On Tuesday in social media posts, the Oscar-nominated star of “Juno” has come out as transgender, introducing himself as Elliot Page. 

The actor formerly known as Ellen Page thanked supporters in the trans community for helping him on his journey to “finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”

He recently starred in the Netflix superhero series “The Umbrella Academy.” Page, 33, burst onto the Hollywood scene with an Oscar-nominated role as a pregnant teenager in 2007 sleeper hit “Juno.”

The actor also appeared in the 2009 roller derby comedy “Whip It,” the 2010 science fiction hit “Inception” opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, and the 2012 Woody Allen comedy “To Rome with Love.”

Page came out as gay in 2014, quickly become a flagbearer for Hollywood's LGBTQ community, and married dancer Emma Portner in 2018.

While largely absent from big-budget Hollywood blockbusters since 2014's “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” Page has repeatedly shrugged off suggestions of being typecast or shunned by Tinseltown. “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now... I'm scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the 'jokes' and of violence,” wrote Page in his post identifying as transgender.
