Who is Elliot Page dating?
Currently, Elliot Page is not dating anyone. ‘The Umbrella Academy’ star, at present, is enjoying his single life and is also busy on the work front. The 34-year-old actor is reportedly working on multiple projects that are expected to be announced soon. Page has wrapped up his work as a voice actor on a movie called ‘Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin’. If we talk about the small screen, the actor has voiced the main character in ‘ARK: The Animated Series’. The show is currently under production and is expected to hit the streaming platforms in 2022. Page first came out as a gay woman in February 2014 and subsequently as a transgender in December 2020. He also became the first openly trans man to appear on the cover of Time magazine in March 2021.
Revealing details about the procedure of his surgery, he told Oprah Winfrey in April, “I wanted to talk about it for a couple of reasons. I wanted to share with people just how much it has changed my life. I want people to know that not only has it been life changing for me, I do believe it is life saving and it's the case for so many people.” He continued, “Because there is such an attack on trans health care right now, when already there is such a lack of access or trans people who don't even want to go to the doctor”, as reported by People magazine.
Elliot Page’s divorce with Emma Portner
Elliot married Emma Portner, a Canadian dancer and choreographer in 2018. However, the duo went separate ways in mid-2020 before finalizing their divorce in early 2021. The duo had released an official statement saying, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.” Page has stayed single ever since.
Page and Portner first met on Instagram in March 2017 after she posted a video to a song by Sylvan Esso. When the band shared the video, it immediately caught the 'Inception' actor's attention who messaged Emma. The couple became official back in May 2017. Speaking to The Cut about her relationship, Emma said, "If anything, I’m happy for it. We try to hold hands in public. I try to join him at movie premieres. If we were a straight couple, I don’t think we’d push it so much. But it’s a chance for queerness to be out in the open."
