If Ellen Page seems especially upbeat and happy during her interviews promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past it’s because she is.
X-Men: Days of Future Past star, who came out as a lesbian on Valentine’s Day, did not anticipate how happy she’d feel after going public.
‘The reaction been really beautiful and I think it’s been so beautiful because, to me it’s so indicative of the change that’s happened and how society has evolved. I couldn’t be more grateful for just the support I’ve had, and quite frankly for me, it was just pretty immediate, and I felt like all this toxicity and worry and baggage that I was carrying, just sort of vanished. I don’t think I could even have anticipated how happy I feel.‘
Another reason for her to be happy is the box office reception for the latest X-Men film which grossed more than $110 million at the box office in the US Canada over the Memorial Day weekend.
