Elliot Page shares the moment that has brought him the most joy since announcing he was a transgender man in December 2020.
In a preview of an interview with Oprah Winfrey slated for release Friday on her Apple TV + series “The Oprah Conversation,” the 34-year-old said he found “the most joy.”
“Get out of the shower and the towel is around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like, ‘Here I am.’ And I don’t have time to panic, ”he said, before bursting into tears. “It’s being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body for the – probably the first time.”
The actor added that his tears were “tears of joy.”
Earlier this year, Page spoke to Time magazine about her decision to have the surgery and described the experience as something that made her feel like herself. Page called puberty “utter hell” and told the publication that the surgery “has completely transformed my life.”
He also told the post that he spent a lot of his energy being uncomfortable with his body and the surgery helped bring that energy back.
Page notably came out to fans last year with a heartfelt Instagram post, sharing that he would use the pronouns ‘he’ and ‘they’ and said, “I feel lucky to be writing this. Be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.
He went on to say, “I love that I’m trans,” Page wrote. “And I love the fact that I’m queer. And the closer I stand and fully embrace who I am, the more my heart grows and the more I blossom.
