According to the (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4694436/Ellen-Page-kisses-dancer-Emma-Portner-Emmy-nod.html) Daily Mail , Portner starred in Justin Bieber's "Life is Worth Living" music video. She was also part of Bieber's Purpose World Tour. Portner, who is just 21, is nine years Page's junior.

Page, who recently received an Emmy Award nomination for her "Gaycation" docuseries, came out publicly in 2014. While at the "Time to Thrive" conference in Las Vegas, the "Juno" star said that she is gay. "I'm here today because I'm gay and because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," she said (via (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ellen-page-comes-as-gay-680563) The Hollywood Reporter ).

A year later, Page opened up about her relationship with Thomas. While speaking with (http://www.etonline.com/news/172955_ellen_page_talks_being_able_to_openly_love_girlfriend_samantha_thomas/) Entertainment Tonight , the 30-year-old actress said that she feels extremely lucky to have her girlfriend in her life. "To love someone openly, to hold someone's hand walking down the street, it's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing. And I'm just lucky enough to have someone in my life as special as Samantha. Page and Thomas were last spotted walking their dog earlier this year, but there has been no buzz regarding their split.

After her memorable coming out, Page also told (http://metro.co.uk/) Metro UK that her work in the industry has become more exciting and impactful. "I feel more excited and inspired and in love with my job than I ever have," she said.
