Ellen Page Comes Out as Gay: Glee Stars React

As you may have heard, actress Ellen Page came out as gay over the weekend, home skillet. And several Glee stars are singing her praises.

Ellen, 26 — who was nominated for an Oscar for her breakout role in 2007's Juno and appears in this summer's (confusingly titled) blockbuster, X-Men: Days of Future Past — came out at the Human Rights Campaign's "Time to Thrive" conference on February 14.

"I’m here today because I am gay ... and because maybe I can make a difference," Ellen told the audience at the event. "I am tired of hiding, and I am tired of lying by omission."

Glee star Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) — who is gay — tells People that Ellen shouldn't feel she was lying to people by keeping her orientation to herself until now. "When I was younger, I lied by omission," Jane says. "She should give herself a break and not call it 'lying.'"

"But I know what it is to feel like you can't be open and honest about your orientation," Jane continues. "Good for her!"

Meanwhile, other Glee actors have reacted to Ellen's news, including Grant Gustin (Sebastian) and guest star Ricky Martin (David):

It's sweet that these Glee stars are so supportive of Ellen's decision to come out. And is it just us, or would Ellen be great at playing a NYADA student?
