Ellen Page says hateful anti-LGBT rhetoric from Vice President Pence and other political leaders "needs to f---ing stop" in the wake of a reported attack on an openly gay actor.

“Let’s just be clear. The vice president of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana,” Page said of Pence during a Thursday appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show.”

“He believes in conversion therapy. He has hurt LGBT so badly as the governor of Indiana,” the 31-year-old “Juno” star told host Stephen Colbert.


Pence's office denied in a statement last year to The Hill that the vice president supports "gay conversion therapy." 

As Indiana's governor, Pence signed a religious freedom law that was criticized as a pathway to legal anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

Page also cited the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett during her impassioned remarks while promoting her new Netflix series, “The Umbrella Academy.”

Smollett, who stars on Fox’s “Empire,” told police in Chicago that two men approached him on Tuesday and yelled racist and homophobic slurs, before placing a rope around his neck.

“I don’t know him personally. I send him all of my love,” Page said, her voice rising. “Connect the dots. This is what happens.”

“If you are in a position of power, and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them, and you go through the trouble.  You spend your career trying to cause suffering — what do you think is going to happen?” the Canadian-born Academy Award nominee, who came out publicly as gay in 2014, continued.

“Kids are going to be abused and they’re going to kill themselves. And people are going to be beaten in the street,” Page told Colbert.

“I’ve traveled the world and I’ve met the most marginalized people you can meet. I’m lucky to have the time and the privilege to say this: This needs to f---ing stop,” she said to a standing ovation from Colbert’s audience.

At one point, Page apologized to Colbert for being so “fired up” on the late-night show.

“But it feels impossible to not feel this way right now,” she added, “with the president and the vice president Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard Pence21 Republicans vote against awarding medals to police who defended Capitol on Jan. 6 Virginia couple pleads guilty to misdemeanor charges linked to Capitol riot Juan Williams: GOP preparing the ground to steal an election MORE, who, like, wishes I couldn’t be married.”
