Actress Ellen Page has said her anxiety
over coming out was unjustified.
The 27-year-old Page announced she's
gay on Valentine's Day during a speech delivered at Time to THRIVE,
an LGBT youth conference hosted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
and held at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Appearing Wednesday on Good Morning
America to promote her current film, X-Men: Days of Future
Past, Page was asked about the response to her coming out.
“The reaction [to coming out has]
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,” Page said.
“And 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,” she added.
