Elliot Page and Kate Mara : The “House of Cards” actress, 40, and the “Umbrella Academy” actor, 36, reportedly started dating while Page was filming 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” according to an excerpt from the memoir published in People Friday and confirmed by USA TODAY. This information is contained in the actor’s upcoming memoir “Pageboy” (Flatiron, 288 pp., out Tuesday). In his much anticipated biography, Page takes readers on a journey of self-discovery while growing up as a trans actor in Hollywood.
Page claimed that Mara “has read the book” in an interview with People and that Minghella was okay with Mara exploring her love for Page.
In an interview with People, Page recalls Mara telling him, “I never thought I could be in love with two people, and now I know I can.
This was immediately following Page’s coming out as gay, and she recalled the period as one of discovery and heartache. “I believe that my relationship, or whatever you want to call it, with Kate, very much embodies a particular dynamic that I continuously found myself in, which was falling for individuals who aren’t totally available—I think a lot of us do this. The feeling of safety that comes with it, the highs and lows, and the serotonin boost, before it all fades away.
