Ellen Page appears on "Chelsea" to discuss Orlando mass shooting / New »Into the Forest« trailer by DirecTV

Ellen Page has joined the slew of celebrities speaking out about the massacre at Orlando's Pulse gay nightclub, which left 49 dead and 53 wounded last Sunday and is considered the worst mass shooting in modern US history. While on Chelsea Handler's self-titled Netflix talk show "Chelsea", the Canadian actress positioned the tragedy as part of a recurring pattern of violence in the LGBTQ community.

"The reality is that violence towards LGBT people is a common thing. Hate crimes towards LGBT people. Extremely anti-gay, anti-bi, anti-trans rhetoric that is constantly creating a poisonous environment which leads to people hating themselves, people being violent towards one another, to bullying, to abuse, and it really needs to stop." Getting emotional and almost tearing-up, she continued: "People are struggling, and they deserve to live freely and love freely and not be afraid."

Chelsea, in turn, urged change in regards to assault weapons that people have easy access to. "Whether you believe in guns or not, whatever we're doing isn't working, so we all have to have the conversation and continue to have the conversation on how to fix this country, and what we can do," the host said. "They should be banned. People argue back and forth on Twitter anytime you make a comment. People say 'What about the Second Amendment?', but these are assault weapons. You shouldn't have to have an assault weapon to defend yourself. At some point, having the Second Amendment shouldn't supersede your right to go out to a dance club and have a good night. You shouldn't have to be armed."

Not everything in Thursday's episode, however, was about the recent Orlando tragedy. Handler was curious about Page's choices in her career to which she revealed, "it's usually a story that inspires me, something I'm thinking a lot about in my life at the time or something that makes me think about something differently, or a character that feels unique to me." With regard to the second season of her VICELAND show »Gaycation« currently filming, the actress stated she was thankful to share the experience of exploring LGBT communities around the world with her best friend Ian Daniel. "I'm so grateful to people around the world that face so much difficulty and struggle, and are willing to share their stories with us."

Other guests on the couch were actress Florence Henderson and Handler's favorite, third-grade teacher Mrs. Schectman. One of the reasons why Ellen was included in the mix was that her own mother is a teacher as well, who she also talked about at the beginning, saying that she never was taught by her mum in school but she knew that she was "an amazing teacher."


Since it is one of EPO's principles to think outside the box, we also would like to inform you that Ellen's good friend and co-owner of the Wooden Monkey restaurant Lil MacPherson has launched a website at www.lilforchange.com for her campaign to be elected mayor of Halifax. Guess who's endorsement was the first up? Even though the majority of you live outside of Nova Scotia and you probably don't know or even care much about the local government and the upcoming October municipal elections, Page's passionate praise is worth checking out in our opinion! Thanks to Wayne for the heads-up!

Furthermore, please be reminded that Patricia Rozema's post-apocalyptic drama will be released on June 23 next week on DirecTV's Video On Demand service, prior to its theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles on July 22!
