Ellen Page Says Brett Ratner Sexually Harassed Her On 'X-Men' Set

Ellen Page Says Brett Ratner Sexually Harassed Her On 'X-Men' Set

In a lengthy post to Facebook on Friday, Page alleged Ratner once suggested to a woman standing next to her that she have sex with the Halifax native "to make her realize she's gay". He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: "You should fuck her to make her realize she's gay".

The allegation by Page, who said she was not out of the closet when Ratner made the remark, is the latest in a series of sexual misconduct accusations against the film-maker. "I knew that I was gay, but I didn't know, so to speak". 'I had yet to find my voice and was not who I am now and felt pressured, because of course you have to say yes to this Woody Allen film. I proceeded to watch him on set say degrading things to women'.

"He "outed" me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic", she wrote.

Page also claims that during filming, she was reprimanded for refusing to wear a T-shirt that said "Team Ratner", thought he director "was not being punished nor fired for the blatantly homophobic and abusive behavior we all witnessed".

True Blood actress and X-Men co-star, Anna Paquin, supported Page on Twitter: "I was there when that comment was made".

This happened during a cast and crew "meet and greet" event, before the beginning of the filming of X Men: The Last Stand, where the actress played the character Kitty Pryde. When she was 16 years old, the actress already lived a similar moment: "A filmmaker has taken me to dinner (a professional obligation rather common)".

Representatives for Ratner have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment about these claims. I was sexually assaulted by a grip months later.

"If I, a person with significant privilege, remain reluctant and at such risk simply by saying a person's name, what are the options for those who do not have what I have?"

Page also tells that Ranter was the one who makes stupid comments on a woman on the sets. "It must be. It's sad that "codes of conduct" have to be enforced to ensure we experience fundamental human decency and respect.Inclusion and representation are the answer", she wrote. "He physically forced himself on me, at some point, I gave in and he did his thing", while Olivia Munn says that Ratner masturbated in front of her when she visited his trailer in 2004 (later telling her that he'd ejaculated on magazine covers featuring her face). In a latter portion she describes being sexually harassed by directors and others in Hollywood.

The rumor comes from gossip outlet Page Six, citing a Hollywood source that says Gadot doesn't want to be involved with the Wonder Woman franchise if a known harasser is attached.

Ratner's attorney, Martin Singer, released a statement last week slamming those actresses' allegations as "outrageous" and "derogatory", and noted that Ratner "vehemently denies" their claims. "White supremacy continues to silence people of color..." I want them to not have power anymore, ' she writes. "I've had the good fortune to work with many honorable and respectful collaborators both behind and in front of the camera", Page added.
