ellen page comes out

OMG!

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%!

See Ellen's entire inspirational speech …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    You know what I fucking hate? Telemarketers. They keep calling around 7am, waking up myself and my husband, to "participate in a survey". If the bugger continues I will find him and shove my foot up his ass! It should be illegal to be a telemarketer.

    Brava Ellen
    You are a young actress in Hollywood and can set a positive example for other LGBT people. More closeted celebrities should come out, in all fields, to provide, youth, uncertain about their sexuality, more role models. Keep up the good work and try to be a positive role model. I'm 60 and in my day, the Hollywood community forced celebrities in the closet. Glad to see this is not the case today.

    Re: DISGUSTING

    Obviously you missed the part of her speech where she said, "this world could be a much better place if people would just stop being HORRIBLE to each other."

    Which is really the only way it will happen, she came out like she did, not because it's a big deal to those of us who don't give a shit how others live their lives because it doesn't affect US, she came out because THE WORLD sees being gay/lesbian as a BAD thing. THE WORLD makes it a big deal, and so therefore has to be dealt with as if it is.

    I was always taught that if you didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Negativity begets negativity, and the world is negative enough already without your added, completely unnecessary, idiotic comments that do nothing but hurt others. Which btw, being gay is not a mutation, it is a normal development and there have been same sex unions since the dawn of time. Native American's revered Gay/Lesbian men and women, calling them "Two-Spirit" people. So suck on that.

    Re: Gross – We all know you don't believe that and are just trolling. If you actually thought that, you would be too stupid to even type such non-sense out. I'm curious what your motivation is, though, since hate speech isn't really known to make many friends.

    It seems ridiculous to me that in this day and age people even need to 'come out' - who actually cares…!?

    Re: Ewwww

    Let's be real here, who's life is really getting wasted right now, why did you even bother to come to this article, read it, then comment on it? Go waste your life on something that you actually like. And if the gay/lesbians spelled the destruction of the human race, i'd say they are doing a terrible job, considering they have been around since the dawn of mankind and we have the most people on this earth in the history of the world right now. So…. this is awkward for you.

    WOW! What an amazing, incredible speech. So touched by her..I'm not a member of the LGBT but I'm such a HUGE supporter. Kudos Ellen Page!!!!! love is the most incredible thing we can give or receive, she's so right…

    What a beautiful, courageous and well-articulated speech! Thank you for your bravery in coming out Ellen! You could see she was really nervous, but she needed to do this to give others hope. Mad props for your courage!

    114

    Re: mamacita – I agree, coming out is not that big a deal in Hollywood these days, sort of a badge of honor, but still, for all of us, coming out is an important step. If you haven't felt inclined to do it, or are not gay, then you will not understand and explaining won't help.

  15. Tara says – reply to this


    115

    I am proud of her. Great speech. :)

    It is not really that brave to come out these days. That word is really not used properly.

  17. MrBig says – reply to this


    117

    What's going on these days? What people do in their bedrooms is their business, so why even advertise it? That's the problem now, they all flaunt it in parades, in the schools, etc. And if you disagree, you're labeled "homophobe". They want us to be tolerant, but what about them???

    120

    I disagree with all the aholes that say this isn't brave…..
    You do realize that in this day and age there are hate crimes committed against gay people. Not everyone is so evolved and accepting. Also, coming out will affect her career negatively. Do you think Hollywood will be rushing to give her leading lady romantic roles?? Your all so clueless. Look at the Rupert Everert (sp?) how many great movies roles did he get after coming out???
    I LOVE Ellen, and I think she is very BRAVE! ANd Gorgeous! U go girl!

    Re: Disciple – What a revolting mass of hateful myth. But keep it up. Posts like yours tell us what religion is REALLY about. HATE!!!



  29. 129

    How old is she??? Mid 20s? In my opinion, working through sexual feelings in high school and college is normal. Most people finish at a 4-year college around 23. Somewhere around there. If you are still HIDING your real you and you're over 25, there are issues. You are past the high school bullies. You are past the college haters. At 25, why would you spend the energy sneaking around to spend time with the person you want to spend time with?

