Ellen Page, the fresh-faced star of the 2007 sleeper hit "Juno," declared at a press conference late Friday that she is gay.
"I'm here today because I am gay," Page, 26, said at an event for homosexual teens in Las Vegas hosted by the Human Rights Campaign, a pro-gay rights group.
"I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered," she said.
