Ellen Page’s Defining Moment

View the gallery

“Every time I read this script, I’m emotionally moved,” Page says of Freeheld, which is based on a real-life lesbian couple facing heartbreaking discrimination. “When I met Stacie Andree and she took me around the town and into the house that was her and Laurel Hester’s home, or to the convenience store where Laurel liked to get her coffee, I felt—even though Stacie had had this wonderful life—the emotional weight of her loss. That’s what hit me the most.” 

Page wears a suit by The Kooples from Bloomingdales, a sweater by Theory and sneakers by Vans.
