When Juno premiered, Ellen Page wasn’t a teen, but she sure looked like it! Long before Ellen became a household name, she was a child actor (like Juno costar Jason Bateman), starting her career at the age of 10! in Pit Pony, a TV movie-turned-series. In addition to her baby face and great acting, real young hairstyles (ponytails and messy buns) made Ellen believable as an unreluctant, teen mom-to-be. In between filming, the Ellen chose pretty simple dos like the Teen Angel shag (above)… polished up only for a gallery photo session!
In Whip It Ellen has the role of another angst-filled high-schooler, Bliss, and uses her hair to make a statement: “I don’t want to be the beauty queen/deb that Mom dreams of .” So her coifs range from blue-streaked punkster to wild curli-locks (that fly out from under her helmet when Bliss is “playing” Babe Ruthless). A promo shot for Whip It shows Ellen’s character pretending to be glamorous when the skates come off (above). Her tight ringlets are loosened up and windblown…(a fave look of super models/stars and the only impracticle hairstyle here).
Off the set, Ms. Page stays “real”…even at galas like the Whip It premiere. Surrounded by Big Hair and Bling, Ellen stands out in her relaxed style… as if she doesn’t need the trappings of Hollywood to support her rising star status.
Currently the petite brunette is co-starring with big star Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception, coming out in July. What’s next for Ellen? Loyal fans predict a future so bright we’ll have to wear shades!
