Ever Graceful Elliot Page on Time Magazine Cover
The architect from Nolan's acclaimed Inception has graced the cover of Time magazine for an exclusive coverage where she talked about trans equality and shared details of his own struggle while accepting his true self.
‘Elliot Page Is Ready for This Moment‘, the article by Katy Steinmetz for Time has quoted him as saying that he wanted to cut his hair short as a young boy and that there was an “acute feeling of triumph” when he was finally allowed to do so. “I felt like a boy. I wanted to be a boy. I would ask my mom if I could be someday.”
Page had come to his true self last year when he took to his social media platform twitter to reveal and post an inspirational, heartfelt message:
Talking about the fight to ensure trans equality Page said “My privilege has allowed me to have resources to get through and to be where I am today, and of course I want to use that privilege and platform to help in the ways I can,” he further added. “Extremely influential people are spreading these myths and damaging rhetoric — every day you’re seeing our existence debated. Transgender people are so very real."
The actor has stated that it was the lockdown due to the pandemic which gave him time to think and "come out" to the world. Page added: “I had a lot of time on my own to really focus on things that I think, in so many ways, unconsciously, I was avoiding,”.
While the actor had come out as homosexual back in 2014, he said that “being out was impossible” given his career. In the interview, he talked about “being part of an industry that places crushing standards on actors and viewers alike”.
“There are pervasive stereotypes about masculinity and femininity that define how we’re all supposed to act, dress, and speak,” Page stated.
"I felt like a boy. I wanted to be a boy. I would ask my mom if I could be someday," he further added. During the course of the interview, Page also talked about struggling with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks, especially after the fame he received for his roles in "Juno" and "Inception".
"I just never recognized myself. For a long time I could not even look at a photo of myself," Page stated.
The only decision Page made to help him feel more comfortable in his own skin was to get top surgery, which is basically a surgical procedure to remove one's breast tissue. "It has completely transformed my life," he talks of the procedure, adding further that not all trans men have the surgery, and also remarks that it is quite expensive.
The news has already taken the social media by storm:
In a world where prejudice and discrimination is not so uncommon, Page has risen like a phoenix to champion the cause most neglected by the exisitng social structure.
