Ellen Page honors her 'hero' at GLAAD Media Awards

Apr 13 2014, 5:26pm CDT | by

Ellen Page honored her "hero" Laverne Cox at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night (04.12.14).

The 'Juno' actress, who revealed she is gay in February, credited the transgender 'Orange Is The New Black' star for inspiring her to come out before she presented her with the Stephen F. Kolzak award, for "making a significant difference in promoting equality for the community," at the star-studded ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old star said: "Many of you know that I officially came out on Valentine's Day, and one of the best things that came from that is to publicly show support for the people who I admire and give me courage. And I'm here to do just that tonight for one of my hero's Laverne Cox."

'Inception' star Ellen admitted she was scared to open up about her sexuality for a long time when she announced she was gay at Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive event in Las Vegas earlier this year.

She said at the time: "I'm here today because I'm gay. 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. I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out.

"My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."

Tony Dungy won the Super Bowl as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in 2007. But he didn't win over a lot of fans this week when he said he would NOT have drafted Michael Sam for his team, explaining that the first openly gay player in NFL history would be too much of a "distraction." "I wouldn't have taken him. Not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn't want to deal with all of it," Dungy told ...

Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch ‘in talks’ to star in ‘True Detective’ Season 2?

Jul 14 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I was a little bit late getting to the True Detective party. I only recently binge-watched the series, so I guess I missed out on a lot of the episode-by-episode drama and conspiracy theories. I enjoyed Season 1 a lot (I love crime stories and police procedurals), but I can see where people would be disappointed by the lack of some overarching conspiracy and takedown of more people connected to the murders. That being said, it was a well-written series with spectacular ...
