In an emotional press conference on Feb. 14, the ‘Juno’ actress bravely revealed that she’s gay and that she hopes to help promote issues for the gay community.

So brave! Actress Ellen Page attended Time To THRIVE, a conference promoting issues of the gay community, on Feb. 14, but it wasn’t just to show support — she was also there to announce that she too, is gay.

Ellen Page: Actress Comes Out

“I’m here today because I am gay,” the Juno and Inception actress told the Las Vegas conference audience. “And because… maybe I can make a difference.”

The actress was given a standing ovation for making her brave announcement. She continued: “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years, because I was scared to be out.”

After the conference, Ellen tweeted to the Human Rights Campaign, who held the event, thanking them for giving her the opportunity to come out:

It took a ton of courage for Ellen to do what she did, and her bravery will encourage so many others to feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Michael Sam: Potential NFLer Comes Out

Ellen’s huge announcement comes less than a week after Michael Sam, a former college football player, came out to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.” Michael is entering the NFL draft in 2014, and if he is selected by a team he will become the first out player to play in the NFL.

That could be a momentous event, as was Ellen’s courageous coming out on Feb. 14. What do you think of it, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

Bisexuality, look it up

Posted at 4:57 PM on February 15, 2014  

It must be such a relief to finally get out of the closet. Now if Kristen Stewart could only be so honest. But that girl seems to have a problem with lying and cheating, so I’m sure it’s harder for her to deal with the truth.

If you’re a fan of Kristen Stewart, you need to deal with what she’s really like. If she is bisexual, do you have a problem with that?

She hasn’t been seen with a man in almost a year, maybe that’s why they broke up in May. She has been very close to Alicia since October, 2012. People used to think KStew was bisexual when several pic of her kissing Nikki Reed appeared. Those two used to go everywhere holding hands.

You almost never see a pic of Kristen when Alicia isn’t right next to her. Alicia flew to Germany last summer to visit her on the set of Sils Maria. They have matching tatts. They share clothing and drive each others cars.

They spent all the holidays together last year, and KStew even went down to Long Beach to meet Alicia’s parents (there are pics of this). And Kristen to Alicia to an intimate family party the day after Thanksgiving.

This is way, way more than anything you say about two 23 year old women who are “just friends.”

You’re one sick PR for pattinson and with your offensive comments against Stewart, can not stop thinking of ordinary people who see what is going on all website on line. Targeted attack on a young woman is inexcusable in any form It is a cowardly way.
There is no need to spread lies pattinson fan about young woman Krist Stewart. Pattinson fan girl is obsessed with Stewart, she’s on every article spew hatred and lies about Kristen.
You just can’t handle the truth. Eyes are still on Kristen because of that she is very smart and a modest and talented young woman. Kristen´s a free woman. There is no excuse for you and your obsession with attacking a young movie star. Kristen’s icon, and muse for many people. Usually without the presence of the cameras or watching, she stays on the ground and sheś support of her friends and family. Kriste Stewart is sincere and honest person.

Ok, the only thing they said about Kristen Stewart was that she’s probably gay. There was 0 attacking of her, or her character. Just saying what we’re all thinking. She be gay.

That’s not much of a surprise. It seems sad to me when people come out and say they don’t want to hide or keep the secret anymore when people who didn’t even know them thought it was pretty obvious. They put themselves through it for nothing in a way.

I know, right? Kristen Stewart has been flitting between men and women her whole life. There were tons of rumors about her and Nikki Reed, after they went everywhere holding hands and VF published pics of them kissing.

There’s a video on youtube right now of Kristen kissing Nikki in a car, they knew the video was being taken and they didn’t care. That was before Summit shut all that down. It didn’t fit with their Edward and Bella fantasy they sold to fans.

But since Rob dumped her last May, she’s replaced him with Alicia Cargile. She even went to Alicia’s office Xmas party at Nomad, just like a dutiful spouse. Who does that?
