Ever since we saw Ellen Page in Hard Candy, with her short ‘do and tomboyish mannerisms, we had the inkling that she could very well bat for our team. The star of the critically acclaimed new flick Juno looks sort of like a young Tegan and/or Sara. But maybe that’s just how all Canadian girls look. (If that’s the case, we’re heading north!) But while Page isn’t out (and was at one time linked to X-Men 3 co-star Ben Foster), several things set off our gaydar:
*She’s an outspoken feminist.
*According to her imdb profile, she enjoys playing basketbal, soccer and going snowboarding and skiing.
*Was quoted saying, “As a girl, you’re supposed to love Sleeping Beauty. I mean who wants to love Sleeping Beauty when you can be Aladdin?”
*Her wardrobe largely consists of Converse and flannel. She was surprised to be asked to pose with other actresses for a photo spread in Vanity Fair, telling NPR, “… Do they know how tall I am, how I dress?'”
*She has said numerous times that she’s very eager to begin filming Jack and Diane, her upcoming film about lesbian werewolves.
*She did an interview for Curve (about X-Men, borrring!) so she obviously reads the lesbian mag–at least that one issue.
