Picks and Pans Review: Ellen Page
TOUGH GIRL OF THE WEEK
Is this the face of terror? Nova Scotia native Page, 19, takes vengeance on a pedophile in Hard Candy, and she'll fight on as a young mutant in X-Men: The Last Stand, out May 26.
ON PLAYING HARD CANDY'S AVENGING 14-YEAR-OLD I just worked on creating a balance of vulnerability. It was about letting all moral debate out of my head. She sees something wrong with society and she's going to do something about it.
ON CANADIAN COMMON SENSE I'm so grateful to be from Halifax. In L.A. people's heads get caught up in this silly world. It's like, "You're making movies. Congrats, but please, calm down. Have you seen the world lately?"
ON HER TURN AS KITTY PRIDE IN X-MEN Every single day my mind was blown. I got to do this great stunt where I'm 70 feet in the air. I look over and there's Halle [Berry] up on wires as well. She gave me the biggest, most genuine smile. That's when I was like, "Who gets to do stuff like this?" I know you'd rather hear that Famke [Janssen] threw a shoe at me, but that didn't happen.
