Elliot Page Talks His True Identity, Says He 'Knew I Was a Boy When I Was a Toddler'

Elliot Page is opening up.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the 34-year-old Umbrella Academy actor talked about his coming out journey, saying that he’s always known his true gender.

“All trans people are so different, and my story’s absolutely just my story. But yes, when I was a little kid, absolutely, 100%, I was a boy,” Elliot said. “I knew I was a boy when I was a toddler. I was writing fake love letters and signing them ‘Jason.’ Every little aspect of my life, that is who I was, who I am, and who I knew myself to be.”

“I just couldn’t understand when I’d be told, ‘No, you’re not. No, you can’t be that when you’re older,’” Elliot recalled. “You feel it. Now I’m finally getting myself back to feeling like who I am, and it’s so beautiful and extraordinary, and there’s a grief to it in a way.”

Elliot first came out as transgender back in December 2020. At the time, he received support from wife Emma Portner, but revealed several weeks later that they had been separated for months.

Eliot recently sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview airing on Apple TV+ on Friday, April 30. You can watch the teaser below.
