Actor Elliot Page confesses he's a transgender man

Elliot Page, a famous Canadian actor who came out in 2020, stating that he was a transgender man and had his breasts removed by surgery, admitted that the process of gender reassignment was "life-saving" for him. He made such a confession in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, Paige could not resist and burst into tears when Winfrey asked what brought the actor the most joy. He replied that he felt the happiest person after removing his breasts. He stated that the transgender ego transformation is a kind of "liberating experience" and this operation not only brought him back to life, but also gave new energy.

“I want people to know that it not only changed my life, but I also believe that it saves the lives of many other people,” said the actor.

The actor in an interview described his torment, which he faced when he had to come to the premiere screenings in dresses, because he was in the body of a woman. This was discomfort for him.

In March, Page underwent surgery to remove his breasts and admitted that the operation helped him "recognize himself in the mirror."

Recall that Ellen Page, on December 1, came out as a transgender man and changed her name to Elliot Page on her Twitter page. The actor urged to use the pronoun "he / they" in relation to himself.

Elliot Page is the first transgender man to appear on the cover of Time magazine. And she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the film Juno.

It should be noted that this is far from the only case in the history of modern cinema. Perhaps, many do not even guess, then the creative tandem of the sisters-directors Lilly and Lana Wachowski, who gave the world such sensational films as "The Matrix", "Cloud Atlas", "V for Vendetta", "Communication", "Invasion" and others not so long ago was the creative union of brothers Andy and Larry.

The brothers were talked about transgender even before they came out. For several years, the media have been forming information that Larry is leading and calls himself Lana. And today she is the first transgender director in Hollywood. In 2016 Andy became Lilly.

Another sensational case of transgender is the son of the singer Cher, who was born a girl and bore the name Chastity. In 2010, he announced his transition to another sex and decided to undergo gender reassignment surgery. They even made a documentary about his experience.

Today Chez Bono writes music, books, acts in films. His mother - the popular actress Cher - says that she is proud of her son.

Now, few people realize that the sexy actress Laverna Cox was born a boy and her name was Roderick. From childhood, the guy had an addiction to makeup and women's outfits. After Laverne confessed her specialties and became a woman, she gained immense popularity. Her most famous role is in the American TV series Orange is the New Black. She played a transgender prisoner, and her twin brother played the role before she made the transition and on the show. Plus, Laverna is the first transgender actress to be nominated for an Emmy and appear on the cover of Time.
