Ellen Page and Girlfriend Samantha Thomas Make Their Red Carpet Debut at TIFF 2015
Cute couple alert.
Ellen Page made Sunday night at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival date night for herself and girlfriend Samantha Thomas. The occasion? The premiere of Page’s latest film Freeheld, which also stars the great Julianne Moore.
Page and her plus-one made their red carpet debut in chic matching tuxedo ensembles (Page wore Yves Saint Laurent). On the carpet, the Canadian actress gushed to E! with three powerful words about her date: “I’m in love.”
According to Page, “Walking down the carpet holding my girlfriend’s hand is pretty special… it’s pretty awesome.”
Page’s circle of supporters on Sunday also included BFF Ruby Rose, who took to Instagram to shower the 28-year-old star with these sweet words.
It wasn’t all serious business — Rose also made fun of Page’s attire. In fact, it looks like there was some sort of memo about wearing tuxedo-inspired outfits. (But let’s be real here, if they were waiters, they’d be the hottest waiters alive).
