THE Inception actor Elliot Page, 36, was brought up as a girl by her teacher mother Martha Philpotts and his graphic designer dad Dennis Page before he came out as gay in 2014 followed by gender transition in December 2020.
The actor has now said that his memoir Pageboy has helped clear the air with his family for the “first time” about his journey, reports Female First UK.
He told The Guardian: “I’m nervous, but grateful for the opportunity to have written it. “It was really healing getting a lot of stuff out. It’s been very beneficial for my relationship with my mom. It has allowed us to talk about things for the first time in a meaningful, sincere way.”
As per Female First UK, the book tells how Elliot would try to pee standing up at the age of four.
He said in the autobiography: “I would press on my vagina, holding it, pinching and squeezing it, hoping I could aim.”
Elliot went on to self-harm from a young age and stopped eating as he battled with his image. As a youngster he wanted to look like Elliot, the young hero of Steven Spielberg’s film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and has a tattoo on his biceps that says EP phone home.
His book tells how he was abused by men and a woman as a teen and how he had relationships with famous actresses and one closeted star he refers to in the book only as Ryan.
But the memoir also tells how Elliot has found solace in mixing with actors he admires including Hugh Jackman, 54, and 62-year-old Julianne Moore.
