In the new issue of Marie Claire UK, the Oscar winner talks describes her 2015 film Freeheld, about a New Jersey police lieutenant who struggles to secure her pension for her same-sex partner — played by Ellen Page — after she is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The film's subject matter allowed Julianne to talk frankly with her co-star about her own experiences, saying:

"Ellen was miserable. She talked to me very frankly about her own experience—what it felt like, about the nature of the discomfort. A lot of people I know came out a long time ago. None of my friends were celebrities when they came out; they were college students. So here I was talking to this very young woman, who had recently come out, about experiences that were very, very fresh, so it was a different kind of conversation."

The 55-year-old also addresses the ongoing fight for gay rights in America:

"I think it's easy for us in New York to say 'Oh, things are different' but they are not, people can still be discriminated against at work, or for housing. In some States they can be fired for being gay; they can be denied opportunities."

Last but not least, she takes on Hollywood's many, many problems:

"It's very difficult to find parts, no matter how old you are, no matter where you are and whether you're a man or a woman, the movie industry is not in the business of finding good roles for actors or actresses; it is in the business of creating films that will make as much money as possible."

Sad. But true.

We're just happy more big stars are discussing it.

Ellen Page Opens Up On Her 'Toxic' Past In The Closet & What It Felt Like To Finally Come Out

Ellen Page is a whole new woman.

Following Ellen's cathartic coming out in February 2014, the actress has become an LGBT rights activist and even scored a girlfriend. While the tiny Canadian is way happier than she was in the past, she admitted life prior to her public revelation was extremely difficult.

The Juno star explained:

"I was just done. It's so toxic to just be hiding; it becomes so consuming without you even knowing it's consuming you. You become so complacent in this reality you create. It's like a bucket, and it's filling up and filling up and filling up — and finally it just spills over. And I felt guilty for not being out for the LGBT community. I was like, ‘Dude, just say you're gay.'"

Ugh, that life sounds SO difficult. We're just glad Page was able to find the courage to be herself!

The dog enthusiast added:

"For me, it was a great opportunity to be honest, to share certain elements of the pain that I went through. The reality is, there are very few young people out as actors, so I was hoping to speak to a lot of the issues so it wouldn't just seem like, 'Hey, look, I'm gay.'"

Hopefully Ellen paved the way for other actors and actresses to come out. Hollywood could use a little more honesty!

Elaborating on earlier fears that her sexuality would hinder her career, the actress revealed:

"If someone was like, ‘Hey, you're never going to be in a movie ever again', I would have done it anyway."

Woot! What an amazing attitude — you can't put a price on freedom!

Congrats on doing you, girl!

no title

Probably a good thing Stephen Colbert didn't do this interview as his right-wing blowhard character!

Ellen Page stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday to talk about her new movie Freeheld, even sharing a clip of a sweet scene with Julianne Moore.

But the conversation quickly turned to LGBT rights, the religious debate, and being out of the closet.

It may be less funny than we usually see from Stephen, but it's a nice heart-to-heart!

See the whole convo and clip (below) and see Freeheld on Friday, October 2!
