Actress Ellen Page has come out as gay at an LGBT conference.
In an emotional speech at the Time to Thrive conference in Las Vegas, the Juno star talked about her sexuality and how Hollywood has affected her decision to speak up about it.
She told the crowd of LGBT teens: "I am here because I am gay".
"You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard."
Watch the whole of Ellen's amazing speech below.
