Elliot Page has revealed he had a sexual relationship with his Juno co-star Olivia Thirlby while filming the 2007 movie.
Elliot, who came out as transgender in 2020, recounted the fling in his new memoir Pageboy.
In a memoir excerpt obtained by Page Six, the 36-year-old actor claimed he had sex with Olivia “all the time”, writing, “Her hotel room, in our trailers at work, once in a tiny, private room in a restaurant… We thought we were being subtle. Being intimate with Olivia helped my shame dissipate. I didn’t see a glint of it in her eyes and I wanted that – done feeling wretched about who I am.”
The Inception actor admitted to being “taken aback” the moment he saw Olivia and remarked how she seemed so much “older, capable, and centred”.
“Sexually open, far removed from where I was at the time. But the chemistry was palpable, it pulled me in,” Elliot wrote of his co-star.
Elliot recalled that the relationship began after Olivia confessed she was “really attracted” to him. Page said he reciprocated her feelings and the pair then began “sucking face” in a hotel room.
Before his gender transition, Elliot publicly came out as gay in February 2014.
Olivia publicly identified as bisexual in 2011. She has been married to boom operator Jacques Pienaar since 2014.
