We are in awe, Ellen Page!
The actress revealed info at the Television Critics' Association's 2016 winter press tour about the time, while filming an episode of her Viceland series Gaycation, she confronted a VERY scary anti-gay cop!

Page and her best friend Ian Daniel were filming in Brazil when they ran across a cop who started to brag about how he had killed gay people before, and the actress took it all in stride:
"Of course there's a nervousness. There'a a nervousness driving there. It was probably one of the more scary, nerve-wracking moments I've had …. I feel like when we're in that mode, we probably feel, maybe in a naive way that it's all going to be okay."
Daniel added more about the scary incident:
"A person who is standing in front of you is saying I've killed people like you, I'm going to do it again, and there are other people like me who are killing people like you … It's scary in that it's just hard to hear."

Gaycation will come out in February, and if things like this are any indication… it'll be a must-watch.
