Ellen Page declares that she ‘loves’ girlfriend Samantha Thomas at TIFF


Ellen Page made her red carpet debut with her girlfriend Samantha Thomas two nights ago at TIFF. They came out for the TIFF premiere of Freeheld, the film where Ellen stars with Julianne Moore. We’ve seen Ellen with Samantha before – in August, they were pap’d together in NYC and I said Samantha looked a bit like Elle Macpherson. She does look sort of Elle-esque, although without sunglasses, I’m getting more of a “blonde Catherine Keener” vibe. At the premiere, Ellen wore YSL – I like her in leather pants! Anyway, Ellen and Samantha have been going strong for seven months and Ellen told E! News that it’s L-O-V-E.

Ellen Page had a special plus one at the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday night. At the premiere of her latest film Freeheld, the actress walked the red carpet with her girlfriend Samantha Thomas. This was the first red carpet for the couple. Why tonight, you may ask?

Page told me with a big smile, “I’m in love.”

Freeheld has been a passion project for Page so the premiere seemed like the right time for their glamorous public debut. Page told E! News exclusively that “walking down the carpet holding my girlfriend’s hand is pretty special.”

“It’s pretty awesome,” she added.

Aw, she’s in love. That’s really sweet. Ellen spoke to The Daily Beast about all things LGBT, her project with Vice (in which she confronts homophobia in politics) and Kim Davis too – you can read the full piece here.

    I really like them as a couple. I am so happy that she found love, all the best to them both

    So happy she’s at peace with herself and in turn is in love. I’ve always thought she was disarmingly cute but now she positively glows. I think she has a bright future ahead of her…
    Go Ellen!!!’m

    In a lot of pictures her girlfriend looks like Cate Blanchett, but not in any of these. Cute.

    Oh she is so precious!:D

    Ellen and I have the same problem. We’ll always look like 16 yr olds. I know I shouldn’t complain but damn it, I’m in my early 30s so stop carding me people! I’m a GROWN WOMAN! :-)
    Anyway, I’m happy for them…it’s nice to see people happy.

    • bettyrose says:

      LOL @ early 30s. I still get carded in my early 40s. Not because I look 21 but they card you if you *might* be under 30. No complaints here. :-)

        Not long ago I answered my phone and it was someone selling something and when I said I was not interested, she asked to talk to the adult who makes decisions in the house. WTF?! :-)

      • bettyrose says:

        Tash, a smoking habit would clear that problem right up! :-) But seriously, it can be really fun being “ageless” and being able to look like a kid in casual clothes one day, and a (youthful) adult in office clothes the next. Embrace it! :-)

    Seems like a nice couple.

    I’m glad she is happy but she looks like that woman’s kid :’)

    It really sucks that she hid her sexuality for so long. She must wonder what she was so scared of now. Nobody that matters even cares.

    Love the blazer and tie but the leather pants and boots look weird.

    Aww they’re sweet together. Her gf is definitely looking at her with love! Adorable.

    Ellen looks so much better these days than she did a couple of years ago; she basically never smiled on red carpets and seemed really reserved in interviews. It’s great to see her so happy and glowing now – beign true to herself.

    Good for her!!!!!!!!!!!!
