Elliot Page has revealed that he was secretly dating Kate Mara, while the actress was in a relationship with “Babylon” actor Max Minghella.

In his new memoir “Pageboy,” which will be released on June 6, Page stated that the relationship began shortly after his 2014 coming-out.

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.”

Mara and Minghella had been dating for about four years at the time. Mingella, according to Page, was okay with them considering a romantic connection. Page reportedly overheard Mara saying, “I never thought I could be in love with two people, and now I know I can.”

In the latter part of 2014, Minghella and Mara split formally. She married actor Jamie Bell in 2017. Page married ballerina Emma Portner in 2018; their marriage ended in divorce in 2021.

Mara and Page are still good friends. They acted in the love story “My Days of Mercy” in 2017. They portrayed two opposing death penalty opponents who fell 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.”
