Drew Barrymore Urged Ellen Page To Come Out of The Closet

Drew Barrymore has never really hid the fact that she has dabbled in lesbian relationships with various Hollywood women. She even exchanged a passionate kiss with Liv Tyler at the Oscars several years ago, totally raising eyebrows. She has also admitted to dating a lot of women in her younger years before settling in to married life with Will Kopelman. Back in 2009 Drew starred in Whip It with Ellen Page and it began a fabulous relationship for the two.

According to the March 10th print edition of National Enquirer Drew was absolutely head over heels for Ellen and if Ellen had been brave enough to live an openly gay lifestyle back then they could have easily become a Hollywood power couple. Instead she needed to protect her privacy and Drew eventually moved on but the two have remained great friends. It was actually Drew who encouraged Ellen to quit hiding herself from everyone and to just be true to herself once and for all.

Ellen obviously took Drew’s advice and announced to the world this past Valentine’s Day that she is done hiding her true identity. Drew is rumored to be proud of her friend and promised to be there for her no matter how the public reacted to Ellen’s announcement. Obviously the reaction has been very supportive for Ellen, but do you think that this new level of honesty will change the dynamics in her relationship with Drew? Could there be more going on here than just friendship? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!


This reeks of bs but if it was true, they would have given MRod & Cara a run for their money.

Even a fictional Drew/Ellen relationship is better than anything with Cara in it.

What is this crap

so what this is telling me is 33-34 y.o. Drew was maybe dating 22-23 y.o. Ellen.

if this is true, i'm judging you Barrymore

That's pretty much Michelle and Cara. Altho Michelle is 35 I think
sapitacherry 5th-Mar-2014 11:29 pm (UTC)
trust me, i'm judging Michelle too
anna_karenina_x 5th-Mar-2014 11:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah she's stoked to land herself a 21-year-old supermodel. No wonder she's kinda clingy

i don't get why people get their panties in a twist over age differences like this, i truly don't.
__allodoxa 5th-Mar-2014 11:48 pm (UTC)
not to mention when you're in a sea of straight people (or those that wish to remain strictly closeted), age takes a backseat to just finding someone you can be yourself with.
moddchicc 5th-Mar-2014 11:21 pm (UTC)
No need to judge since Drew was with Justin Long then and Ellen was fooling around with Alia Shawkat
bizarrre 5th-Mar-2014 11:24 pm (UTC)
Wait, whaaaa @ Ellen and Alia?
croutonochrist 5th-Mar-2014 11:33 pm (UTC)
They were ~travel companions~, which always seemed like a "nice" way of saying couple. But then again, they could have just been actual BFFs.
muzicnem 6th-Mar-2014 12:24 am (UTC)
Why? Ellen was an adult.
vervain 6th-Mar-2014 07:35 pm (UTC)
why ellen is an adult?
outpour 5th-Mar-2014 11:23 pm (UTC)
this fanfic
salsaa 5th-Mar-2014 11:25 pm (UTC)
I thought it was Alia Shawkat.
manita_bestija 5th-Mar-2014 11:26 pm (UTC)
Drew isn't a straight woman who has ~dabbled in lesbian relationships~ she is bisexual. thank you.
firelakie 6th-Mar-2014 03:18 am (UTC)
aschvanzandt 6th-Mar-2014 04:03 am (UTC)
didn't she say she was straight again though
croutonochrist 5th-Mar-2014 11:37 pm (UTC)
No one was saying this kind of bullshit before Ellen was out. Can't Drew just be a good friend? Why only now was she ~secretly in love~? God, tabloids are like middle school girls. A straight(well, bisexual)woman can't be friends with a gay woman without people assuming they're together.

Lol this is so made up.

I like the part about the "passionate kiss" with Liv Tyler. It was literally a little hello kiss that got photographed and blown way out of proportion.

moddchicc Re: 5th-Mar-2014 11:47 pm (UTC)
I actually forgot all about that kiss, lol.

overprotected Re: 6th-Mar-2014 01:26 am (UTC)
for real. you get a picture of anyone giving even the most casual of embraces and that split second that is photographed can look way more passionate / romantic than it was in context or when viewed in whole

it's like that picture of zach quinto & sarah paulson that looks like they're going in for some kind of final-scene-of-a-rom-com kiss, but was in actuality a .5 second congratulatory peck when one of them won an award
wauwy 6th-Mar-2014 12:04 am (UTC)
I actually had no idea Drew Barrymore was bi.
landwarinasia 6th-Mar-2014 12:08 am (UTC)
Wasn't there some heavy speculation that Ellen and Alia were dating at this time?
groundcrown 6th-Mar-2014 12:32 am (UTC)
lmao ok
jonesingjay 6th-Mar-2014 02:10 am (UTC)
drew was so hot in the early to mid 90s
jdgrl47 6th-Mar-2014 02:31 am (UTC)
Jesus, Drew was all over Ellen during the press tour for this. It always made me slightly uncomfortable, it didn't seem fully reciprocated. I mean I can't claim to know anything, it was just a vibe I got.
callonme_84 6th-Mar-2014 03:21 am (UTC)
i would have been so annoyed if they dated because I love DREW and can't stand Ellen Page

ya know because she's so ellen pagey....

itspokerface 6th-Mar-2014 03:49 am (UTC)
Ellen looks really pretty in that picture
toxic_illusion 6th-Mar-2014 04:12 am (UTC)
Drew is wearing my all time favorite dress. I love that dress so much.
bprorsum 6th-Mar-2014 05:35 am (UTC)
Well, ain't that cute.
bprorsum 6th-Mar-2014 05:36 am (UTC)
Juno was nice and all but um, I'm going to need you to do some new work.
