“Juno” star Elliot Page, who posed as a transgender man last year, says she collapsed at the afterparty premiere of the 2010 film “Inception” because wearing a dress and heels to every event harmed his sanity.
“It was like a cinematic moment. That night, after the premiere at the afterparty, I collapsed. This is something that has happened frequently in my life, generally corresponding to a panic attack, ”said Elliot, according to a report published by femalefirst.co.uk.
Elliot Page added: “At the end of the day, it’s every experience you’ve had since you were a toddler, people say, ‘The way you sit is not distinguished, you walk like a boy. … ‘, every aspect of who you are being looked at and put into a box in a very binary system. This is what it leads to. “
Elliot Page also shared that he couldn’t look back at photos from the 2008 Oscars, when he was nominated for Best Actress for the movie “Juno,” as Ellen Page.
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey on her Apple TV + series “The Oprah Conversation,” he recalled, “It was a pretty intense time. I remember it felt so impossible to communicate with people how sick I was, because obviously there is so much excitement. The movie unexpectedly became a big hit, I got pretty well known, all of these things and I felt like I couldn’t express how much pain I was in.
“I couldn’t look at a photo of that red carpet. People could look at that and say, “Oh my God, that person is crying the night they went to the Oscars.” It prevents the ability to allow yourself to not only feel the pain, but also think about the pain, start to sit down and put it all back together and finally face it all, ”Page says Elliot.
