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.
