Ellen Page was selected by W magazine as one of five women “who totally rule” for their “New Royals” issue. The Canadian star graces one of the five covers with a photo that has a very Annie Hall vibe.
In the inside picture, Page looks stunning as she strips down to her underwear and a cape.
During the interview, Page talks about her difficult roles and how she prepares for them.
“At 17, I co-starred in Hard Candy, about a pedophile and his victim, whom I played. My character had to castrate the pedophile. I’ve always loved learning things for a part, and I remember researching castration and thinking, ‘This is so interesting,'” she explained.
“I’m a nerd that way: I love the challenges of this job.”
