Ellen Page Comes Out, Twitter Explodes: Twitter Roundup

By Rishbha Bhagi, Hollywood Staff

While most people spent their Valentine's Day out with their significant others or cuddling up with a tub of cookie dough ice cream (aka the best significant other in the world), Ellen Page spent the day at the Time to THRIVE conference in Las Vegas changing her life. She gave an articulate and heartwarming speech (see below) in which she came out for the first time in public. On top of the many obvious reasons why we can applaud this, there's also the victory over not having to pretend that she's awkwardly dating Alexander Skarsgard anymore. Page's genuinely moving speech garnered an overwhelming amount of support, not only at the Las Vegas Human Rights Campaign Foundation function, but also in the online celebrity world, with many of Page's peers commending her for her courage.

Love love LOVE @EllenPage & the message she sent out today! What a perfect way to end Valentines Day!
