Ellen Page, The Hollywood Reporter

Ellen Page may not be the mushy, lovey-dovey type in a lot of her movies, but it's a different story when it comes to real life.

The actress told The Hollywood Reporter that she's "such a romantic" and sees kids in her future. "I'm so stoked to get married," Page said. "I'm such a romantic, it's awful. And I don't think I'd want to make a kid, but I'd love to raise one. I'd love to raise a kid."

The 27-year-old star, who came out as gay in February 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), also explained what life has been like since coming out.

"I knew I would be happier. But I wouldn't have anticipated just how f--king happy I am and how every tiny little aspect of my life feels better."

When it came to going public about her sexuality, Page said, "For so long I just sort of thought, 'You just can't. I love being an actor, it's a huge part of my life, so I'm going to keep that private.' And, 'Oh, I have to keep it private because my job is about creating an illusion' and kind of all those bullshit excuses. Because I don't see heterosexual actresses going to great lengths to hide their heterosexuality."

Page is currently not involved with anyone, but she may have dropped a hint as to one lady she's interested in. During her appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Ellen seemed to get excited when Rachel Maddow was brought up.

"So…are you telling me that's my in with Rachel Maddow? You distracted me! What were we talking about?"
