Juno Star Ellen Page Comes Out As Lesbian To No One’s Surprise

We loved Ellen Page as the rebellious pregnant teen in Juno. We loved her in X Men: The Last Stand. We love her even more now that she has declared her sexual orientation–on Valentine’s Day no less–to a standing ovation at the Human Right Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference for LGBT youth in Las Vegas.

“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page, 26, declared in her speech. “Maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

The rising star sited Orange Is The New Black’s Laverne Cox and NFL hopeful Michael Sam as inspirations for her decision to confirm what had long been an open secret in Hollywood.
