Ellen Page Breaks Her Silence After Jussie Smollett Investigation Developments

Ellen Page is speaking out about Jussie Smollett after going viral for her thoughts on the alleged hate crime back before all the new developments. If you missed it, police now believe Jussie staged the whole crime over his Empire salary.

The 32-year-old actress penned a guest column for THR, writing, “The conversation around Jussie Smollett has led us all to examine hate violence and its implications and aftermath. I had no reason to doubt Jussie. My work on Gaycation — the docuseries I produced to chronicle LGBTQ+ stories from around the world — introduced me to many survivors of hate violence. I know how prevalent and pernicious it can be. If this situation was staged, it could make victims even more reluctant to report these crimes. Very real crimes.”

She continued, “While the media and public debate the case and await more information, we must not lose sight of the very real, endemic violence that LGBTQ+ people, people of color and other underrepresented communities face every day.”

“I ask you not to question our pain, not to draw into question our trauma, but to maintain, wholeheartedly, that hate violence exists. The merits of one case should not and cannot call that into question. The media coverage does not convey the reality and totality of the cruelty and danger we face. This is the story that must be told,” Ellen added.

Ellen Page Opens Up About Being Pressured by Hollywood to Not Come Out as Gay

Ellen Page is featured in the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to say…

On being pressured by people in Hollywood to not come out as gay and to wear dresses and heels: “I was distinctly told, by people in the industry, when I started to become known: ‘People cannot know you’re gay.’ And I was pressured – forced, in many cases – to always wear dresses and heels for events and photo shoots… As if lesbians don’t wear dresses and heels. But I will never let anyone put me in anything I feel uncomfortable in ever again.”

On how media speculation about her sexuality affected her mental health: “I was 20, I had just fallen in love for the first time with a woman, and I was still navigating my own stuff, while people were writing articles headlined: ‘Ellen Page’s sexuality sweepstake’. There was a tabloid magazine that I saw at every checkout, in every gas station, with a picture of me on the cover, and the question: ‘Is Ellen Page gay?’ It was very detrimental to my mental health.”

On how society has become more accepting of the LGBTQ community – but there is still a lot of work to be done: “I remember being in my early 20s and really believing it was impossible for me to come out. But, over time, with more representation, hearts and minds have been changed. It doesn’t happen quickly enough and it hasn’t happened enough, particularly for the most marginalized in the community. But things have got better.”
