#TBT: Ellen Page Makes Fun of Lesbian Rumors on SNL

Ellen Page SNL 2008

Before she was, in fact, a 'primo lesbian.'

That's why her appearance on Saturday Night Live that year was such a prophetic homage to her inevitable coming out. In the skit in question, she plays a young woman who discovers her sexuality at a Melissa Etheridge concert (where I assume most lesbians are born). Playing the perfect boyfriend, Andy Samberg promises to go gay, too. We're holding you to that, Samberg!
