Elliot Page reveals in his new memoir that he and Kate Mara had a secret romantic relationship.
At the time, Mara was with long-term boyfriend Max Minghella.
According to Page, Minghella was supportive of their relationship.
Elliot Page says he and Kate Mara had a secret relationship while the actress was dating "Babylon" actor Max Minghella.
Page wrote that the "House of Cards" actress was the first person he fell for "after my heart was broken," though it's unclear who he's speaking about.
In an excerpt from the memoir shared with People magazine, Page writes: "This was right after I'd come out as gay and it was a time of exploration and also heartbreak."
"I think my relationship, or whatever you want to call it with Kate, very much encapsulates a certain dynamic that I consistently found myself in, which was falling for people that — I think a lot of us do this — who aren't fully available," he continued. "And the sort of safety in that and the highs and the lows and the serotonin bump, and then it goes away."
At the time, Mara and Minghella had been together for close to four years. Page said Mingella was supportive of them exploring a romantic relationship. According to Page, Mara told him: "I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can."
Minghella and Mara officially split in late 2014. In 2017, she married actor Jamie Bell. In 2018, Page married dancer Emma Portner, and they divorced in 2021.
Page and Mara remain close friends. In 2017, they starred in the romantic drama "My Days of Mercy." They played death penalty protesters on opposite sides of the cause who fall in love.
"I think the love and care that we have for each other is its very own special thing," Page told People. "Separate from the intimacy that I write about."
