    Ellen Page found fame "unhealthy" at the beginning

    The 'Juno' actress rose to fame after starring in the film and admits the change overnight left her feeling overwhelmed

    She told The Sunday Times magazine: "Acting sort of came out of nowhere when I was 10. I always liked drama class and school plays, but the idea that I could become an actress just wasn’t a thing in my family. Then, when I was 15, I really started to love film, art, books. I became committed to making it happen. When Juno came out I went from mostly anonymous to not anonymous overnight. That is a very interesting thing to adjust to.

    "It puts you in this place where you can get control, and it changes financial elements of your work, but it also came with a lot of things that weren’t very healthy for me. But now I feel I’m falling in love with acting again because I’m comfortable in my own skin."

    Ellen previously confessed she was "very depressed and anxious" in her early 20s.

    She said: "I have a responsibility to be out now, because I have these resources. I can access therapists and security and support. But the reality is a lot of people can be in severely grave danger. I think, for instance, it would have been very harmful for me if someone had outed me earlier. When I was 20, someone wrote an article with the headline: 'The Ellen Page Sexuality Sweepstakes' in the Village Voice. 'Is Juno a you know?' I never even touched a woman outside until I was 27. I was very depressed, and very anxious. I was not well."
