Ellen Page snapped on romantic stroll with girlfriend
The famously private star stepped out in public with her girlfriend recently – and caused quite the storm online.
Although some have been quick to criticise the media’s infatuation with celebrity’s doing seemingly regular things – such as eating lunch, shopping or divorcing – most fans relish the chance to take a sneak peek into their favourite star’s private life.
This is especially true when the star in question likes to keep a low profile – like actress Ellen Page, who recently took a walk with girlfriend Samantha Thomas – sending Twitter in meltdown.
The pair took time out together to enjoy the sunshine, shortly before the Juno star attended a Gay Pride festival in Jamaica.
The 28-year-old has not let her Hollywood status get in the way of her dedication to LGBT rights – yesterday attending a Pride event in Jamaica, where homosexuality is illegal and activists face regular violence and persecution.
Freeheld is based on the true story of New Jersey police officer Laurel Hester – played by Julianne Moore – and Hester’s battle while terminally ill to make sure her partner Stacie Andree – who is played by Page – receives survivor pension benefits, as their relationship wasn’t recognised.
Page revealed in February last year that she was gay, in an emotional speech to GLAAD where she said she was ‘tired of lying by omission’ about her sexuality.
