Let's Get To Know Ellen Page
Ellen Grace Philpotts-Page - you know her as Ellen Page - is Canadian. That does not stop her from being one of the most badass ladies on the Hollywood scene. Her starring role in Juno made her a cultural icon, but we want to take a closer look at just who this Canadian badass is away from the spotlight. The X-men, Inception, and Gaycation actress is so much more than what she portrays for the camera. We're going to look into Ellen Page's net worth, birthday, fashion sense and relationship status, among other things (also: ab goals). Shall we?
Ellen Page: The Basics
Born on February 21, 1987, Ellen Page is 30 years old. She's damn sure thriving since she looks so much younger than her actual age. Ellen Page was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her mom, Martha, was a teacher and her dad, Dennis, was a graphic designer. She bounced around schools a little bit, attending three before graduating from the Shambhala School in 2005. She also spent a couple years in Toronto, participating in the Interact Program at Vaughan Road Academy. Ellen Page is close friends with 30 Days of Night and Charlie Bartlett actor Mark Rendall, who is also Canadian. Ellen Page is vegan, an atheist, and a self-described pro-choice feminist. She was one of the first Hollywood figures to challenge the sexism and harassment that has recently rocked the industry, speaking out against it in interviews as early as 2013. Ellen Page has also refused to take roles that portray her as a stereotypical female, instead taking on roles that allow her to challenge the norm. Have we mentioned that Ellen Page is one badass mamacita? She has been attacked for her outfits, being called homeless for her fashion sense, among other things, but Ellen Page clearly rocks whatever happens to make her feel comfortable and confident at any given time. We'll give a "hell yeah" to that.
Ellen Page: Relationship Status
Ellen Page came out as gay in Las Vegas on Valentine's Day 2014 while attending the Human Rights Campaign's "Time to Thrive" conference. More than a year after coming out, Ellen Page publicly announced that she was in a relationship with Samantha Thomas, a talented artist and avid surfer. The two were an item until early 2017, though an announcement of their split never really happened. That brings us to Ellen Page's current squeeze, Emma Portner. Their relationship became public in July 2017 when a photo of them kissing went viral. Emma Portner is a professional dancer and is nine years younger than Ellen Page. Emma Portner also directs music videos and occasionally has Ellen Page star in them. The couple appears to have the same fashion sense and often dress in similar outfits.
Ellen Page: Net Worth
Ellen Page has an estimated net worth of $14 million, which has almost all been earned from her acting career. Basically, she doesn't have to do anything she doesn't want to, and never will again as long as she's smart with her money. That huge number shouldn't be a surprise given the movies that Ellen Page has been in: Juno, the X-men series, and Inception, just to name a few. For a lot of actors, that would be a career.
That doesn't even mention Ellen Page's award-winning TV series Gaycation, which got a 94% approval rating on Google. In Gaycation, Ellen Page and Ian Daniel traveled around and checked out LGBTQ cultures all over the world.
Ellen Page: Awards
It doesn't seem like they matter to Ellen Page, but she has won a lot of awards. Juno earned Ellen Page the most trophies, including an MTV Movie Award, Teen Choice Award, an Independent Spirit Award, and a Gotham Independent Film Award. The movie also earned Ellen Page nominations for best actress from both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. In 2008, at the height of the Juno craze, Ellen Page was also named Young Hollywood's Hottest Coolest Young Veteran - Female. Ellen Page also won an MTV Movie Award for Best Scared-As-Shit Performance in 2011 for her role in the blockbuster Inception.
In Conclusion, Ellen Page is Awesome
How can you not love Ellen Page? Seriously. She's cute as a button, filthy rich, slays the fashion game, acts in some of the biggest movies in Hollywood but continually challenges the system, fights for women's rights and LGBTQ rights, and has an amazingly talented girlfriend. Once, she was a girl from Nova Scotia whose biggest claim to fame was that she was a Canadian TV celebrity. Now, she's an amazing woman, award-winning actress, and cultural icon. Once she hit the screen in Juno in 2008, there was no stopping her. Ellen Page is killing it right now, and she doesn't show any signs of slowing down. She was in the recently-released remake of Flatliners, and she has a movie called Robodog that is currently in post-production. Along the way, we all know Ellen Page is going to continue being the strong, fashionable, and loving badass that we've all come to admire. Keep killing it, Ellen Page. Keep killing it.
