Ellen Page:‘I was outed by director Brett Ratner’
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ELLEN PAGE is the latest actress to speak out against director and producer Brett Ratner.

She claims he outed her in public before she herself had fully realized she was gay.

She says it happened on the set of “X Men: The Last Stand” when she was 18.

The director has yet to respond to Page’s accusation. He has recently been accused of harassment, assault and rape — claims he denies.

He is suing a former employee who says he forced himself on her.

Page has written a lengthy Facebook post, which contains explicit language, describing what she says happened when the cast and crew met before filming started.

She describes how the director pointed at her and told another woman she should sleep with her “to make her realize she’s gay.”

The actress explains that she had not come out to herself at the stage: “I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak.”

She says she felt “violated” and that no-one spoke out to defend her.

She describes it as a “public, aggressive outing” that left her feeling ashamed.

Ratner is one of the most successful film-makers in Hollywood and has produced or directed “The Revenant,” “Jersey Boys” and the “Horrible Bosses” movies.

Six women including Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn have accused him of harassing them.

Page’s account has been supported by one of her “X Men” co-stars, Anna Paquin. She tweeted: “I was there when that comment was made. I stand with you.”

Page’s post tells how she has been working since she was 10. She says she has met “respectful collaborators” during her career.

But she also talks about abusers who “want you to feel small, to make you insecure, to make you feel like you are indebted to them, or that your actions are to blame for their unwelcome advances.”

She also criticizes people in Hollywood who know that people are being harassed and “choose to look the other way.”

She calls for other people to speak out, saying: “You are breaking the silence. You are the revolution.”
