    Ellen Page has arrived home after her coming out speech this weekend.

    The 26-year-old actress, who announced she's gay Friday night during the HRC's Time to THRIVE conference in Las Vegas, touched down at L.A.'s LAX Airport earlier today.

    Dressed casually in brown boots, blue skinny jeans, a striped shirt and black jacket, Page kept her head down while exiting the terminal. The Inception star tried to remain low profile behind black sunglasses and a black baseball cap. Page carried another jacket while leaving the airport.

    Page came out just four days ago. "I'm here today because I am gay," Page said to the crowd at the Time to THRIVE event. "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."

    "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," Page said. "Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me."

    She added, "You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard."

    Over the weekend, Page tweeted to fans, "Just wanted to take a moment to say how moved I am by all the support. I feel profoundly grateful right now. Xxxx."
