Elliot Page sat down with Time Magazine to discuss his transgender journey. The Umbrella Academy star revealed that he had surgery to remove his breast tissue, with the goal of having a more masculine appearance.
He said: “It has completely transformed my life,” adding that while surgery doesn’t define being trans, it gave him the freedom to escape the “total hell” that was puberty.
Page said that he first felt like “a boy” at age 9 when he was allowed to cut his hair short. “I wanted to be a boy. I would ask my mom if I could be someday.”
