Ellen Page

W cover

1 Oct, 2014

ellen-page-royal-17sept14-01Page appears on one of three covers of the October 2014 issue of W magazine. She talks about being naked and performing.

I thought I was going to be an art teacher. I was way too scared to say I wanted to be an actor or a comedian. Then I took a performance-art class in college. You could do anything: People peed in jars and called it art. The class was silly, but I really liked performing. I had this theory that if you looked in the mirror and asked yourself a question, you had to tell yourself the truth. So, I asked, ‘What do you want to do?’ I stared in the mirror and said to myself, ‘I want to move to L.A. and be an actor.’ And that was that.
