    We always knew that Ellen Page is awesome, but she's also very brave.

    The actress came out as a gay woman tonight during a personal speech delivered at Time to THRIVE, a conference to promote the welfare of LGBT youth held at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

    "I'm here today because I am gay," Page said to the crowd.  "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."

    After delivering the personal and moving news, celebs began tweeting support for the star on Twitter.
