Ellen Page Makes Her Red Carpet Debut With Her Girlfriend, Samantha Thomas
Ellen Page brought a very special date to the premiere of her film Freeheld at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday: her girlfriend, artist Samantha Thomas. The couple, who were last spotted together in New York City in August, looked so in love as they held hands and posed for photos together. Ellen, who wore black trousers, black boots, and a tie, gushed about Samantha to E! News at the event. "I'm in love," she said. "Walking down the carpet holding my girlfriend's hand is pretty special. It's pretty awesome."
The actress came out as gay while on stage at the Time to THRIVE conference in Las Vegas in 2014. "I'm here today because I am gay," Ellen said, "And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility."
