Ellen Page: Coming Out Gave Me 'Freedom' to Wear What I Want (Video)

Ellen Page says she's more comfortable wearing what she likes now that she has publicly come out as a lesbian.

The actress says she favors "jeans and a T-shirt," or on formal occasions men's suits, but previously might have thought twice about what her clothing said about her sexual orientation.

"I get to wear what I want and not have conversations about it," Page told The Hollywood Reporter. "Coming out gives you more freedom because you're not thinking about those things."
