Ellen Page Fell into Depression Because of the Buzz Surrounding her Sexuality

Ellen Page fell into depression because of the buzz surrounding her sexuality

SEXUALITY: At the time of “Juno”, the actress, Ellen Page was not as comfortable with her homosexuality as today …

When Ellen Page was successful with Juno , she was still discreet about her love life. But the press was quick to seize it, which affected the actress at first as she explained to the Guardian . “When I was 20 years old, someone wrote an article titled:” The bets are open on Ellen Page’s sexuality “in the Village Voice . It concluded: “Juno is she you know what?” After that, I never touched a woman on the street until I was 27 years old. I was very depressed, very anxious. I was not well. ”

A committed actress

Ellen Page then decided to move away from Hollywood for a while. The time needed to gain self-confidence and to understand that she could do something concrete for the LGBT cause , which resulted in the Gaycation series.
