Elliot Page on his romance with Olivia Thirlby

In his memoir Pageboy, Elliot Page revealed a lot of things no one knew about. Namely, during the filming of the movie "Juno", Page had a secret romance with Olivia Thirlby. Page was in love with Olivia, and there was great chemistry between them.

He was particularly attracted by the fact that Olivia was experienced, had charisma, and knew how to attract attention. "I was taken aback the moment I saw Olivia," he wrote. "Embodied and bold, her long brown hair moved in slow motion.

We were the same age, but she seemed so much older, capable, and centered. Sexually open, far removed from where I was at the time. But the chemistry was palpable, it pulled me in." Page felt shame next to her. However, after a while, he felt more and more relaxed, and they became friends who spent a lot of time together.

"She had much more experience," he said. "I was closed off. It was rare I let anything in, but I felt comfortable with her, and I began to poke my head out of its shell. We became friends quickly, spending a lot of time together."

Elliot Page on the key moment

Page revealed that she and Thirlby were spending more and more time together.

Things grew into something much bigger. During one stay in a hotel room, Thirlby admitted that she liked Page. "She was about to start making lunch, when she looked directly at me and said point-blank, 'I'm really attracted to you,'" Page said.

"'Uh, I'm really attracted to you, too.' At that we started sucking face. It was on. I had an all-encompassing desire for her, she made me want in a way that was new, hopeful." There was a huge desire on both parts they obviously never talked about.

Thirlby knew how to arouse passion in Page. "It was one of the first times someone would make me cum, the first time I would open up. And we started having sex all the time: her hotel room, in our trailers at work, once in a tiny, private room in a restaurant."
