(Reuters) - Actress Ellen Page, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in "Juno," came out as a lesbian on Friday at a Las Vegas conference for gay teens.
"I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," the 26-year-old actress said in a speech that drew roaring support from an audience at the Time to Thrive conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign.

Who is Ellen Juno?
This is “unexpected”? She’s a hollyweird “actress” for Pete’s sake!
Just another soldier of homosexuality working with Hollywood, the media and this Administration trying to make 2% of the population seem like 50% as with all the other minorities they champion.
She’s always had a tomboyish look.
I Dunno! Juno?
My problems have been solved. The world is now right. And if I only knew it would just take learning that she sleeps with other girls.
And it was probably the most important thing this girl has done in her life. She now has a platform to get attention.
Since when do you have to hide being gay?
With all these new homosexuals out there running around, I’m expecting to see another explosion of the AIDS epidemic and the sexual deviants placed on the endangered species list.
Translation: “I’m having trouble finding work and maybe I’m not cool anymore, so I’ll do women as well as men to get the job.”
I’ve got an idea. Why don’t all the gays have a national “coming out” day where they all make YouTube and Twitter announcements and we can get this all over in one fell swoop.
She was praised and loved on this site because of the movie “Juno”. I suppose that will change now.
The problem with that is they don’t get their individual moment in the sun as does this person. If 10,000 people come out as once, the names will be mentioned in one very long paragraph.
Now we know why this announcement!
Good career move.
If I come out and announce I am straight, will I get a headline?
However, I have always said I am just a lesbian trapped in a man’s body.
To quote the MSM: “Unexpected!” </sarc>
Why not do research before saying something so stupid. She did 5 tv/movies in 2013 and is in the new X-Men Movie for 2014. This is why we look dumb when we rattle off crap that is an outright lie.
Another one bites the dust........
“She” would probably test XY. She looks like a little boy dressed in drag.
She’s not a bad actress - I really liked her in “Hard Candy”.
Funny thing is, I went to IMDB and saw what she looked like. She is actually very beautiful. I am sorta surprised that she feels she can’t find a man. I would imagine many would stand in line to date her (and much more lol).
Exactly!!! So there’s still hope that she’s actually bi. That’s not half bad.
My actual guess is she feels tainted by the supposed anti-abortion message of ‘Juno’ and wants to let everyone know shes not a closet right-winger.
Never heard of her until now.
I came out as a lesbian years ago. But the fact that I am male has lessened the impact of it somewhat.
Another sad pervert bragging about their poor choices....
I always watch detective movies to find out if their homosexual lovers get their retirement benefits.
She’s had a bunch of boyfriends, and also (ahem!) linked to Drew Barrymore, so it doesn’t seem like such a big revelation.
You are a brave person. I think the LGBT community needs to add a letter for your predicament. :-)
Who gives a crap....I see maybe three movies a year and this is not going to be one of them!!
It always amazes me when people run away from conservatism. Look at Patricia Heaton .a big time conservative who not only had one hit tv show, she is working on her next one already. You can be conservative in Hollywood and still be a success. It always stunned me when I see actors and actresses become liberal (especially if they grew up in the Mid-West) for no other reason then taxes. Why would you want to pay 60 percent of your movie profits to the federal government and then add state taxes which in California are not cheep. That part always was a mystery to me. Heck even if you make 20 million a film and end up with 7 million to me is a rip off.
I think it would have been real news if she’d ‘come out’ as ‘straight.’
I liked her on Trailer Park Boys.
Who? So what?
I heard she was going to enter the NFL draft.
“that drew roaring support from an audience at the Time to Thrive conference”
Make that the “Day to Decay conference.”
Announce you are straight.
What a great idea. Start building groups that represent white males, straights, Christians. Go public with it.
Force the left to start talking about it. Then show them how ridiculous they are.
We need to fight like Alinsky. The left hates it.
Anyone remember Anne Heche ....came out lesbian....career flourished....decide she wasn’t lesbian after all.....haven’t heard from her since. Want plenty of work in Hollyweird...turn queer!!!
So did I. She was very good as Mr. Leahy’s daughter.
I see less than three; however, this increasing presence is part of various aspects of culture and society and eventually will oozes into political discussions.
Yes, they need to add an “N” for normal. Never gonna happen, though ‘cause the LGBT doesn’t do normal.
I enjoyed the movie “Juno”, but the few other films I’ve seen her in she was very forgettable. I don’t think this announcement will do much to enhance her career. Lesbians are a dime a dozen in Hollywood.
“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission”
It’s been years since ANYONE has had to hide or omit the fact that they’re homosexual in hollyweird.
