Ellen Page Says Brett Ratner ‘Outed Me’ in Powerful Post About Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

Page, who publicly turned out as gay in 2014, continued her Facebook post, explaining in which the alleged “aggressive outing” left her with “long standing feelings of shame.” She also claimed, however, in which her encounters with Ratner weren’t the only times she has experienced sexual harassment in Hollywood. 

“When I was sixteen a director took me to dinner (a professional obligation as well as a very common one). He fondled my leg under the table as well as said, ‘You have to make the move, I can’t.’ I did not make the move as well as I was fortunate to get away by in which situation,” she alleged. “I was sexually assaulted by a grip months later. I was asked by a director to sleep using a man in his late twenties as well as to tell them about in which. I did not. in which is actually just what happened during my sixteenth year, a teenager inside the entertainment industry.”

Page, who described acting in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love, as the “biggest regret of my career,” called attention to the stories of marginalized groups who are often silenced in their struggle for justice, as well as those who “chose to look the various other way” as powerful men continued their path of abuse. 

“I want to see these men have to face what they have done. I want them to not have power anymore. I want them to sit as well as think about who they are without their lawyers, their millions, their fancy cars, houses upon houses, their ‘playboy’ status as well as swagger,” she wrote. “What I want the most, is actually just for in which to result in healing for the victims. For Hollywood to wake up as well as start taking some responsibility for how we all have played a role in in which.”
