The world was delighted when X-Men starlet Ellen Page came out on Valentine's Day, but she wasn't the franchise's first openly gay cast member! Not even close!

Ian McKellen, a.k.a. present day Magneto, has been openly gay since 1988!

In the X-Men films, Ian's character fights on behalf of an unjustly disenfranchised group of "mutants." Well, that's no coincidence!

As it turns out, when director Bryan Singer approached the legendary actor and begged him to accept the role, he suggested that Ian view the mutants' plight as a metaphor for what the LGBT community endures in real life!

Ian confessed:

We still haven't stopped applauding Ellen Page for coming out, and now that we have even more reason to praise her, we'll just keep clapping if Juno what we're sayin'!

Michael Cole-Schwartz, the director of communications for the Human Rights Campaign, which organized the Time to THRIVE conference where Ellen publicly announced that she was gay, claimed that idea was all hers:

Living life FREELY! And OPENLY! Just being her amazing self!

Something tells us Ellen Page's dance card is going to be full for quite some time!

Ever since she came out, the Juno star has been inundated with support - and unfortunately hate - from all around the world!

But in the eye of the storm is a girl who's gotta get to work!

Ellen has been busy filming some reshoots on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and on Tuesday she was spotted arriving back at LAX - probably to get started on her next project!

ellen page julianne moore gay lesbian couple new movie freeheld

Ellen Page is celebrating coming out by having her first public lesbian relationship- with Julianne Moore!

OK, it's just for a movie, but still! Nice!

Ellen and Julianne have signed on to play lovers in Freeheld, an upcoming indie drama about a policewoman kept from leaving her pension to her domestic partner.

If that sounds familiar, that may be because it's based on the moving documentary short of the same name that won the Oscar in 2007.

Sounds like a real tearjerker, but also an important story of gay rights!

And Ellen is the perfect person for the part!
