Let’s all say “yay!” for Ellen Page

Ellen PageActor Ellen Page, hot on the heels of her success in Hard Candy has dismissed questions that her new film, Juno is pro-life.

“I call myself a feminist when people ask me if I am, and of course I am ’cause it’s about equality, so I hope everyone is. You know you’re working in a patriarchal society when the word feminist has a weird connotation. “Hippie” has a weird connotation. “Liberal” has a weird connotation.”

Her response to the question of Juno not having an abortion is simply, that’s not the film.

It happens to be a film about a girl who has a baby and gives it to a yuppie couple. That’s what the movie’s about.
