Ellen Page won’t let anyone make her feel bad about herself.
Over the weekend, some unnamed pastor sent Page, who recently came out of the closet, a letter.
The actress responded publicly on Twitter, writing, “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.”
Score one for Page. (Isn’t that the kind of comeback we’d expect from the woman who portrayed fast-talking Juno?)
In her coming out speech last month at an event for the Human Rights Campaign, Page said, in part, “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…[I’m] tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
Page has also recently been in the news because she is in talks to play John Belushi’s wife opposite Emile Hirsch in Steve Conrad’s upcoming biopic.
