Marriage-off after three years with actor Elliot Page (33) and dancer Emma Portner (26): After their separation last summer they had now made the "difficult decision" to get divorced, the film magazine quoted "Hollywood Reporter" on Tuesday from a joint communication from the couple.
So they have the greatest respect for one another and wanted to remain good friends.
Page had filed for divorce in court in New York, reported the promiportal »TMZ.com«.
At the beginning of December, the Canadian announced on social media: “My name is Elliot.” And further: “I love that I'm trans.
And I love that I'm queer. ”However, according to his own account, the actor is also afraid of rejection and bullying:“ The truth is, although I feel deeply happy at the moment, I am afraid of the hatred, the 'jokes'. and violence, ”Page continued.
The acting star became famous as Ellen Page with the film "Juno" (2007).
The film earned him an Oscar nomination for best actress.
In 2014, Page had declared in an emotional speech at a conference of the Human Rights Campaign that he was a lesbian.
"I'm sick of hiding," he said, among other things.
In January 2018, Page and the Canadian dancer and choreographer Portner announced their marriage.
After films like "Inception", "To Rome With Love" and "Freeheld - Every Love Is Equal", Page has appeared in the Netflix series "The Umbrella Academy" since 2019.
At the end of 2017, Page had made public that he was once involuntarily outed by director Brett Ratner.
At a meeting of the entire film crew of "X-Men: The Last Resistance" Ratner is said to have pointed to a colleague and said to Page: "You should fuck her so that she can realize that she is a lesbian." Page was then 18 years old old.