    134

    I guess she wasn't dating Alexander Skarsgard after all.



  35. 135

    i always just assumed she was a lesbian. shes awesome.



  36. 136

    Pretty much knew this when she's had NO chemistry with men all the way back to the Juno movie. She really hasn't fooled anyone into thinking differently. Why gay people keep trying to act out of character is beyond me. There are so many GAY story lines they would have plenty of acting jobs and more writers using the lesbian character everywhere. Is there any movie or TV show without them? No braveness here. Nothing demystifying here. The same goes for straight actors thinking they extend their range of "art" by taking gay parts. Why take away an opportunity for a gay actor to shine by doing this. Huge egos is why.



  37. 137

    What a load of sh!t. She came out ten years ago on SNL. She's just trying to resurrect her failed career.

    This is sad. No matter what religion you do or don't believe in, This is about tolorance and compassion. You can think that it wrong or disgusting or whatever but the fact that you choose to voice that opinion to me is shocking. What happened to the general love of people as a collective? No matter who they are or choose to be. I wish the best for her, her supporters, and haters. I hope people choose to become loving and caring and helpful. It takes a lot of courage to tell the world your gonna be who your gonna be, take a note from her and be stronger, less ignorant people.

  59. a says – reply to this


    159

    These threads and replies absolutely blow my mind. You people need to stop living with so much hatred. If you live with that much disgusting hatred in your heart, then I feel sorry for you, I really do. Because it says something about yourself. Ellen said to love others you need to love yourself, and it's true…Clearly you just don't, even if you don't realize it. Whether you're religious or not, it says a thousand times in the bible to live only with love and to do unto others what you would want done to yourself. You're wasting a lot of energy on hate, live and let live. AND Carpet/rug munchers, I mean come on, that's the best you can come up with?

    Congrats of going coming out. Now, go asian. Like the saying goes: "once you go asian, you [insert witty rhyme. I'm not witty]". (but date an asian bi or lesbian who isnt a Hitler pitier though). Asian girls are an extremely loving gentle being and would make a fine girlfriend for Ellen. So far, i'm not seeing any evidence that white gays interracially marry at any different rate from white heteros (cant even find any statistics on it yet. Gay marriage is too new).
    Gays should be leading the way in interracial mixing. Setting an example. Asian american women interracially marry at a rate of 20-40% (depending on the statistics you believe). Gay marriages should be just as progressive and openminded. Gays always compare gay marriage to interracial marriage. Now It would be cool if they interracially married more than heteros.

    It is sad to see so many people hating on Ellen Page because she finally was brave to admit something that was obvious but was scared of doing it. I can't blame for being hesitant because many people just aren't ready to accept that gay people are just like us.

    Re: DISGUSTING – Disgusting, it's OK now for you to come out of the closet too. Studies have shown that "heterosexual" people who most get upset about gay people are in fact hiding deep-seated, sometimes unconscious, homosexual feelings and tendencies themselves. Truly "straight" people do not get upset over homosexuality because they are secure in their own sexuality, consciously and unconsciously.



  76. 176

    Re: FUCK YOU – What a sad, lonely person you must be, to constantly post childish name-calling antics, like a 5 year old who says "dirty words" to get mommy's attention.

  81. 181

    was kinda obvious and everyone already new she batted for the girls team. But whatever, good for her for lifting the wieght off her shoulders.

    I just hope it don't influence her choice of acting rolls now. no way in hell do i want to see a rollerball sequel. I hope she don't get stereotyped into butch tomboy rolls, It happens a lot and those roles can get stale fast from a entertainment perspective.

    But whatever, good for her.

    Re: Shut up – Your fake god seems to have no order at all, considering all the shit going on just on the continent of Africa. Clits being lopped off, women being raped full of the AIDS, cannibalism of long vaginal lips, babies being raped to cure AIDS. I'm curious how you think there's any comparison between these things and people being gay. Or are you going after the most convenient, closest to home, easiest 'disorder' to right instead of ones that matter and would save lives. Besides, your god seems to care a lot more about piddly shit like people eating shellfish and clothes having mixed fabrics in them. Where's the fucking fatwa against Red Lobster and Macy's?
