Julianne Moore and Ellen Page

Thanks to pinknews
Two great actresses! They worked together in the movie Freeheld.

Julianne Moore has said she was honoured to work with Ellen Page, who could be her “authentic self” in Freeheld.

The pair appear together in the film about a police officer with terminal cancer who wants to leave her pension benefits to her lesbian partner.

55-year-old Moore said she was pleased that Page, who came out as gay in 2014, could be her “authentic self in a part”

Speaking on This Morning, Moore said: “This was the first time that Ellen’s played a gay character on screen and she was delighted. She felt that she was able to be her authentic self in a part.

“Even though the story is very sad, it was also joyful for her that she was able to participate in that way.”

Going on, Moore said she asked Page about her coming out, as research for the film.

She said: “Ellen would answer any question that I had about what was it like to be out? What is like to feel you can’t talk about your sexuality when you’re at work? What does it do to you emotionally? She was very anxious I think to share all that.”

Moore said she initially rejected the script, but her daughter convinced her to revisit it.

She continued: “It was deliberately misleading at the beginning so you thought you were going to be watching this story about a police officer but really it’s this tremendously beautiful very personal love story and that’s why I did it – I was so moved by it.

“I like a love story, just as everybody else does and I think we all build our lives around our relationships. So it was important for me as a human being and then yes the progress that we have made and continue to make in the world with gay rights.”

The Oscar-winning actress Moore earlier this week spoke out in support of the LGBT community in Italy, after being asked by a reporter whether it was right for same-sex couples to raise a child together.

“Having a family is a matter of human rights,” she said.

“Everyone should have the right to have a family. People taking care of each other, that’s what it means to be a family.”

The Italian Senate began debating a bill to legalise same-sex civil unions last month.

Her upcoming project Gaycation

Thanks to ellenpage.org
VICE has released the first trailer for VICELAND’s »Gaycation«, which has Ellen Page and co-host Ian Daniel travelling from Japan to Brazil, Jamaica and back to the USA. In each episode, the duo explores the ways in which different cultures deal with gender, sex, and sexuality by immersing themselves in the local LGBT community. Filming the series was a new experience, one that proved to be very personal and moving, for the Canadian actress, who found herself in front of the camera with no script to follow. In a recent telephone interview with BuzzFeed News, Page and Daniel both recapped some of the emotional moments during the production:

“I think I expected to definitely have emotional experiences, I don’t know if I would have anticipated … I don’t think you can anticipate the actual degree of what you’re going to feel,” said Page of the eye-opening experience. “I’m a privileged person. I’m a privileged gay person. [The show] helped me understand, even more so, how much more vulnerable people are.” Daniel added: “Each episode you’re learning so much. It’s these one-on-one interactions that are so rare, that you don’t have in your everyday life, so you come out of each episode expanding each time.”
