Elliot Page has claimed that he had a secret relationship with a very famous actress.
The Whip It star came out as transgender in December 2020 and he’s since opened up about the difficult times beforehand.
Page is set to release a memoir, titled ‘Pageboy’, and during its promotion, he has revealed that at one point, he was romantically involved with a fellow celebrity.

In an interview with People magazine, the Hard Candy actor says that after he came out as gay – in 2014 – he experienced ‘a time of exploration’.
In an excerpt from ‘Pageboy’ shared with the outlet, Page claims he was romantically involved with Kate Mara.
Their alleged relationship apparently took place while they were filming 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Page says Mara was ‘the first person I fell for after my heart was broken’.
The House of Cards actress ‘had a boyfriend at the time, the lovely and talented Max Minghella’.
Reportedly, Minghella was supportive of the pair exploring their feelings for one another.
Page claims Mara told him: “I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can.”
The 36-year-old says: “I think my relationship, or whatever you want to call it with Kate, very much encapsulates a certain dynamic that I consistently found myself in, which was falling for people that – I think a lot of us do this – who aren’t fully available.”
Page goes on to claim that he and Mara are still close, adding: “I think the love and care that we have for each other is its very own special thing.
“Separate from the intimacy that I write about.”
Mara and Minghella went their separate ways after four years of dating and the actress is now married to actor Jamie Bell, with whom she shares two kids.
Page adds that Mara has read his memoir and will be appearing at the book event in LA in June to promote it, as per MailOnline.

Elsewhere in the memoir, Page recalls being verbally assaulted by an A-list actor at a party.
The 36-year-old claims the star was an ‘acquaintance’ who allegedly told him: “You aren’t gay. That doesn’t exist. You are just afraid of men.”
They allegedly continued: “I’m going to f*** you to make you realise you aren’t gay.”
Page hasn’t named the actor in his memoir, however, he notes the A-lister ‘will hear about this and know it’s him’.
