Out actress Ellen Page said this week from the Sundance Film Festival that she was “scared” by presidential rhetoric on LGBT rights.

The 28-year-old actress was in Park City, Utah for the screening of her new movie, Tallulah, in which she plays a free-spirited woman accused of kidnapping a baby.

“In regards to LGBT rights and of lots of other rights for all minorities really, clearly there's been a scary rhetoric that makes me feel sad and disheartened and, you know, scared,” Page told the AP. “I hope it won't be the case. I hope we'll have people who operate from a place of love and are striving for true equality.”

“But, it's democracy,” she added with a laugh.

Late last year, Page, who came out in 2014, knocked Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee, saying that they seem “homophobic.”
