Ellen Page just came out of the closet!
At Friday's THRIVE Conference for LGBT youth in Las Vegas, the X-Men: Days Of Future Past star declared proudly to a packed crowd that she was tired of living a lie! She said:
"I’m here today because I am gay…
I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be 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 all that pain."
Yes! You go, gurl! We're behind you 100%!
