Ellen Page Interview
EXCLUSIVE | The star of Juno gives MTV News her reaction to earning an Oscar nomination for Best Actress...
Ellen Page is officially the hottest actress around after bagging herself an Oscar Nomination for Best Actress on Tuesday.
So MTV News had to track the 20 year old down to talk about the news and Juno- the cracking new comedy she stars in.
Overwhelmed Ellen recalled the moment she heard she was up for the award against Julie Christie and Cate Blanchett: We were coming from Paris on the train (Eurostar) and just getting to London when I heard. It was exciting.
Winning awards was something I was trying to keep out of my mind (but) its a surprise and very humbling, she added.
Page plays the title role in Juno- which tells the story of a teenager who gets pregnant and has to find parents to adopt the child. She told MTV News what attracted her to the role:
Its extremely refreshing and although its witty, unique and funny its also extremely genuine and honest.
The film also has nominations for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture
Diablo Cody wrote one of the best screenplays I ever read, said Ellen of the first time scriptwriter. It just blew me away. She text me when the Oscar nominations came out saying: I told you so.
The shy and humble actress- who also stars in Hard Candy and X Men 3- admitted she was unprepared for Oscars night and the fame that will follow.
Page said: I dont even know how to wrap my head around it, she said. Its definitely gonna be a bit of a transition period. I guess well just see what happens
