Vastavam web: Ellen Page has accused disgraced filmmaker Brett Ratner of homophobic behaviour towards her on the sets of 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand”.
In a lengthy Facebook post Page accused Ratner of making the slur about her to another actors during the first day of filming the movie, in which she was starring as Kitty Pryde.”I looked down at my feet, didn’t say a word and watched as no one else did either. This man, who had cast me in the film, started our months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea. He ‘outed’ me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognise as homophobic,” she added.
Anna Paquin, who also starred in the film, confirmed Page’s story on Twitter. “I was there when that comment was made. I stand with you. @EllenPage” Paquin wrote on social media shortly after Page went public.Months later, the actor said she was assaulted by a grip and was asked by a director to sleep with a man and tell him about it. “This is just what happened during my sixteenth year, a teenager in the entertainment industry,” she wrote.Page labelled appearing in Woody Allen’s movie the “biggest regret” of her career. Allen has been accused of molesting his daughter, Dylan Farrow.
