Actress Evan Rachel Wood and reality TV star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi also congratulated Ellen, as did former *N Sync star Lance Bass. He tweeted: "I just watched Ellen Page come out! Wow! What a speech! Congrats!! (sic)"Ellen made her announcement at Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive event in Las Vegas, Nevada with a passionate statement. She said: "I'm here today because I'm gay. And because maybe I can make a difference - to help others have an easier and more hopeful time."Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out."My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."
