Ellen Page, who won the hearts of moviegoers as the pregnant teenager in the 2007 film “Juno,” told a Las Vegas audience on Friday, “I'm here today because I am gay.”

The actress was speaking to a conference of counselors who work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teenagers.

Page, 26, said she suffered for years while afraid to come out. “I'm standing here today with all of you on the other side of all that pain,” she said.

She received an Oscar nomination for her performance in “Juno.”
