Ellen Page Is Gay So She's Totally Not Dating Alexander Skarsgard (VIDEO)

Ellen PageEllen Page is gay. Yes, the woman who supposedly used to date Alexander Skarsgard. Which obviously never happened -- or Ellen hadn't quite figured things out yet. I'm gonna go with never happened. The star of Juno bravely and nervously announced her sexual orientation at an LGBTQ conference by saying:

I'm here today because I am gay. 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.

Once was a time when coming out was absolutely verboten (Rock Hudson), then it just became kind of career destroying (Ellen DeGeneres) but now it's like Eh? What? Didn't we already know? a la Lance Bass, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, and Queen Latifah. We even have sports figures coming out now.

I'm not sure which category to put this one in, probably more like, Wasn't she dating Alexander Skarsgard?! Pfft. Lame rumors.

Ellen said: "I am here to today because I am gay. [standing ovation!] And because maybe I can make a difference. I feel a personal obligation and social responsibility. I'm tired of hiding and tired of lying by omission."

You go, girl, be yourself! Let others know it's okay too!

Anyway, congrats on Ellen coming out! Here's her very touching speech:

 

Did you know she was gay? Do you care?

I must have finely tuned gay-dar, knew she was gay in Hard Candy. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

I've thought she might be, but who cares? She's still a good actress and adorable as can be. :)

I honestly never thought about it because it doesn't really matter.

I was so confused yesterday because I thought she came out ages ago and I was wondering why everyone made such a fuss over it now. Wasn't half as confusing as one headline which proclaimed that Juno is a lesbian because that would have seriously ruined the movie.

Didn't know. Don't care. Think it's great that she is showing support for others, though.

Sorry don't know who she is. And who cares if she is gay. That is ashame in our society that we have to announce it. It's the same has coming out and saying I am interacial or I am black. No one should care we are all GOD's children. That's a great speech.

Lovely young woman. Gay, straight, who cares. How can anyone lead a happy life, if they can't be who they are? Glad she can now.
