Ellen Page seems to be happier after coming out last month. Others, however, feel negatively towards Page’s sexuality, including an anti-gay pastor via tweet. Page doesn’t seem bothered by the criticism responding to the unnamed pastor on her official Twitter page.
2 da Pastor who wrote me-Being gay isn’t a belief.My soul isnt struggling& I don’t want arms of Heavenly Father around me.A girls arms? Yes.
— Ellen Page (@EllenPage) March 22, 2014
According to Huffington Post, Page posted the hilarious tweet to her almost-900,000 followers on Saturday. It has been favored over 20,000 times, and retweeted over 10,000 already, despite numerous spelling and grammar errors.
Ellen Page officially came out of the closet in mid-February through an incredible speech at The Human Rights Campaign’s Time To Thrive conference. At the time, Page told the crowd the following:
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.
For some time, it was rumored Ellen Page was in a relationship with Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). However, it was also reported that Skarsgard doesn’t use his star power to score dates. After the dating rumors, Page had an important role in the video game, The Last of Us, which swept rewards and praise throughout last year, despite Page stating the game “stole her look”.
As of now and upcoming projects, Ellen Page will reprise her role as Kitty Pryde in the next installment in the popular X-Men franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as playing John Belushi’s wife, opposite Emile Hirsch, in Steve Conrad’s upcoming biopic, as reported by Yahoo.
Pertaining to the LGBT community in Hollywood, Ellen Page is one of many, before and after, who came out of the closet. Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnell, Zachary Quinto, George Takai, Jodie Foster, Chris Colfer, Adam Lambert, Lance Bass, and even Ricky Martin have already expressed their sexual preferences for the same gender. Also with gay marriage on the verge of being legal, more stars hiding their homosexuality are coming out.
In the end, Ellen Page came out because she was tired of constantly being something she was not. Page stated this in her speech when she said:
I do it selfishly because I am tired of hiding, I’m tired of lying by omission.
