“I knew I would be a happier person … I did not anticipate just how happy I would feel in every aspect of my life. Just an ease and a comfort. And it’s really been quite extraordinary to feel just the shift. It was pretty much overnight, too,” Ellen Page said about coming out in February.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that’s set to air on her show later this month, Page said, “It’s so nice to have people come up to me and tell me their story or, you know, say, ‘Hey, I’m closeted. Can you give me advice?’ Those are really beautiful moments to get to share with people.”

Even DeGeneres tells her how much more relaxed she seems. Watching the two Ellens talk about their shared experience of coming out in the midst of a high-profile career is about as warm and fuzzy as it gets. Excuse me while I tear up at my desk! [People]

–Ellen Degeneres tells People magazine that despite some recent tabloid headlines, behind the scenes, she and Portia de Rossi’s seemingly perfect relationship is, well, pretty perfect. Ugh, I love these two so much. Glad that at least one of my celeb relationship role model couples are still together and going strong! [People]
Actor life is rough, especially when you’re suddenly expected to gain 15 pounds for a starring movie role around the same time you’ll be meeting the president. You know, typical stuff. Watch Bradley Cooper tell Ellen the story of his awkward encounter at the White House sans underoos. Also, please note that when referring to the tuxedo he wore to the Golden Globes, he says he just “threw it in the bag.” Is that a dude thing? Is it just a charming, low-key actor thing? Like, when was the last time you haphazardly tossed expensive formal wear into a duffel or something? Either way, he’s almost too charismatic to stare at directly — might blind us all. [ABC News]
