Another addition to the list of Canada’s pride is the young and talented lady Ellen Page. Fresh from her success in the Award-winning comedy-drama film Juno, the 21-year-old hot and sexy actress recently received both Golden Globe and Academy Award best actress nominations for her role as Juno MacGuff, a 16-year-old high school student who tries to deal with her untimely pregnancy.
Ellen is widely known in the independent movie circuit. She first appeared in a television movie, Pit Pony, at the age of ten. This eventually led to roles in a number of small Canadian films and television series. At age sixteen, she was cast in an independent film, Mouth to Mouth.
In 2005, the hot and sexy Ellen gained critical praise for giving one of the most complex, disturbing, and haunting performances in the psychological thriller film Hard Candy. Her career was further boosted when she landed the part of Kitty Pryde (a.k.a. Shadowcat) in the blockbuster hit X-Men: The Last Stand. She gained wider audience and greater prominence outside the independent circuit with that successful Marvel superhero flick.
And now, with the success and many rave reviews of her recent indie film Juno, Ellen’s other yet unreleased indie movies (An American Crime, The Tracey Fragments, The Stone Angel, and Smart People) will get their wide releases early this year. The hot and sexy celebrity has also been attached to star in Michael Lander’s Peacock, opposite Cillian Murphy, and in Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut Whip It!, both films to be released in 2009.
