Ellen Page Confesses She was scared over her Gay Revelation

April 30, 2014 

Ellen page talks about the time when she decided to come out in the open about her sexuality.

The 27-year-old actress announced that she was gay in February this year.

"I was very nervous. I was very nervous, yes," Page says in the new issue of Flare "I was emotional, deeply, deeply emotional...You think you're in a place where you're all I'm thrilled to be gay, I have no issues about being gay anymore, I don't feel shame about being gay, but you actually do. You're just not fully aware of it. I think I still felt scared about people knowing. I felt awkward around gay people; I felt guilty for not being myself."

But in the end, Page says it was finally time to be honest about her sexuality. "The more time went by, the more something just happened," she said, adding, "an ‘Oh my god—I want to love someone freely and walk down the street and hold my girlfriend's hand.'"

"I expected so much more hate," Page said of peoples' reactions. "It was just remarkably positive, which is beautiful, because it's indicative of the change that's happening."

She says one of the major delights after her coming out is being able to wear edgy and androgynous suit like the one she was spotted in at the GLAAD Media Awards in L.A. "I felt happy and confident and the difference was huge," she said.
