In an interview for the magazine People, Page talked about what will be read in his book, which is released this June 6. One of the great revelations that the American media knew was a situation that she narrates in a chapter entitled “Famous A–hole at Party”, in which he tells how a recognized actor in the industry attacked him for his sexual orientation.
Elliot remembers that he was at a birthday party in Los Angeles in 2014, when this man, whom he did not reveal his name, told him: “You are not gay, there is no such thing. You’re only afraid of men” and later added: “I’m going to fuck you so you realize you’re not gay.”
The actor mentions that at that time many people witnessed this attack, and for this reason he assured that he did not share the identity of this actor. “I’m not sharing his name on purpose, but he’ll find out about this and he’ll know it’s him.”
Later, in the same chapter, he tells that he met the subject in a gym, just a few days after the party, and told him: “I have no problem with homosexuals, I swear”, to which Elliot replied that he did. I might have homophobia issues. It should be remembered that this happened years before the actor changed his gender identity.
