Ellen Page Biography
The Canadian actress is a self-confessed tomboy who enjoys wearing baggy clothes. She prefers cuddling up to her dogs Julie and Sprout to hanging out in plush hotels and she calls herself a feminist.
There has been a lot of speculation in the press about her sexuality, which has been fuelled by her remarks about how much she admires Patti Smith and Jodie Foster.
A photo shoot of Page with her co-star in "Whip-it" Drew Barrymore kissing full on the lips for Vs and Marie Claire Magazines has only added more fuel to the fire. In the film, which also marked Barrymore's debut as a director, Page plays a beauty queen who trades in her crown to team up with Barrymore and join a Roller Derby.
Since the film they have been seen out a lot together and headlines screamed "The Hot Lesbian Couple in Hollywood."
Page said, "Meeting Drew was a surreal moment in my life, you could just feel her warmth and kindness immediately and the way she carried herself was so grounded, then it was like, oh it's going to be great, and then it went Oh My God, I'm really crazy about this person, it just grew and grew and grew."
Barrymore has said the close friendship is platonic but she thinks Page is very sexy and she really loves her body.
The Canadian rose to fame for playing the title role in "Juno" for which she received both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. She also won back-to-back Austin Film Critic Association Awards for Best Actress in "Juno" and "Hard Candy."
On Television she has appeared in "Trailer Park Boys" and "Regenesis" and in June 2008 she was named on Entertainment Weekly's Future A-list Stars list.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia she enjoyed climbing trees and playing with action figures when she was not acting. She began at 4-years-old appearing in numerous school plays and first appeared in front of the cameras at the age of 10 in the CBC TV movie "Pit Pony" which later became a television series.
At 16 she appeared in an independent film "Mouth to Mouth" shot in Europe and "Hot Candy" was made in 2005. This was critically acclaimed and Page was described as giving "one of the most complex, disturbing and haunting performances of the year".
In 2010 she served as spokesperson for Cysco Systems, a series of advertisements in three commercials set in Page's hometown of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
Ellen Page was one of 30 celebrities who participated in an online series for the "United States Campaign for Burma," calling for an end to the Military Dictatorship in Burma.
Page drives a Smart Car which she describes as "awesome". The only problem she has is when she drives it on the freeway as she feels it is going to be blown away like a coffee cup.
