She made her TV debut in the CBC television movie Pit Pony, which led to more roles in Canadian films and TV shows, including Trailer Park Boys, Mouth to Mouth and Hard Candy.
She also appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand, but it was her role as the title character in Juno that made her a star. Ellen Page was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. She later starred in Smart People, Whip It and Inception.
Ellen Page said, Ive never really been rebellious. Ive got a lot of support and Im not pushed so hard that I feel like Im going to burn out, which is what happens to a lot of actors in their early twenties.

Elle Page has described herself as a pro-choice feminist and tries to avoid stereotypical roles for teenage girls because she thinks they are sexist. She added in an interview with The Guardian, Ive been lucky to get interesting parts but there are still not that many out there for women. And everybody is so critical of women.
In 2007, she was nominated for Times 100 Most Influential People list. She also placed #86 on FHMs Sexiest Women in the World list.
In 2012, Elle Page received death threats on Twitter that stated, Im going to murder Ellen Page. Shes dead. The L.A. police investigated the tweets. No arrests have yet been made.
She has become interested in permaculture, simplifying my life and doing everything I can to develop more of a sustainable lifestyle. She spent a month in an eco-village called Lost Valley in Oregon. She even drives a Smart Car. The only problem is Ive been on the freeway and felt like I was going to be blown away like a coffee cup. She also participated in an online ad series for U.S. Campaign for Burma.
Ellen Page has also long been the subject about her sexual orientation, including a rumored Drew Barrymore-Ellen Page liaison. Ellen said, "The things people wrote about me when Juno came out no one should be allowed to write that about a 21-year-old kid. People treat [celebrity gossip] like its a joke." (telegraph.co.uk).
Ellen Page lives in Los Angeles, California.
