Ellen Page Quotes..."I'm a tomboy from Nova Scotia."
"It's much simpler to be tortured on camera or to be filmed losing your mind. Whereas a script that has characters who are honest, witty and genuine... is often much harder to act."
"When I feel strongly about something, I'm not so quiet."
"The quality most important to me, in the films I make, is honesty."
"Judging people you don't know for things you don't understand is just really stupid."
"The thing I like about acting is being able to lose yourself completely in someone else. I'm not that comfortable when I get recognized."
