Ellen Page Came Out Today

At the Human Rights Campaign event in Las Vegas today, Ellen Page came out as a lesbian.

The HRC Thrive conference is an event supporting the LGBTQ youth. There was where Page spoke about the pressure of the spotlight and the toll it takes on someone. Also, she said she was gay.

The 26-year-old actress told the crowd “I’m here today because I am gay,” adding “and because 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.”

“It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing — at least in some sense — an industry that places crushing standards on all of us,” the star of the upcoming movie “X-Men: Days of Future Past” said. “Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me.”

Right? She gave me “that” vibe from the minute I saw her. Cute as s**t though and I’m currently enjoying her kick-ass PS3 game.
