HOLLA, i only remember sitting on the school bus behind the POOR-HOE-REEKAN SPICS..who stood up and got off the bus in their crime infested, ghetto barrios…and dropped from their pockets the stale government cheese blocks, the food stamps to buy their lunches, the knives and guns to kill the teachers and other students and the crack rocks they stole from their obese, ugly welfare whoring mommies… the spics left their putrid greas stains all over the bus and when my lily white hand touch it, it burned through my flesh….those were the days weren't they…the idle days of sitting behind the foul, stupid spics where I had to hold my breath for miles not to breath in their chimp island monkey scent……ahhhhh, if only Febreeze was available then in my school days on the bus with the spic chimps…

    Re: Raya – How to generalize. You know nothing about her. She's not liberal just because she's Canadian, dumbass. We currently have a conservative government, and there are more conservative voters here than liberal. She's still just a kid, and if she prefers not to dress up, like most Canucks, would just as easily make a JOKE out of drinking cristal and mock her limo ride in her jeans. Our heads are not up our asses, and to assume makes an ass out of u and me. The felt shirt probably originated here, as thirty five below zero and 6 feet of snow knocks the attitude out of you pretty quickly, and then you have a good time. Seriously.

    So just because ur a tomboy and you think dresses and makeup and other girl shit is pointless…that makes u a lesbian.
    Well heres a big FUCK YOU to the people that think that.
    Being a cool tomboy is better than being a pretty whore.
    I'm a HUGE tomboy and trust me I'm not a freakin lesbo.
    geez…anyways…LOVE U ELLEN PAGE…JUNO WAS AWESOME!

    It's nice to see so much positive response towards Canadian talent lately. We Canadians are a bit more "granola". We love to live organic lifestyles, fashion included. As a whole, we appreciate natural beauty and we also have the higest immigration rate in the world. We thrive on the beauty of culture and artistic diversity.

    I admire Canadian talent like Ellen P, Feist, Sarah Polley, Atom Egoyan, David Chronenberg, Tegan and Sara, Peaches, Sarah Mclachlan, Diana Krall, Joni Mitchell, Stars, The Arcade Fire, Tiga, KidsOnTV, Dandi Wind…and of course, Alanis, Celine and Avril…

    …they pretty much sum up the laid back vibe that is Canada.

    Oh, and we have great weed!
