She's outfitted in her preferred uniform of jeans, red flannel shirt and black bomber jacket, a "TOM BOY" trucker hat pulled snugly over her head.It begins with a handshake and a world-weary smile, and not long after she's reminiscing about the warm welcome that greeted her on the different already.'" PHOTOS: ' X-Men: Days of Future Past' Star Ellen Page-- Exclusive Portraits of the Actress Over the course of a wide-ranging two-hour conversation, Page gets fired up (about "binary gender systems," as well as discussion of her producing her first film), starry-eyed (at the thought of one day getting married and raising kids) and flat-out silly (about her addiction to renaming people's pets on Twitter).The topic had been broached before, and each time, the 47-year-old Bush -- herself a lesbian, who raises two daughters with her wife, with whom she's been with for 18 years -- would lead her client down a winding road of what-ifs, and the conversation would end with Page feeling that the moment was not yet right. Page had the experience of two same-sex relationships that she'd painfully had to keep secret: a two-year romance that began shortly after 's premiere and a second, pricklier affair that played out after that.She still bristles at the memory of the "neuroses of keeping it quiet and always thinking about it and thinking about when you're staying in the hotel and when you're leaving the hotel.She also proves disarmingly open about her years-long battle with depression. "And obviously that's a very personal thing to say, but I say it to encourage whatever other people are feeling. No more." In 2014, as roadblocks to same-sex marriage topple throughout the country and such gay-friendly shows as proliferate, the prospect of another celebrity coming-out story might not seem all that remarkable.
Fergie (from the Black Eyed Peas (from that one Oprah flash mob video)) is now expecting! It looks like she and her husband, Josh Duhamel, had sex and are now expecting a little baby because of it: "Josh & Me & BABY makes three! The good news is that it looks like the baby will be able to count. They're all hot and work together every day so they have to end up banging, right? I got the stink-eye at my local bodega because I was holding hands with someone of the opposite sex.To celebrate, we're taking a look back at Page through the years, including this photo of the happy couple attending the world premiere of 'Flatliners' on Sept. Just half a day earlier, the compact movie star (5-foot-1 in sneakers, and she's usually in them) who broke through playing a punk-rock-loving pregnant teen in 2007's character Kitty Pryde, whose powers allow her to pass through solid matter, Page had traversed the proverbial closet door as gracefully as if it never had been there at all.Yet while many more since have followed suit, it's unprecedented for a celebrity at Page's level -- under 30, Oscar-nominated and still wielding the clout to get projects of a certain budget greenlighted -- to come out of the closet at all, much less make the unequivocal statement, "I'm gay." Robin Roberts, to offer one recent high-profile example, chose to do it by thanking her girlfriend in a Facebook post, while Jodie Foster said, well, just about everything the G-word during a speech at the 2013 Golden Globes that drew complaints for being needlessly opaque. "You have no idea how hard that moment is, even though they're not fully saying what you want them to say," she says, addressing Foster's critics."It's not about you." Page's declaration did not come entirely out of the blue.In addition to teaching dance, Portner, of Ottawa, Ontario, has choreographed for Justin Bieber, according to her bio on the Broadway Dance Center website. Speaking at a conference in Las Vegas to promote the welfare of LGBT youth, Page got a standing ovation after she told the crowd:"I am here today because I am gay. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time.
