Ellen Page - "Teen Vogue" May 2008

Ellen Page -

Young Hollywood’s most in-demand actress Ellen Page takes the May 2008 cover of Teen Vogue. Here’s what she had to say on how life is now and what to expect of her career:

On life being surreal: “The Barbara Walters interview, the Academy luncheon, meeting Sissy Spacek— there have been all these moments that it’s really hard to wrap my head around. To be recognized with these women that I have so much respect for, it feels wrong, in a way. I’m insanely grateful, but its just like, ‘Really? Are you sure?’”

On staying grounded: “I absolutely adore acting. But I also know that this is a fragile industry, and I don’t want to attach my happiness to it. I still think about going to school, to study psychology or art history. I couldn’t do it now, of course. I think it’s a matter of the grass is always greener… (pauses) Not that I don’t think that the grass I’m on right now is completely green. It is.”

On focusing on the more tangible side effects of her success: “From this point on,” she says, “it’s just about looking at all these new opportunities. It’s cool to be able to try a whole bunch of things.”

On what to expect of her post-Juno career: “People expect me to do some kind of gritty look-at-me-I’m-such-an-actor thing, but that would have felt contrived.”

Starting this month, two films that Ellen, 21, shot before Juno are coming out: Smart People, in which she stars opposite Dennis Quaid and Sarah Jessica Parker as an “arrogant, b***** Young Republican,” and the drama The Tracey Fragments.

    I totally agree! Juno was an excellent movie, not the best movie ever, but a great movie with a lot of humor. Really nice. And ellen is a good actress, this role was pretty perfect for her, she was a great “Juno” ;-)

    She’s just a normal “kid” and that makes her more especial in the market. Such a great talent actress and so young.
