In December 2020, actor Eliot Page, who used to go by Ellen Page, came out as transgender. In a lengthy Instagram post, he revealed his identity, and in return, he received all love and support from his fans and followers. 

Recently, he posted his first shirtless picture on his Instagram showing off his ripped abs, which sent the internet into a frenzy mode.

Via the captions, Page revealed that this was the first time he was wearing swim trunks. The actor also proudly showed off his body with scars from the top surgery he underwent earlier this year. 

Health Line defines top surgery as reconstructive surgery on people who wish to alter their chest size and shape. It is done on individuals who want to look either more masculine or feminine based on their chest. Page went through surgery to remove his breast tissues to achieve a flatter chest. 

Ever since he posted the picture, the Inception star has received nothing but love from his famous friends. Page’s co-star from Umbrella Academy, Justin Cornwell, praised Page’s muscular physique and claimed he understood why he was terrific during workouts. 

Jillian Mercado commented he was proud of Page, and his photo was “a pure joy.” Miley Cyrus simply wrote “Hot” with a heart emoji while actress Julianne Moore wished the 34-year-old a happy summer.

Fans React To Page’s Photo 

As soon as the actor posted his photo, ‘Elliot’ started trending on Twitter. His fans showed appreciation to Page, sharing their feelings about his shirtless photo. 

Most of the fans were appreciating how ‘ripped’ Page looked with his abs.

All in all, people couldn’t help but be happy for the actor. 

Page Coming Out As Transgender 

After the actor announced his gender identity on Instagram, he further elaborated it with Time. He revealed he wanted to be a boy since the age of nine.

However, he couldn’t do that since he got his first gig at the age of ten. Since then, he started acting professionally, which made his desire to change his gender difficult. 

Nevertheless, he finally came out, and since then, he has been strongly advocating for Trans rights. He reflected coming out as transgender with Oprah Winfrey on Apple TV+'s The Oprah Conversation.
