A weight has been lifted from Ellen Page’s shoulders, after the acclaimed actress came out as gay on Valentine’s Day this year.
Since then, the “Juno” star has done interviews about how happy she’s been since the announcement, including an appearance on “Ellen” and a cover story for “The Hollywood Reporter.”
But in her “THR” profile, she also got candid about the “super, super disturbing” sexual abuse allegations plaguing “X-Men” director Bryan Singer.
“I guess the truth will come out in the way that it does, but it’s hard to hear about someone being in that situation, someone you like working with,” she told “THR.” “Whatever comes of it, I do think that there’s a systemic issue of people in places of power manipulating and abusing young people.”
Singer, who helmed “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” is being sued by two men who claim to have been sexually assaulted by the director when they were minors.
Page’s comments contrast starkly with those made by stars like Diane Keaton and Scarlett Johansson, who have worked with Woody Allen, who was accused of sexual assault by Mia Farrow’s daughter, Dylan.
