Oscar nominee Ellen Page admitted at Time to THRIVE that she is a lesbian, according to a Feb. 14 report from The Hollywood Reporter.

Page, who will next be seen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” opened up about her sexuality at the conference – held in Las Vegas, Nev. – that promotes the welfare of LGBT youth. She told the audience that she was there “because I am gay.”

“And because maybe I can make a difference,” the 26-year-old added. “To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

Page admitted that she’s had an uncomfortable feeling since her rise to fame after 2007’s “Juno,” for which she received her Oscar nomination.

“It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing – at least in some sense – and industry that places crushing standards on all of us,” she said.

After Page came out, the Time to THRIVE organizer, Human Rights Campaign, tweeted the news.
