Ellen Page: ‘Freeheld’ parallels my own journey out of the closet
Actress Ellen Page came to fame in the title role of “Juno” and also played Kitty Pryde in the X-Men film franchise. Now she co-stars with Julianne Moore in “Freeheld,” the fact-based drama about one woman’s fight to give her pension rights to her partner. She tells the TODAY anchors that it was a “privilege” to work on the film, which she says has parallels to her own journey of becoming uncloseted as a gay woman.
