Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her sexuality

Director Brett Ratner has been accused of outing Ellen Page before she was ready

ACTRESS Ellen Page tore into X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner, accusing him of sexually harassing her - and outing her as a lesbian at a time when she was not prepared to come out.

Page's Facebook post, in which she claimed Ratner "outed" her as gay - said: "I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself". Page was 18-years-old at the time.

The model, who is based in NY, told Page Six that the incident occurred after Ratner flew her to Los Angeles for a photoshoot in 2008.

The New York model - who said she doesn't want to be named because she doesn't want to be associated with Ratner - said Ratner, who also has a career as a still photographer, flew her to Los Angeles in 2008 for a shoot. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak.

"He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: 'You should f - k her to make her realise she's gay.' He was the film's director, Brett Ratner". "He "outed" me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic".

"I proceeded to watch him on set say degrading things to women".

I said no and he insisted.

Earlier this week, comedian Louie CK admitted that he had masturbated in front of a number of different women over almost a two decade period, saying allegations made in The New York Times exposing the story were 'all true'. I was eighteen and had no tools to know how to handle the situation.

In an email, two of Ratner's assistants who were reportedly inside the vehicle told the news website that they saw nothing inappropriate.

Ratner, who has also been accused of sexual harassment by six women in recent days, helped finance the summer blockbuster, and took home a sizable stake of the $412million box office gross.

The director denies the allegations and said he is filing a defamation suit against one of his accusers.
