The Juno star publicly came out while speaking at an event in Las Vegas to promote the welfare of the LGBT community, saying: “I’m here today because I am 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.”

The Canadian actress added: “It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing—at least in some sense—an industry that places crushing standards on all of us. Not just young people, but everyone.

After coming out, the actress thanked her fans for their support, saying: “Just wanted to take a moment to say how moved I am by all the support. I feel profoundly grateful right now. xxxx.”
