Ellen Page accuses X-Men director Brett Ratner of homophobic harassment

Ellen Page called out Brett Ratner’s sexist behaviour

Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her 'F*ck her to make her realise she’s gay'

Delevingne also alleged in the post that Weinstein discouraged her from coming out. Ellen Page joined that group today, opening up on Facebook about the abuse and homophobia that has dogged her nearly since she began acting as a child.

The Juno star recalled the alleged incident as part of a lengthy Facebook post on Friday (10Nov17), when she detailed how widespread sexual harassment is in Hollywood, based on her own experiences. In other words, Ratner - whom Page stresses didn't know she was gay since she wouldn't officially come out for eight years - blatantly announced this older woman should sleep with Page to confirm her sexuality for her.

"'You should fuck her to make her realize she's gay.' He said this about me during a cast and crew "meet and greet" before we began filming, X Men: The Last Stand". "When I was 14 years old, my mother opened the door for me to answer honestly about the rumors she had heard about Gary Goddard - who was my mentor, teacher, and friend - being a pedophile", he writes.

Ratner is a prolific producer and director of a number of major films in recent years, including The Revenant, Jersey Boys and the Horrible Bosses series.

Earlier this month (Nov17), he issued a firm denial after six women, including actresses Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn, went public with sexual harassment and assault allegations against Ratner in a Los Angeles Times expose. She goes on to say that she knew she was gay but "did not know, so to speak".

I was being reprimanded, yet he was not being punished nor fired for the blatantly homophobic and abusive behavior we all witnessed. Page stated that "outing" someone is an act of "homophobia".

She's worked with many "honorable and respectful collaborators", Page wrote, but called misbehavior in the industry "ubiquitous".

At one point, she reveals, she got into an "altercation" with the director. Film producers later met with her in her trailer and said she "couldn't talk like that to him".

Soon after she posted on Facebook Page's co-star in the film, Anna Pauquin, tweeted her support writing "I was there when that comment was made".

Finally, she asks: 'If I, a person with significant privilege, remain reluctant and at such risk simply by saying a person's name, what are the options for those who do not have what I have?'

Page wrote of her anger at Roman Polanski still being feted, and of her regret in starring in a Woody Allen film, 2012's To Rome With Love. "I am ashamed I did this".

"What I want the most, is for this to result in healing for the victims", she continued.

"I was able to express my outrage at what he had done", he wrote. "Most importantly, I've learned that I'm not alone". "For Hollywood to wake up and start taking some responsibility for how we all have played a role in this".

The flood of accusations by others who have been abused represents a "long awaited reckoning", she said. ' I am grateful to anyone and everyone who speaks out against abuse and trauma they have suffered. You are breaking the silence.
