In December, the “Juno” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” star announced that he is transgender and shared with fans that the actor’s preferred pronouns were he / they.

The actor recently opened up about his transitional surgery, describing it as “saving” and explaining that it led him to feel comfortable in her body for the first time.

Discussing her operation during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Page said, “I want people to know that not only has it changed my life, but I believe it saves a lot of people’s lives.”

When asked by Winfrey what had brought him “the most joy” since the transition, the actor was moved and said that the little things gave him the greatest happiness.

“It’s, you know, getting out of the shower and having the towel around your waist, and looking in the mirror and saying, ‘There I am,'” Elliot Page said.

And I don’t have that moment of panic… It’s being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body, probably for the first time.

In March, he became the first transgender man to appear on the cover of Time magazine.
