10 reasons Ellen Page should be your role model

Ever since Ellen Page came out at the Time to Thrive conference on February 14, 2014, she has been drawing round after round of applause. And that's because the girl once known for being the pregnant gal from "Juno" has grown up to be a pretty remarkable role model.

But Page's gutsy admission only puts the cherry on the cake on things that are likable about her. Like the fact she went on Conan O'Brien's show and showed off how she could bounce a ball on her head (note Conan's expression in the background).

She also showed that she's quite the juggler. Obviously, Page is a master of odd tricks.

Before all this, though, Page brought us a character that made it distinctly OK for us to not be sure about who we are just yet, which is a relief for most human beings to hear.

Also, she's clearly into superhero costumes, which we love.

She's not afraid to look silly, as evidenced here by her unabashed imitation of the Kraken.


As if acting talent wasn't enough, she plays the guitar too. And manages to charm Barbara Walters while she's at it.

She's clearly got a fiesty side, too. Watch out, ladies.

If she thinks you're full of it, she's not going to hide it from you. And that's the real Ellen Page, not a role she played.

But what's the best thing about Page? Beyond all her lovely quirks, she has things to say that we could all stand to hear.
